Hidden but not forgotten

AMED 55.11

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | Hidden but not forgotten

Prayer will help you find a safe place with God. You may be hidden from the world, but God knows your name. “…your life is hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:3, NKJV)  

Have you ever forgotten someone’s name? Have you ever felt forgotten by others? Maybe you were passed over for a promotion or the love of your life didn’t feel the same about you. No one likes to be forgotten. 

I can’t imagine that anyone forgot Jesus while He lay in a tomb chiseled out of the side of a mountain. He was buried in a rich man’s tomb for a brief period of time, but everyone knew Him. He’d been called “King of the Jews” by the mocking Roman soldiers and “Messiah” by His faithful followers. It’s been two thousand years since Jesus ascended into heaven, and so many have forgotten Him. Even some Christians have become blasé. 

Who do you say He is? Is He still in a tomb, or has He risen again in your life?

Can you imagine the reaction of Jesus’ disciples the day after the crucifixion? They didn’t forget Him, but they probably felt forgotten and even abandoned by God. They didn’t know Jesus was busy in hell getting the keys to hell and the grave: “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison.” (1 Peter 3:18-19, NKJV) He did it all for you and for me. 

While we are still struggling with COVID and its effects, I can promise you that although you don’t see Him, Jesus is working for you. You may have lost a loved one, or you yourself may be sick. I can promise you that Jesus is working for you. 

Do you believe God has forgotten you during these trials? I guarantee you that He hasn’t. The Bible says, “Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” (Romans 8:34, NIV) We may have forgotten Jesus, but He has not forgotten us. Jesus is standing at the right side of the Heavenly Father, praying for you. I’m praying for you because you are a miracle.

    Hey!
    This might cheer someone up.
    You are not the first person who has ever discovered that the “love of their life” didn’t feel the same.
    This might also help someone.
    Just because the feeling wasn’t reciprocal, does NOT mean that they stop being…”The love of their life”.
    This might also help…someone.
    God isn’t the only one who knows your name.
    Unless, you’ve tried really hard to remain in the shadows(most fail miserably), there are probably a whole lot of people who know who I am…and who you are. ;)
    There is a reason my “name” isn’t 34X98x84tyyse…or, Bob Hope.
    I don’t care who else knows who I am…God does, and that is good enough for me. :)

    Thank you for this encouraging word, I needed it. I’ve been feeling forgotten over the last two years by God and those around me. So much so, that I began to drift away from God due to anger, resentment, bitterness and unforgivness. I completely stopped praying for sometime. I felt so alone, but God is so faithful. I didn’t have the energy to pray aloud, but I began asking God to help me quietly from within. After weeks of going through this, I found myself beginning to pray aloud, little by little. Soon, I was praying more and more and eventually, I was back on fire! I would even find myself waking from my sleep praying without ceasing. What the enemy ment for evil, God worked for good!! I am so grateful for God’s unwavering faithfulness, love, mercy and comfort. I felt so bad for turning from God. Yet, he hadn’t forgot about me after all. I realized that pain, rejection and suffering should never lead us away from God, but instead push us towards him. When we feel like no one sees us, hears us, loves us, or protects us, we can trust and believe that God does.

    Thank you for writing today’s message, it was a true reminder and blessing. Thank you Lord for A Miracle Everyday and reminding me of who you are, yesterday, today and forever. 😍

    Love,

    Your vessel

    I feel like God has forgotten me. I feel like everytime in my life when things start to go good for me and I’m finally thinking maybe now it’s my time to be happy….Then boom! I go to church and I pray for “everybody” but myself. I help others every chance I can. But when is it going to be my turn to be happy, when will I ever find a good man to love me back, when will I be able to enjoy happiness? I’m sorry but I do feel forgotten 😢
