WHAT A BLESSING TO BE A CHILD IN GOD’S FAMILY
I: Rejoice in God’s blessings.
II: Drink spiritual milk.
III: Receive a mother’s comfort and care.
|« WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS HOPELESS||None||THE LORD REJOICES OVER US! »|
10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her,
all you who love her;
rejoice with her in joy,
all you who mourn over her;
11 that you may nurse and be satisfied
from her consoling breast;
that you may drink deeply with delight
from her glorious abundance.”
12 For thus says the Lord:
“Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river,
and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream;
and you shall nurse, you shall be carried upon her hip,
and bounced upon her knees.
13 As one whom his mother comforts,
so I will comfort you;
you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
14 You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice;
your bones shall flourish like the grass;
and the hand of the Lord shall be known to his servants,
and he shall show his indignation against his enemies. (ESV)
