He Hasn’t Forgotten You!
“Behold, I have indelibly imprinted (tattooed a picture of) you on the palm of each of my hands…” (Isaiah 49:16 AMP).
There’re some Christians who upon hearing other people’s testimonies of God’s faithfulness wonder if God had forgotten them, asking “O God, what about me?” The Lord has not and will never forget you, for He says, “See, I have tattooed your name upon my palm…” (Isaiah 49:16 TLB). So, don’t give up, help is on the way!
God isn’t partial; He’s not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which you have showed toward His Name (Hebrews 6:10). He’s a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Therefore all you need do is trust Him; keep acting your faith and remain faithful and diligent in your service to Him.
He may not come when you want Him to but He’s always on time; He’s never late. He can and will make happen for you what He’s made happen for others, for He’s no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). What He did for one He’ll do for another under the same circumstances. And even if He’s never done what you’re asking for anyone, He can do it for you, just because you asked Him.
So, quit thinking that the Lord has forgotten you. In Isaiah 49:15 He assures you that though a woman may forget her sucking child, and not show compassion toward her own son, He will never forget you:“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”
When you hear others share their testimonies of the Lord’s goodness to them, greatly rejoice with them and for them with all your heart! The Bible says rejoice with those that rejoice (Romans 12:15), for as you do, you’re making room for your own testimony.
I rejoice at the comfort and assurance that your Word has brought to me today. I thank you for watching over me today to do me good, and for showing me your great love, faithfulness and mercies,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Isaiah 49:15-17; Hebrews 13:5
