"I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands." (Isaiah 49:15-16)
When Moses was 80 years old, God called him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. I imagine after 40 years tending his father in-law's (Jethro) flocks, Moses was certain he'd never amount to anything more than a shepherd. Yet, after years of being an average joe, he was suddenly thrust into the lime light; taking his place in history; becoming the greatest Old Testament prophet, and "Friend of God".
Life has a way of making us feel like a forgotten nobody and of little importance. However, in the Divine plan, as long as we are breathing, God can still use us to perform mighty works. He knows every one of His children by name. He is closer than we think. Your name is inscribed upon His hands. He has not forgotten you. Jeremiah records God's sweet words.
"I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans not to harm you, but to give you hope and a future."
When our darkest days are upon us; our plans have gone awry, we can look up, believing. God has a better plan for us. Our source of strength, and powerful hope, is our trust in Christ Jesus.
Lord, we thank you for being intimately involved with each of our lives. Praise you for the special future you have for us all; on earth and then with you in heaven. I will continue to trust you, when fear or doubt attempts to steal my joy and peace. Thank you for the wonderful plan you have for me. In Jesus' name—Amen.
