I AM the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was born, Heaven rejoiced. At Jesus' birth, an angel with a multitude of the heavenly host praised God. (Luke 2:8-14.) However, the celebration of life was not limited to Jesus' birth alone. We, along with the heavenly host, also rejoiced and celebrated your birth. You are created in Our image. (Genesis 1:26-27.) You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14.) Before We formed you in the womb, We knew you. (Jeremiah 1:4-5.) We specifically and purposefully formed you in Our hands like a potter forms the clay. (Isaiah 64:8.) We are rejoicing over you. (Isaiah 62:5.)
You have so much inside of you. There is so much you have to offer. We love you desperately. You have ravished Our hearts. (Song of Solomon 4:9.) You are a gem of glistening radiance, shining brightly like a lighthouse built upon a strong rock. The world sees your light, and is drawn to it. Out of your heart flows rivers of living water. (John 7:38.) You bring peace to turbulent storms. You help bring order out of chaos. You bring life to barren places. You cause crooked places to be made straight, and rough ways smooth. (Luke 3:3-6.) You dazzle with Our glory. You are a special treasure. We love you unconditionally and perfectly. Be filled with Our love.
8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
4 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
8 But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.
5 For as a young man marries a virgin, So shall your sons marry you; And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, So shall your God rejoice over you.
Song of Solomon 4:9
9 You have ravished my heart,
My sister, my spouse;
You have ravished my heart
With one look of your eyes,
With one link of your necklace.
38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
3 And he went into all the region around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins, 4 as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make His paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough ways smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’"
