SylviaGod rejoices as your Abba. You are His child on the authority of His Word.

He ordained you and brought you forth.

Hear God's Word for you in Psalm 22:9. The psalmist said, "You brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother's breast." And in Psalm 71:6. "From birth I have relied on you...I will ever praise you."

Receive God's work as He cleanses deep wounds that you received from words and actions in your family of origin. Receive the ministry of Jehovah-Rapha, the healing covenant name of eternal God, as He works in the core of your being. Receive His healing, blessing, and deep release. The Spirit of your Father lives in you to heal and make you whole.

The Spirit of truth and the God of all mercy is ready to bring new life. Receive His cleansing from all hurtful memories, feelings, and emotions. Jesus died to set you free. Release all pain to Him. God promised in His word that He would wash you and make you whiter than snow (Isa 1:18).

Be blessed as God fills up the hole in your heart, those empty spaces, that bottomless pit that craves nearness, affirmation, connection, and significance, and yet fears it, is unable to receive it, and runs away from it. Be at peace, and receive healing from wounds caused by lack of bonding. Receive cleansing from attachment wounds, as Father-God binds you to Himself with cords that cannot be broken.

God fed His Son with His words of approval that nourished Him emotionally. "A voice came from heaven: 'You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased'" (Mark 1:11). These words strengthened Jesus in His inner being. If the Son of God needed these words of affirmation from His Father, how much more do you!

You longed to hear words like that from your earthly father. Receive your heavenly Father's words, "I love you. I am pleased with you." Let your heavenly Father father you. Be blessed to rest secure and safe in His love.
