Lacking In Love?
Running Low On Love?
Cars need gas,
twitter needs tweets,
but people need love!
We all need someone to put their arms around us
and tell us "Everything is going to be OK!"
Just to let us know that we are loved.
How can we know what love really is?
As I was reading through the book of Zephaniah...
(one of those Minor Prophet books in the Bible that
we don't read very often) and I came across a beautiful
picture of God's love for His people.
We know the Old Testament was written to Israeland
the Lord has a special place for them in His heart.(see
But, Galatians 3: 29 " tell us if we are Christ, then we are Abraham's
seed, and heirs according to the promise." So, we
can claim those Old Testament promises as Christians.
Plus, we know that the Lord is the same, yesterday, today
and forever, and His love for those who trust in Him is
This is the picture I got from reading these verses in Zephaniah.
It is that of the heart of a loving father to his children.
As I read these verses, I saw a little boy running to his daddy
because he is afraid for his life. He is crying, feeling lost and afraid.
A big bully had been picking on him, calling him names,
telling him that his father didn't love him.
The little boy comes running to his daddy, weeping,
shaking fearfully. Then, the father reaches out his big
arms and says, "Don't be afraid". He hugs his son,
kissing his head and comforting him with his love.
Then, the father picks up the little child and
plays gleefully with him as the father dances
with the son and lifts him up in the air as they both
laugh and rejoice together.
This is the picture I got today of God's love for you
when I read this Scripture.
I pray you will meditate upon it today.
Here it is:
"In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem; (Linda's note: put your name here)
'Do not fear:
Zion, let not your
hands be weak.
The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.'"
I pray you will let the love of the Father comfort
and encourage you today. He is saying,
"Don't be afraid, I'm here to comfort you with my love.
I want to rejoice over you and sing and be glad with you."
That's the heart of Father God for you today.
You are loved!
Until next time...
