How could I forget you?
When God delays in answering you, do you doubt? End up believing He may have forgotten or even abandoned you? Before your time, the people of Zion experienced the same worry. The Lord responded to their worry by saying:
“‘Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.’” (Read the Bible, Isaiah 49:15-16, NKJV)
We could restate His words like this: “How could I, your Father and Creator, forget or abandon you? You’re so important to Me; see, I’ve inscribed you on the palms of My hands. My gaze never leaves you.”
To help you really understand that He is a loving God, the Lord uses a strong image: that of a mother and her nursing child. Don’t a baby’s hungry cries remind Him of ours? Don’t we also cry out like that sometimes, with varying levels of patience, to show our “hunger” and need? Yet God knows it perfectly, even before we express it…(Read Luke 12:30)
Like a mother…
- God doesn’t need to schedule a reminder to think about you: your name is inscribed on His hands and in His heart.
- He knows each of your needs and provides for them in His timing.
- Finally, if your own family were to forsake you, He would take care of you. (Read Psalm 27:10)
God doesn’t need a reminder not to forget you. He thinks of you constantly, at all times.
I invite you to pray with all your heart…“My Lord, thank You for Your perfect and unfailing love. I praise You for taking care of me every day and helping me overcome each one of my obstacles. I praise You for making me Your beloved child. I love You, Father. Amen.”
Don’t forget: it’s impossible for God to forget you!
Be blessed today.
