I Will Not Forget You
Scripture text Isaiah 44 :21 “Remember these things, Jacob, for you, Israel, are my servant. I have made you, you are my servant; Israel, I will not forget you.
During times of struggles we assume God has forgotten and deserted us. Our God has never forgotten us and never will He forget us. The above scripture reassures each one of us that we are loved dearly and He is thinking about us always and has good plans for us.
Jesus says, “I am with you always to the end of the age. Matthew 28 :20
Although He has promised us over and over again in the scripture to never leave us nor forsake us, we feel God has let us down .
Yet Jerusalem says, “The Lord has deserted us; the Lord has forgotten us.” “Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!” Isaiah 49 ;14 -15
“Yes, even a mother might forget her child, but God assures us that He will never forget you.”
The scripture says,
God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark.Genesis 8 :1
God “remembered Abraham” and spared Lot on his behalf .Genesis 19:29
God remembered Rachel” and she conceived Genesis 30 :22
We have been disloyal to God like the prodigal son but He is always ready to forgive us and embrace us and give us a new life.
He loves us before the world began, He loves us today and He will continue to love us till the end.
When our prayers are unanswered we feel helpless. When we face an unexpected loss of a family member or sickness, we think God has forgotten us. A never-ending financial crisis, a bad medical report, failed opportunities makes us feel we are totally forgotten by God. When our dreams and aspirations are not achieved, we feel abandoned and left alone.
“The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, their tongues fail for thirst. I, the Lord, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them” (Isaiah 41:17).
“For the Lord will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance” (Psalm 94:14).
You are precious in His eyes and He is right beside you and He watches over you and walks with you even in the valley of shadow of death. He hears your heart cries and longings of your soul He is always ready to help you and lift you. He has great plans for you, your family and your future.
Have a blessed day dear child of God!
