God Has not Forgotten

Divider

But God remembered.

Genesis 8:1


Have you ever had a time in your life when you felt like God has forgotten you? Perhaps you’ve lived a faithful life before the Lord and suddenly things have fallen apart. Sometimes it could be trial with an enormous impact and disruption to your life. You’re looking at all the broken pieces and wondering “Has God forgotten me?”

It’s a temptation that will visit all of us at some point in time. We will feel abandoned because the plans we had for our lives didn’t work out the way we thought they would. We sense hopelessness because if we got this situation wrong, we might get every situation wrong afterwards as well. We can feel loneliness as others are perplexed by our sudden loss and confusion.

However, it’s important that we turn our eyes to heaven and know that God has not forgotten us. We may not sense His presence as keenly as we remembered in the past, yet we hold onto His word in spite of our pain and circumstances. When we feel tempted to believe that God has forgotten our faithfulness to Him, to our families, and to our church ministry, we must also speak truth to ourselves about what we have seen God do in the past.

Noah’s journey could be told in a few minutes. However, there were long periods of time for him to build the ark, gather enough food for the family and the animals, take in the animals, wait inside the ark for seven days before the rain fell for 40 days and nights, and wait even longer for the water to subside before they could safely exit the ark.

But God remembered Noah. God remembers us. He will do a greater work in us as we put our trust in Him regardless of our life circumstances.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I know that You remember me in my time of suffering. Strengthen me according to Your word. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
