“I will save the limping [ones] and gather the outcasts and will make them a praise and a name in every land of their shame.” (Zephaniah 3: 19, Amplified Bible)
God’s all-embracing Love will not stand for limits, pain, cruelty, division, fear, and shame. This divine Love won’t let any of His ideas be hindered in their progressive way, held back from getting to their destination, from gaining a fuller understanding and awareness of His presence and power.
There are no outcasts from God’s nation. Those who are shunned by humanity’s ignorance or neglect or by their own feelings of unworthiness or failure, are not left out of God’s care, His cleansing and uplifting Life and Love. He assures that those that seem to suffer as outsiders, or those who have made mistakes, will be made to be His very praise, the bright evidence of Life. Through overcoming and through grace they will show forth even more of God’s wisdom, power, and unconditional Love for all to witness.
This promise tells us that we can’t be allowed to limp along physically or mentally. God’s powerful energy and His unhindered purpose, will always lead us forward and upward. This assurance lets us know that where we may feel the least accepted, the most shunned, the most ashamed and unloved, right there will we find that we are not only accepted, but truly appreciated, understood, and thoroughly loved.
