THE ROYAL TREATMENT
Have you ever experienced a moment when you were truly lavished upon?
Treated like absolute royalty, given incredible favor and esteem, a time when you really felt honored and respected? ~ It feels absolutely wonderful, doesn't it! ~ Our heart fills up with all that goodness and it's almost as if we stand taller, like a child being praised by a parent. ~ Sure, its rare and doesn't happen very often, but did you know God LAVISHES His love upon you every single day? ~ What does that even mean...? ~ LAVISH: to bestow something in generous or extravagant quantities. Or to cover something thickly or liberally with (love, grace, acceptance, favor). ~ Imagine it like this. Starbucks not stopping with the whipped cream atop your frappucino 📷:-) They just keep squirting on as much as you want, way more than you need. Truly extravagant. ~ That's what God does in His love for us. ~ It's extreme in it's portion size, plentiful, and incredibly extravagant. No expense is spared! Not even the life of His son. ~ He loves YOU with an intensity that would blind you with its brilliance. ~ 1 John 3:1 says, 'Consider the kind of extravagant love the Father has lavished on us—He calls us children of God! It’s true; we are His beloved children' ~ Since that's true, perhaps you can stand a little taller today? ~ Feel a little fuller in your heart, and give a little more sunshine to those around you... ~ Rest in the truth that YOU ARE LOVED.
