Ephesians 1:5

God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

insight: God’s intent all along has been to adopt us into his family through what Jesus has done for us. This wasn’t “Plan B.” No one twisted his arm. He is so excited about bringing us into his family!

prayer: God, thank you for adopting me as I am. My value and worth is found in being your child. Today, help me to live with confidence in who I am in you.
