“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!” Isaiah 49:15 (NIV)
The maternal bond between a mother and her child is strong, but God’s bond with His saints is stronger. Sadly, we hear of those who abandon their own flesh and blood. We wonder how and why, but there is no wondering about God’s paternal love when it comes to us. The Lord whom you believe in through faith is compassionate and will never abandon you.
As impossible as it may seem for a mother to forget her new born baby, it is even more impossible for the Lord to forget His own. There is no out of sight out of mind for the Lord when it comes to us because His love for us is stronger than we can comprehend.
Let’s pray today that we may be certain that our Lord has not and will not forget us.
