This is the first truth you need to know.
It is the hook upon which all the Heavenly wisdom and revelation you need can be laid upon.
If you have been praying and seeking God for answers; if you have been grieved by the status quo, or by the condition of others. If you want guidance and wisdom:
Above all and before all, grasp this one truth. This is how Heaven knows you. This is how the Father sees you…
How God Sees You
In the book of Daniel, the prophet is crying out to God for a breakthrough. His home city of Jerusalem and the state of his nation weigh heavily on his heart.
Daniel has already experienced powerful prophetic visions and encounters. But still, the insight and answers he wants are beyond him.
Suddenly, the angel Gabriel appears.
He is sent by God in answer to Daniel’s prayers. And he has one thing to say to Daniel before anything else.
It is a truth God wants the prophet to understand.
- And it is a designation the angel uses, not once, but three times. 
“Man greatly beloved”.
You are Valued
“O Daniel…At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved“ (Dan 9:23a, NKJV)
The Hebrew word translated ‘greatly beloved’, chemdah (Strongs H 2532) means that which is desirable, pleasant and precious. It is used of precious jewels.
As you seek God for wisdom and for answers to prayer, stand before Him as one who knows your worth to God.
You are desired.
You are known.
You are His son, His daughter, greatly loved.
This Truth Heals Your Heart
Perhaps you have been struggling in some area.
Let this word breathe healing into your heart today. For it holds true, regardless of what you’ve done, or what has been done to you.
In your worst condition, God placed this value upon you: You are worth the sacrifice of His Son Jesus.
“For God so loved” 
This is how you are known in Heaven:
This Word Gives You Strength
A hook may be hidden from view, but its strength will determine its capacity to bear weight.
And this truth is the hook upon which all the Heavenly wisdom and revelation you need can be laid upon.
“…he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!” (Dan 10:18, NKJV)
It is the third time Gabriel calls Daniel “man greatly beloved.” His words and touch impart strength. They dispel fear.
Do you need strength to rise?
Do you need capacity to bear the weight of all God has called you to do?
A Truth That is a Heavenly ‘Hook’
A hook is powerful.
It can be used to capture, to secure, to join or to hang an object upon. Great paintings—masterpieces—can be displayed using hooks.
Receive this one word before all.
This is the “hook”—the truth that will enable you to fully receive all your Father has for you.
As it did for Daniel, this message heralds the answer to your prayers.
And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” (Dan 10:10b-11, NKJV)
Today you are seeking God for wisdom, interceding, looking for answers.
You want to see His power released, His Spirit move.
This is who you are.
Today’s message is, I believe, a word from the heart of the Father to all who read it.
But I would particularly like to dedicate this post to my husband Malcolm (pictured here), who has his 60th birthday today.
Beloved to the Father, and to me, and to many. You are His masterpiece.
 For the three references see Dan 9:23, 10:11, 10:19
 ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’ (John 3:16, NIV) Also ‘But because of his great love for you, God, who is rich in mercy, made you alive with Christ even when you were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.’ (see Eph 2:4-5 NIV)

Hi Felistus, thanks I’m glad it was a blessing to you
Helen thank you so much you are such a blessing to me! Only yesterday I dreamt about what you wrote! I saw my spiritual father telling me that he is preparing me for the glory of God, after reading your post it was a confirmation of what my father said to me! Thank you Helen I pray God continues to use you to help us hear from him! You are such a blessing to me!!
That’s a significant dream, Tinashe!
Thank you so much for sharing. Every time I read that word “beloved”, I felt it in my spirit. I needed that refreshing word.
Hi Amy, that’s so good! I was talking to a friend today and she mentioned how it was the favor of God standing out to her through this word – and that was a great thought, I needed to hear too.
Our Father longs for us to know the measureless nature of His favor towards us. Show us more Lord.
I love to hear your word from God. You are my conirmation and insight in what I am hearing from Papa God. I will have to read your book when I get through with my take and insight on Glory.n My study comes from what God shows me and talks to me about. I explain about the whole Glory, Doxa, Shekian, & Kavod.
Thank you, I would love to become your friend. So I lay this in Papas’ hands.
Love, Grace, & Glory
That would make a great study, Jim! I pray you are immersed in His glory as you teach
This is timely! Thank you.
As a prophetic intercessory you can imagine much warfare around me because of standing in the gap for people or the church etc. this is a great analogy: the hook and our being beloved!
Happy birthday to your hunk! May the next 60 years be a year of reaping harvest and rejoicing and thanksgiving! Amen.
Hi Ijeoma, intercessory prayer is a powerful ministry! I’m currently working on a prayer school and being freshly inspired about prophetic prayer.
Thank you for the birthday greetings and amen and amen!
