Daniel 10:19, “And he said, ‘O man greatly loved, fear not, peace be with you; be strong and of good courage.’ And as he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, ‘Let my Lord speak, for you have strengthened me.'” ESV
This was the second time he told Daniel he was greatly loved, see v. 11.
I love chocolate, but not as much as I love David. He is greatly loved.
I love my children, but not as much as I love David. He is greatly loved.
I love my parents, but not as much as I love David. He is greatly loved.
That is how God loves me. I am greatly loved.
He doesn’t want me to be afraid. He wants me to live in peace. He wants me to be strong. He wants me to be courageous.
He gives all of those things to me because I am greatly loved…
…and so are you.
