Do you feel forgotten by God? Well, don’t go by your feelings; go by what the Bible says.

In Isaiah, God uses the beautiful example of a mother and her child. Isaiah 49:15 says: “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!” (NIV)

Isaiah 49:15: God has not forgotten you!

What mother forgets the baby at her breast? No mother would do that. But God says even though she may forget, He would never forget you. The likelihood of a mother forgetting the child at her breast is so low (in fact, it’s almost impossible), but God says that the chance of Him forgetting you is even lower.

Still not convinced? How about this verse:

Psalm 139:16-18: “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.” (NIV; emphasis added by me)

Believe God and what He tells you in His Word. Even though you may not feel Him or feel loved; He loves you and He is with you. In fact, He promised that He would never leave you, nor forsake you. And you are successful in all you do because God is with you.

He is so madly in love with you, He planned out all the days of your life before a single one of them ever happened. His thoughts about you are so numerous, they would outnumber the grains of sand. And when you put your trust in what Jesus did on the cross for you, He took away all of your punishment and condemnation. So God is not thinking thoughts of condemnation or punishment toward you. His thoughts toward you and about you are thoughts of peace, love and joy. His beloved, blameless, righteous child.
