He is making her rise; bestowing fame and honor on one who never thought herself worthy of praise. Yes, fame. Dreams that sparkle. Abundant joy and armfuls of it.
Daughter, you need no longer fear harm. Yaweh, the King of Israel, is among you!
A living person, a giving Father. You who see yourself as inferior – throw it off, push it behind you with all you’ve got! The darkening lies will be removed and with new eyes you will see how lovely and deserving of blessings you are. Today is yours. Take it. Something is happening; something is stirring within. Your pleasures, purpose, and very being are awakening from the farthest of corners. You’re coming alive.
This is when Jesus clapped for her, and He continued cheering her on as she made her way closer; one thought at a time.
