Her name is Beulah
I have a friend who just received a very welcome addition to their family; a new baby calf. They named this fine specimen of a heifer calf, Beulah. I saw Beulah’s picture posted on Facebook and she is just too cute. Looking at her picture brought back memories when I would sit in my living room and watch my Daddy’s baby calves romp and play in the pasture in front of my house. It made my heart smile. I wondered about the name Beulah; does it have any significance. I did a little research and found that Beulah is the name the prophet Isaiah gave to the land and nation of Israel. It signifies the perfect union with God spoken about in Isaiah 62:4-5. These are interesting verses. They are God talking about His delight in Israel (Beulah) and how He will be married to the land of Beulah. It goes on to say as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride “….so your God will rejoice over you.” Isn’t that neat? Just think about what He is saying. We know that Jesus will return someday for His bride, the Church. We ARE the church; those who have received Him as Lord and Savior. We are His bride and even though He is in heaven and we are here, He is rejoicing over us! Yes, that’s right. He rejoices over each one individually that belongs to Him, with no partiality or prejudice. We are His delight and with that, should we not also delight ourselves in Him? I think so. When He rejoices over us, Jesus sends us reminders of His love for us. They come in the form of a baby heifer calf, a just-because card in the mailbox at just the right time, a phone call with a familiar voice we haven’t heard in a long time, an angel that comes to our rescue to change a flat tire, a penny found on the ground that wasn’t there a few moments before, and sometimes just a beautiful rainbow in the sky. Rejoice over Him today and remember “Jesus Loves YOU!”
