Starting Monday off with a message from God

 

In my quiet time on the porch this morning, I found this in Isaiah:

“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!  
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands,
your walls are ever before me.
Your sons hasten back
and those who laid you waste depart from you.”

 

— Isaiah 49:15-17

For those dads out there.  God has not forgotten you.  He will bring our sons and daughters back to us.  In the meantime, all of those walls they have built — God sees them.  He understands — and he is actively involved in helping us.

I had a link from that passage in my bible to another that I think takes it a step further:

“The Lord your God is with you,
He is mighty to save,
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his love
He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17

In my bible, I wrote that the rejoice line literally means that God will dance over us in the original language.  Must have heard that from a sermon somewhere.

Rest in the knowledge today that God is with you, and delights in you.  There is hope.
