Hidden Words: Deepening Day 17, God’s Love & Our Relationship to Him – Arabic 15, 17, 40

In Hidden Word # 15 from the Arabic, presented next, Bahá’u’lláh tells us “Turn thy face unto Mine and renounce all save Me;” He then goes on to tell us why we should do this and of the futility of turning to anyone else. If you think about it, since Bahá’u’lláh is the perfect Mirror, a Manifestation of God, turning to Him is like turning to God Himself. To whom else but God should we turn, and what benefit could we possibly get from turning to anyone but God? In addition are presented two more Hidden Words in which we are told of our great need for Him.

“O SON OF UTTERANCE! Turn thy face unto Mine and renounce all save Me; for My sovereignty endureth and My dominion perisheth not. If thou seekest another than Me, yea, if thou searchest the universe for evermore, thy quest will be in vain.” [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A15.]


“O SON OF MAN! Wert thou to speed through the immensity of space and traverse the expanse of heaven, yet thou wouldst find no rest save in submission to Our command and humbleness before Our Face.”
 [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A40.]

“O SON OF MAN! Be thou content with Me and seek no other helper. For none but Me can ever suffice thee.” [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A17.]

Indeed, He lives in our hearts, if we would but prepare a place for Him.
