YOU are GOD’S Great Treasure! November 22 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My child, who is My great treasure,
You, My child, are indeed My great treasure and My pearl of great price! Jesus came seeking you and He found you. He “sold” all He had to “buy” you and then hid you in Me forever!
You were, are and always will be so valuable that We will do anything and everything to have you be with Us. We would rather die than live without you… and Jesus did! We refuse to be God without you! We had you personally in Our mind before creation. Because of Our great love and in love, we conceived of you first in our mind and heart. We chose who your earthly parents would be and when you would be born.
We placed you here at just such a time as this as part of Our big picture plan to restore everything and everyone to Us in Christ. We have a lot invested in you!
We arranged for the family in which you were born and grew up in. We orchestrated the people and events of your youth. We have cooperated with you all your life, honoring your will and decisions and submitting to them all the while at the same time sovereignly working things together for the good… your good.
Jesus has been in you and you in Him since before you were born. I placed you in Him at the cross 2,000 years ago! He took all your sin away in advance. I forgave it all, reconciled you to Me and created you anew… a new creation born from above when I raised Jesus from the dead.
I raised you with Him… in Him… pure, holy, innocent, right with Me and without fault forever. I justified you, sanctified you and glorified you. I made you perfectly fit for relationship with Me. I set you apart in Christ for Me and Christ is in you, the hope of glory! You are indeed My hope of glory for the world you live in right now! As people see Christ in you… living, working, loving, giving, encouraging, affirming, helping and serving them, they are drawn to Me.
My Spirit in them resonates with their spirit. I have already made them one with Me at the cross and when they see Christ in you, they see themselves mirrored in you… in Christ… and they are persuaded of their original design! Christ in you is like a magnet in you attracting them to Him.
Yes, My child, We have Our very selves invested in you and We have orchestrated a great abundant return on Our investment! It’s in the heavenly bank! You can count on it. Count on Us. Believe Us. Trust us.
