This is a word we often hear, but what does it actually mean? As is usual, the word in the Bible isn’t always what the Hebrew word really means. It is often difficult to really translate what the Hebrew word is. This article explains it well:
The verses below have the word lovingkindness in them in older translations. Newer ones use grace or mercy. As you read these WORDS of LOVE below, let HIS LOVINGKINDESS overflow to you. May you KNOW in your heart that HE is all you need!! He overlooks ALL you have done and will give you LIFE everlasting! Then let HIS LOVE flow to all those you meet.
Micah 7:18-19 Who is a God like you, pardoning the sin and overlooking the crimes of the remnant of his heritage? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in grace. He will again have compassion on us, he will subdue our iniquities. You will throw all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Jeremiah 31:3 From a distance Adonai appeared to me, [saying,] “I love you with an everlasting love; this is why in my grace I draw you to me.
As you let HIS LOVE flow through you, let this song bring NEW understanding to WHO your Father is for you!
I have been writing again… Holy Spirit prompted me to write from Proverbs, so almost every day I read a few verses and share some thoughts. So often we read a chapter a day for a month, but there really is so much Truth in this book that we lose a lot by trying to read a full chapter every day. There are many nuggets of wisdom, and looking at them verse by verse can bring the reality home. Taking time to let the Words Adonai gave to Solomon really sink in should change us all.
I’m working on updating the website, so it is a work in progress. Might even change the email address. One step at a time…
Until it is complete, I pray that HIS Words from the book of Proverbs will bring you LIFE and encourage you. May we all learn and grow from the Promises He gives in this amazing book.
