As A Hen Gathers Her Chicks

Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.

The Lord’s heart longs to gather His people together. His heart is full of compassion and tender mercies; as that of a mother that longs to gather and protect her children. He longs to gather ALL of His children under His wing.

The Lord longs for His children to come and put their trust in Him, to take refuge under His wings! TRUST HIM!

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! -Isa 49:15

From NetBible Isaiah 49:15:
*the Lord’s attachment to Zion{His people} is like a mother’s attachment to her infant child, but even stronger.

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. -2 Pe 3:9

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge{put their trust in You} in the shadow of Your wings. -Ps 36:7

HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty
[Whose power no foe can withstand].
I will say of the Lord, “He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!”
For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. -Ps 91:1-4 AMP

May the LORD repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge. -Ruth 2:12
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. -1 Jn 3:1
