Hidden Words: Deepening Day 12, God’s Love & Our Relationship to Him – Arabic #11, 12, 19

In Hidden Word # 19 from the Arabic, presented next, we can not only feel the love He holds for us, but He also gives an explanation of the direct relationship He has established with us.

“O SON OF THE WONDROUS VISION! I have breathed within thee a breath of My own Spirit, that thou mayest be My lover. Why hast thou forsaken Me and sought a beloved other than Me?”


In the next two Hidden Words, presented below, Bahá’u’lláh also tells of the relationship He has established with us, telling us that “My light is in thee” and “within thee have I placed the essence of My light.” When we reflect this light which He has placed within us, we get a glimpse of and can reflect the beauty of God Himself.

“O SON OF BEING! Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favor upon thee.”[Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A11.]

“O SON OF BEING! With the hands of power I made thee and with the fingers of strength I created thee; and within thee have I placed the essence of My light. Be thou content with it and seek naught else, for My work is perfect and My command is binding. Question it not, nor have a doubt thereof.” [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A12.]

Can we really have any doubt that His “work is perfect”?
