Genesis 8:1a – And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark:
Have you ever felt abandoned by God? Have you ever wondered if God has forgotten you? Have you ever felt as if your prayers were never going to be answered because it seemed like you have been waiting forever for God to answer them?
At one time or another in our walk with the Lord, we all have felt that God has forgotten us. We sometimes forget in our hour of need and desperation that God has us in the palm of His hand.
Well, just like Noah, God has remembered us too. He sees our tears, He sees our attempts to do what is right in His eyes, he sees our struggles and pains, He knows all about us and because He knows all about us, He declares that He has not forgotten us, but He has remembered us on today.
Oh what great peace and comfort the Lord gives us in knowing that He is indeed concerned about us and that He has not and will not ever forget us. God declares that He has imprinted us in the palm of His hands. We are in the palm of God’s hand and no one can pluck us out. No, God has not forgotten us on this morning.
Perhaps Noah felt forgotten by God. Perhaps you feel forgotten by God. If so, you are in good company because the greatest saints of old have felt the same way. The psalmist wrote of the “dark night of the soul” when he felt completely alone and abandoned by God. Psalm 42:9-10, “I say to God my Rock, ‘Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?’ My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, ‘Where is your God?’”
Though it appears that we suffer long and often feel forgotten, God, Our Father, will not abandon us. He declares it in His Word. He is concerned about us! As God remembered Noah, even so he will remember you and me. There is no trial so severe that it can separate us from the God who loves us.
There is a song that says “God Has Not Forgot!” – I want you to sing this song all day long. Get it in your Spirit and believe it. Keep it ringing in your head on today. Here are the words. God has not forgot, God has not forgot, If He said it, He will do it, it will come to pass, God has not forgot. Just keep on believing, God has not forgot, if He said it He would do it, God ha snot forgot about you, don’t be discouraged, God has not forgot, If He said it He will do it, It will come to pass.
REMEMBER, GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU!
TELL THE LORD THANK YOU FOR HIS CONSTANT REMEMBRANCE OF YOU AND YOUR SITUATION. THANK HIM THAT HE HAS KEPT YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS HANDS, EVEN IN WHAT APPEARED TO BE THE WORST STORM OF YOUR LIFE.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL ON TODAY!!! GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN US. HE HAS SPOKEN CONCERNING US!!!
TELL THE LORD THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR THE MIRACLE THAT HE HAS ALREADY PERFORMED ON OUR BEHALF THIS MORNING.
I love you all.
