Precious in the sight of Yahweh is the death of his saints.
Promise #89: It is precious for Me to see My faithful ones come home.
We have all experienced the loss of a loved one. We ourselves will one day experience this ultimate transition to glory if Jesus tarries. The Amplified Bible translates Psalm 116:15 this way... Precious (important and no light matter) in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints (His loving ones). (AMP)
Whenever one of our Father's much loved ones come home, it is a very precious and holy time to God. As the Amplified Bible says, it is important and no light matter. My prayer is that this simple yet profound promise of our importance to God will bring much comfort and hope.
The hope of eternal life living in the presence of a loving God and Father is our destiny. It is our birthright because of the finished work of Jesus Christ. We do not have to fear death because we have this hope. May today's promise bring comfort to us for those who we have lost and peace to us to know that it is a precious time in the sight of our God when we will finally be home.
One day, our God and Father will wipe away every tear from our eye and take away all the pain we have suffered on this earth. (Revelation 21:4) This is the hope that we all have in Christ. Photo by Jeff Epp
