Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given you today is from the book of Isaiah 49:15,“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!” God cares for you and He promises that He will never leave you. He will not let any harm come your way.
A mother will never do anything that will harm her child. She takes good care and meets all the needs of her child to keep him/her happy. She will never let her child down in front of others even if her child does any mistake. When an earthly mother cares for her child so dearly, how much more will your heavenly Father care for you.
I would like to share a true incident. A mother was holding her three month old baby in her arms. As she was very tired, she sat on the floor and kept the child on her lap. Being tired, she fell asleep. The baby from her lap, rolled down to the floor. The mother woke immediately, carried the child in her arms and thanked God for protecting the child from getting hurt in spite of her falling asleep. This is how God cares and protects you too. Your parents may provide you with all that you want. Even if they are not able to provide your needs, the God who created you, watches over you day and night, knows your needs and will provide for you accordingly.
Some of you might have lost your loved ones and may say, “There is no one to care for me, no one who loves me”. The Lord says in Psalms 121:4, “He never sleeps nor slumbers”. Jesus watches over you day and night. He will protect you as the apple of His eye. Do not be disheartened if you do not have your loved ones by your side. Call unto Jesus whenever you need a friend to talk to. He will listen to all your problems and will be with you wherever you go. Your happiness and well-being is precious to Him.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. I pray that You bless Your dear children and guide them in the way they should go. Be their father and mother and protect them in Your bosom. Be with them and guide them. In Jesus name we pray,
