"And a voice from heaven said, 'This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.'"
This scene marks the commissioning of Jesus’ ministry here on earth. It was no coincidence that these deeply affirming words from the Father directly precede His time in the desert plagued by hunger and tempted repeatedly by Satan. We, too, need to receive the love and affirmation of our Father so that we can face the challenges before us with a “full tank” of the only fuel that can sustain us. The love He pours into us is life-giving. Would He say, “It was nothing at all”? No! Because it was, in fact, everything!
Are you in need of affirming words from your Heavenly Father today? Believe as Zephaniah 3:17 says that He rejoices over you with singing.
