“…Yet God Does Not Forget…”

god does not forget

by Dona Hake

Have you ever been forgotten?  Maybe there has been a time that you are walking through some rough circumstances and you just wished someone would inquire how you are doing.  I think we can all honestly say that we have walked through such times.  I have heard people speak at times when they are going through a very rough time and their words are revealing that they even wonder if God sees what they are walking through.

I think it would be wise for us to remind ourselves ALL the time how much God loves us and He is concerned about the smallest of details in our lives.  As we keep this fresh in our minds we will be strong in this truth as we walk through difficult times.

Luke 12:6-8  (NLT)

“What is the price of five sparrows—two copper coins?

Yet God does not forget a single one of them.

And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.

So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.”

I watch sparrows from my window everyday and to be quite honest they can be aggressive little things.  They are pushy with the other birds and they seem to want to take it all.  They almost seem to be perfect little analogies that just maybe they are afraid of where their next meal is coming from. When we get into fear of our future or we feel we are facing things alone, we too can act irrationally, pushy and try to work through things in our own ability.  God has His eye on the sparrow and He does not forget one of them.  Out of all the parts of our body the writer speaks of the hairs on our head.  When is the last time you tried to count the hairs on your head?  I would say that God is really keeping track of me if He has my hairs counted!

Let us be reminded that God knows and sees every detail of our life.  He sees your concerns and worries and as you look to Him, He will take care of you.  I just want you to remember that many times our prayers are answered differently than what we expected.  All is good in the hands of God!

Psalm 138:8 (KJV)

“The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy,

O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.”
