Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Isaiah 49:15

"Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will never forget you."

Let’s be honest. Sometimes, when God delays, we feel forgotten. Someone has said that it is the length of the trial, not the severity of it, that is most threatening to us. When a painful trial begins, we rally our resolve, we call our comrades, and we determine to defeat our "enemy." But as the days wear on and nothing changes, we lose heart and begin to grow weary. We never imagined God would let us suffer so long!

God says it is as likely that He would forget us as it is that a mother would forget her nursing child (Isaiah 49:15–16)—though it doesn’t seem like it in the midst of our trials. Not only can we feel forgotten—we can feel forsaken as well.

So when you pray to God in your hour of seeming abandonment, just remember: God has heard that prayer before, even from His own Son. He knows what you are going through. In fact, He deliberately turned His back on His own Son so that He would never have to turn His back on us. He tells us, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."

Bro. Paul
