Morning Church, I got up feeling a little discouraged this morning and came across this verse in Isaiah 49:16
“Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.”
God has ME engraved upon the palm of His hand.
Now that will get your encourager started! God loves us more than we can ever comprehend. He loves us when we’re lovable and He loves us when we aren’t so lovable. He loves us despite all our faults and all the ugliness we humans display. If you back up a verse and read, the writer compares this love to a Mother nursing a child, would she forget that child? Not likely, but even if she did God will never forget you! Read past verse 16 and discover that God doesn’t just love us, He has our back! Read Romans 8 and discover NOTHING will separate us from that love!
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
Take comfort in the knowledge that God loves us and share His love today with someone who others have forgotten. Let them know that God made them in His image, in His likeness. God is just waiting to engrave them in His family journal, THE PALM OF HIS HAND.
