What is the shocking theology behind the fact that God thinks you're His favorite flavor?


The sages all say it, but can it really be true? 
 


“Each soul is my favorite.” 

How is this possible?

Limitless Supply

Head to Heart

Q:  So how does one move this material from head to heart? 
A:  Experience. (Because heart knowledge is experiential.)

Examples, from deep to deepest:

  1. Family:  this is the place where God has designed experience of unconditional favoritism to happen normally. However, most families seriously distort this, therefore it's essential to have generational prayer for Inner Healing.
  2. Marriage:  no one else can replace you in marriage, where each is a permanent favorite.  (And each resulting person is a function of a unique relating.)
  3. Experiential prayer.  There is nothing like having God directly tell you that you're a favored favorite.

Normally, the best practical prayer for experiencing God is the laying of hands, which has a "Spirit" about it that feels like it's your birthday. This taps into God's infinite charm for the person, which is not just a bonus— it’s the essence of why you were given life.

Objection:   " I don’t have the same gifts as others for experiential praying"

It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree, helping each other to one or other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilization—these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit—immortal horrors or everlasting splendours. (C.S. Lewis in the Weight of Glory)


Why does God think you’re special?  Because you are special -- uniquely His.

Love Unmatched

Life is not about waiting for and collecting blessings.  If you look only for the blessing, you will miss Me as I pass on by once you collect your goods. 

This life is first and foremost about your relationship with Me.  Does anyone still know that a life of blessedness flows from our relating?  The true blessings of life are attained in your knowing Me, for there is no higher attainment.  Everything else you’ll ever gain—wealth, health, friends, prestige—all of it will be gone one day. 

Look for Me in these and other possessions for I augment each part of life and put the proper touch into it in such a way that you’ll know where things belong and how fleeting possessions of any kind are. 

I bring seasons of anointing to areas of your life that only last for a time—some as short as a sunset, others as long as another’s life.  But in the end, it all comes back to you and Me. 

It is in this connection that true love finds its expression, a love that builds My Kingdom on the earth and prepares the way for your coming to Me, closer and closer with each step, together forever, a love unmatched in the universe.  Let us love as I have ordained it.  Do not let My gifts for you ever be a source of entanglement.  For the true light that shines brightest, shines when you come to Me with open hearts and hands, yearning only to know and love Me more deeply.

 

A man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.
Luke 12:15
