We live in the land of opportunity. Our cities are overpopulated but yet we feel alone, discouraged and deserted. Has God forgotten me? The children of Israel accused God of this very thing as recorded in (Isaiah 49:14).
Has God forgotten you? Let us examine the evidence. Notice the sparrow, two were sold for a farthing. If you bought four, they included a fifth for free. One could say the fifth one was valueless. However, God has not forgotten even one of them, not one has fallen to the ground without His knowledge. God even remembered the fifth sparrow and we are more valuable than a sparrow (Matt 10:29-31; Luke 12:6-7). Do you know how many hairs are on your head? God has numbered them (Matt 10:30). How many times have you sat down and stood up today? God knows (Psalm 139:2)! Have you ever kept a record of how many tears you have cried? God keeps a record (Psalm 56:8). Has God forgotten you?
The children of Israel accused God of forgetting them. God answered, “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands” (Isa. 49:16). One cannot forget something that is right in front of them in the palms of their hands. God has not forgotten you. You are recorded in the palms of His hands.
