A REVELATION OF GOD’S LOVE
I want to share with you a revelation of God’s love from the passage below.
16 “Do not fear;
Zion, let not your hands be weak.
17 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.”
– Zephaniah 3: 16-17 (NKJV)
These are some of my favourite scriptures. They are a reminder that God is with me, a Mighty Warrior, who saves, so I need not be afraid.
Verse 17 gives me further affirmation that God cares about me with very tender imagery that reminds me of how a mother treats her child.
God rejoices over me with gladness, He shushes me with His love when I’m upset. And the icing on the cake, He rejoices over me with singing.
Picture a mother cradling her child in her arms, making sweet whispers to calm it down, singing a lullaby to it or just singing with joy that she has the gift of this child and making the baby laugh.
That is what I see every time I read these scriptures. God loves me, God fights for me, God is concerned about me, God cherishes me and He is excited about me- the work of His hands.
Do you see what I see in these scriptures? I hope you do and I pray that that revelation of God’s love fills you with the confidence you need to go into this new week. Amen in Jesus’ name. 🧡

“15 Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.” – Isaiah 49:15-16
“Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you,
I will give people in exchange for you,
nations in exchange for your life.” – Isaiah 43:4

Reading this post has taught me that Jesus is the light of the world, and His light is love. . It is also a reminder that God is with me at all times.
The part that struck me was, “he will quiet you with his love.” Sometimes, there are too many noises in our soul- voices that point out our inadequacy, the voice of fear and lots more but he said he will quiet me with his love, his peace will comfort my soul. Thank you, ma!
Through this post I learned that Jesus is the light of the world and that through the love he shows me, I believe that God is with me no matter the situation I find myself in.
Indeed the love of God is most precious.
God loves me, I know he loves me. He has looked beyond me and showed me mercy. If not for God, my case would have been a sad one, but because he loves me, he fights my battles. He’s worthy of my praise.
This reminds me of how God loves me even more than a mother loves her child. Thanks, ma.
God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. His love is indeed irreplaceable.
No one loves me as much as Jesus Christ does.
May His name be praised forever! Amen!
Thank you very much ma, Truly, God loves me. I’m not scared of anything anymore because he will always fight for me.
Thank you so much Ma, I now have strong confidence that God will always come through for me.
This is a reminder that God is always with us !
Am proud to be loved by my father in heaven
God’s love overwhelms me, because even in my unfaithfulness and iniquity he still loves me.
God’s abundant love on His children is nonpareil,even in the midst of carelessness and negligence of man’s service and worship to Him, He still shows us love and mercy.
I have never met Aunty Edith, but I have heard a lot about her. While in 100 level then, senior course mates would refer to her as an inspiration. This is why! Aunty Edith is a light that cannot be hidden under a bushel. A light to youths in this generation. Thank you ma.
Thank you. Glory to God.
God’s love for us is in replaceable
This is truly a picture of how deep Gods love is for us
There’s no love without christ, no matter what we go through we should alway trust in God and have faith in him
