God Has Not Forgotten You

Key Verse

“But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me…Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me” (Isaiah 49:14,16).

Text — Isaiah 49:13-16


Life is full of challenges and unpleasant experiences which negatively influence our feelings towards God. In times of extreme hardship, we feel that God is estranged from us. The experience of disappointments, financial difficulties, failures and set- backs is common to everyone, including youths. When youths navigate such experiences, they feel that no one cares and that God has forgotten them. In our text, Israel claimed that God had forsaken and forgotten them. Is this your experience? There is hope for you in God.

Replying Israel’s claim, God stressed that a woman may forget her suckling child, but He will not forget them, having graven them in the palms of His hands. What an assurance from God to Christian youths! Beloved, when it seems you are forgotten or when answers to prayers seem delayed, cry out to God. Don’t despair. Don’t doubt God’s promised presence. He will neither forget nor forsake you. He did not forget Joseph in Egypt, or Jeremiah in the dungeon of Malchiah in the court of the prison (Jeremiah 38:4-13). Wait for Him and remain steadfast in faith.


Don’t doubt God’s promised presence


 In adversity, have faith in God.

Prayer for today

Help me Lord to depend on you in times of adversity.
