Good morning, Lord Jesus. King of kings and Lord of lords, be King of my heart and Lord of my life.  ...

"Truly, the one who touches you touches the apple of My eye" (Zechariah 2:8).

Last night at our house church we reflected on our identity and how we are to view ourselves and others in Christ.  Help me see myself as the apple of Your eye -- chosen, beloved, one in whom You delight. I'm created in Your image and called according to Your purpose. I am a child of God. And my Father is the Creator of heaven and earth, the sovereign Lord of my life, and the Lover of my soul.

You correct me and discipline me because You love me. You teach me and lead me because You want me to become all You created me to be, fully alive in You. And You are not pleased with anything that would harm me or hinder me from seeing and knowing the truth of my identity and the fulfillment of my destiny in You.

Help me see myself as You see me. Help me honor and respect myself as You honor and respect me. Help me love myself as You love me. You say to me each day, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued My faithfulness to you" (Jeremiah 31:2). "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:22-23). If You love me so much, so should I. If You see me that way -- even as the apple of Your eye -- so should I. And so I will -- as best as I can and all by Your grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. 

My family,I pray you see yourself as the apple of our Father's eye.  I pray you honor and respect yourself, and love yourself, just as your Father does, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
