God Won’t Forget You

I will not forget you.
   —Isaiah 49:15

The prophet Isaiah asked, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?”

A Pennsylvania mom did. She dropped her two children off at school, drove away, and disappeared for eleven years. She made no effort to contact her children in those years.

“Though she may forget,” God said, “I will not forget you” (Is 49:15).

God determined your place and purpose before you were born: “Before I was born the Lord called me” (Is 49:1); “Before you were born I set you apart” (Jer 1:5); “[God] set me apart from birth” (Gal 1:5).

God doesn’t have another child like you. You are special to him. He will never forget you.

It’s your turn. Give to God what he cannot receive from anyone else—yourself.

He won’t forget you. Don’t forget him.
