A Mothers' Day Thought

My favorite Mothersí Day scripture is found in Isaiah 49:15-16. Here the Lord personifies His love for His people as a nursing mother.

ďCan a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands;Ē (KJV)

What an awesome expression of love. In its context, Israel is in captivity to her enemies as a result of her disobedience to God. And though she feels abandon and forgotten, God uses the prophet Isaiah to express His continued love and care for His people.

We often see Godís love expressed in scripture as that of a father or husband, but here we see a description of His love that is synonymous to mothers.

It has been said that when it comes to parents dealing with difficult children, a motherís love and patience far exceeds that of the father. Yet there comes a time when even mothers become exhausted and give up.
But God, in this passage of scripture has committed Himself to the faithful rearing, nurture and care of His people despite their inconsistencies and shortcomings. Though He chasten, He still loves.

Itís comforting to know that when life seems to be crashing in all around us; be it chastisement for sin, or suffering as a servant of Christ, we can crawl into the arms of a loving Father. For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus. Nothing and no one can separate us, or pluck us out of His hands. We are permanently and perpetually secure in His faithfulness to us.

Many times in the midst of failure, disobedience and distress, Iíve crawled into the arms of the Father via sincere and humble prayer. It is here that I experience His comforting and forgiving presence; the sweet smelling fragrance of His breath drying the tears from my eyes, reassuring me with memories of His past faithfulness with the promise of continued faithfulness of His love and care for me today and forever more.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
