October 12th – Isaiah 49:15

Isaiah 49:15

God’s Promise – “Even if your mother forgets you, I will never forget you.”

It is often said there no greater love than the love a mother feels for her child. Yet as Christians we know there is a greater love still, the love God has for everyone He calls His own. Because even though some are blessed with wonderful parents, others aren’t so lucky. And still others have no parents at all. And that’s why God’s love is so great it surpasses even a mother’s love. A love that calms every fear, nurses every hurt, and provides for our every need. Earthly parents are fallible. But not our Heavenly Father. When others reject us, He will not. When our own family forgets us, God never will. Psalm 27:10 reminds us, “Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.” For He has engraved us on the palms of His hands. And those who receive Jesus as their Savior will be forever loved by our Abba, Father. And if we have His love, we need no other!
