The Lord Will Not Forsake You

“Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.

The Lord will not forsake you
See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”  Isaiah 49:15-16

Are you rejoicing in the security we have in the Lord? Here’s some joyful promises from His word:

  • He is our shelter from the storms of life. Psalm 61:3
  • We can depend on Him – He has called us out of darkness and into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
  • The Lord comforts His people and has compassion on His afflicted ones. Isaiah 49:13
  • You can trust in His unfailing love. Psalm 52:8
  • The God of hope will fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him. Romans 15:13
  • His plans for us are good. Jeremiah 29:11
  • We have salvation and eternal life in Him. John 3:16

Once again, Scripture points us to the Lord’s love for us. “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:28-29 

Listen to the Lord’s word for us in Psalm 91:14-16,

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”



Thank you Lord for the secure grip of your nail-scarred hands. I am so grateful for your love and restoration. There is no greater love!

    I have always loved this verse. There have been times in my life when I have felt
    like my Mother had forgotten me. My earthly father did. But my heavenly Papa will
    NEVER forget me! What comfort what joy to know & believe that!
