Has God Forgotten You?

"But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can 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; thy walls are continually before Me." (Isaiah 49:14-16)

It is impossible for "Zion" - the church - to say that God has forsaken or forgotten her.  Amidst her many calamities, afflictions, and trials...in times of oppression and distress...or when wickedness seems to triumph, she can be assured of one thing - God does care for her.  

Even though it is very difficult to think of a woman forgetting her sucking child, it can and may happen in some instances. How unthinkable for this to happen for this is the strongest attachment in nature.

Yet, the Prophet Isaiah presents such language in this passage to denote that the tie between God and His people is much stronger than that produced by natural relation. The Lord God boldly attests - "...yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee..." A mother may forget her child due to a lack of affection...a cruel disposition...a sickness...much business... or a public calamity. Sooner will she forget her child than God ever forget His afflicted and suffering people. It is impossible for Him to forget His love...His covenant...or His promises to them.

Besides His binding love, covenant, and promises, God gives two specific reasons why He cannot ever forget His people - "I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands" and "thy walls are continually before Me." These two images seek to signify that God always has His people in His sight. Amidst all their trials and disasters, He remembers them.  They are constantly under His care, and He is always looking out for their safety and protection.
