"Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!”.(NLT) Isaiah 49: 15
Sadly, our world is drenched in so much evil causing us to be relatively insensitive to the words of this scripture (Isaiah 49:15). Indeed, no mother can naturally forget her newly born baby according to the principles of God. However, due to the amount of evil we experience daily, we see that it is possible that some mothers are able to do that. Some children also abandon their ageing parents after all that their parents have done for them and this tend to influence the thoughts and actions of other mothers. Both cases end up to affects our trust in God's words and His love for us. Accordingly, when scripture uses this analogy of mothers to describe God’s love for us, we tend to devalue it.
Dear reader, kindly take your mind from this devalued worldly standard and take a good look at your life so far. How have you survived from infancy up to your current age now? Did your mother have a part to play? I believe so, right from conception and so much more is GOD!!
In Psalm 139:13, Bible says God knitted us together in our mother’s womb. So even if our mothers decide to forget us (and some do), remember God will not because he made all the delicate, inner parts of us.
No matter your situation dear brother or sister, God has not forgotten you. It may look like he has abandoned you because of his temporal silence but He hasn’t. He has better plans for you (Jeremiah 29:11). If you would only wait a little longer, you will see his glory and his victorious right hand lifted in your life.
In Isaiah 62:3-4, a perfect example of our end as Christians is given in the case of Jerusalem. God says He will hold us for all to see, our names will be changed from Forsaken city to the city of God’s Delights. Beloved, we serve a covenant keeping God, so it beholds on us to trust in this covenant made with Him. The change of time, seasons and years may define it to be long but God sees it to be short and that’s what matters my friends!
