I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has kept for you today is from the book of Isaiah 49:15, “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the sun of her womb, Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.”
From the above context we learn that even when your father and mother forget you, God will not forget you. You might be going through some trouble, or some problem that causes you to think, that God has forgotten you. But God says, “I will never forget you, neither will I forsake you.”He says I will be with you always, even to the end of your age.”
God might seem to be silent, but you need to understand that God is working behind you for your welfare. May be you are reading this message with great burden in your heart, as things have gone wrong in your life or may be in your family, I tell you that God will never forget His children especially those who seek Him with your whole heart.
You are saying that in case God had not forgotten you, then you would not have had, to go through such troubles. If only God remembered you then you would not have suffered such terrible things. You are in a fix. The problem has gone beyond your level of control, So you are compelled to think or say that God has forgotten you. He created you and He remembers your frame that you are dust. Your walls are ever before Him, then how can He forget you. We read in the Bible about Hagar.She, was, Abraham’s concubine and the mother of his son Ishmael. Purchased in Egypt, she served as a maid to Abraham’s childless wife, Sarah. So we see that Hagar worked in the house of Abraham as a maid but later she became the wife of Abraham and she gave birth to a son called Ishmael. After some years when Sarah gave birth to Isaac there arose some indifference between the Mistress and the maid. So Abraham sent Hagar out of his house along with her son, as he was commanded by the Lord.
Hagar walked in the wilderness, with her only son. When the water in the skin was empty, she put the boy under one of the bushes. Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she[ began to sob and cry bitterly. God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink. God quenched the thirsty boy and thus gave life to him who was at the verge of death. Thus we see that God remembered Hagar in the wilderness and also her dying son.
Both Abraham and Sarah for whom, Hagar had served so sincerely, had forgotten her. They did not think about her troubles in the desert. What she would do alone in the desert, with the boy or how will she manage if water gets over in the leather bag. But God Remembered Hagar. If this God could remember Hagar, will He not remember you and your family, or your problem? May be your son has not secured a job or your daughter is yet to get married. Nothing seems to happen. Then you tend to think that God has forgotten you. No not at all. God the Father is a God of promise. He will neither leave you nor forsake you. He who promised is faithful. He will guide you in the wilderness of your life as He led Hagar and her son. Do not lose hope. Trust in Him at all times. The Bible says, But whoever listens to Me, will dwell safely. And will be secure without fear of evil. Believe in God and be blessed.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for hearing the cry of Hagar in the wilderness and quenching the thirst of her son, by performing a miracle. Lord we understand that You are a God who remembered Hagar, and You will remember us also. In the same manner do miracles in our life and satisfy our needs. Help us to put our trust in You Lord at times when we are afraid.
