My dear beloved, the Lord’s loving heart and embracing hands will never leave us. He proved it on the cross of Calvary. When he says I have engraved you He means it because He keeps His promise even when a thousand times we doubt Him.
Sadhu Sundar Singh, a servant of God when walking through the woods through the valley of the Himalayas, he felt he was all alone in this world. He had a heavy heart as even his parents abandoned him. He thought to himself, ‘If I die here deep in these woods, who will come to my aid? Who will come mourn for me?’ This thought kept him burdened when Jesus appeared to him and said, “Son, you are not alone. I have never left you; I am always there for you. Come, let’s have a talk.” Saying so, they both sat on a rock and Jesus showed him all the plans He had for him and encouraged Sadhu. From that moment onwards Sadhu’s life changed. He started doing his ministry even more vigorously.
Dear beloved. Even today we have the same hope. ‘The LORD Almighty is with us’ (Psalm 46:7). So, do not think that you are alone or abandoned by your family or friends. The Lord is with you. He is your mighty fortress (Psalm 46:11). He is mindful of you (Psalm 115:12). The Lord, who said, “I have engraved you on the palms of my hands” (Isaiah; 49:16) will never leave you nor forsake you.
I thank You for every promise that You have given me through the scriptures. Even when I doubt a thousand times Your promises will never fail. Thank You for a loving heart and embracing hand that has engraved me in Your palm. I believe that even when my family or friends have abandoned me You will never forsake me nor leave me alone. Thank You, Lord,
