In the Palm of His Hand

See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.

(Isaiah 49:16 NIV)

Have you ever written something important on the palm of your hand so you wouldn’t forget about it? Maybe not so much today because we can get our devices to remind us. But today’s Bible verse, which was written thousands of years ago, tells us that God has not forgotten about us; He has our names engraved on the palm of His hand. In fact, just in the preceding few verses, it says:

But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.”

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” (vv.14-15)

While the Israelites were questioning God’s love for them and saying He had forgotten about them, He reminded them that He would never do that.

Your King hasn’t forgotten about you either. He loves you, you matter to Him and He is coming to deliver you from whatever it is that you’re currently going through. He remembers, He cares, Salvation is here!

God has you in the palm of His hand.
