Isaiah 49:15: Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you.
Earthly love is not constant. It may not last long. It dies when a relationship dies or when death happens. A mother is often so loved by her children and vice versa. She can never detach herself from her kids. God’s love is sometimes compared to our earthly parents, but His love is far more greater. It is an uncompromising and an unconditional love. A mother will not actually abandon or forget her children even if they hurt or harm her, but even if she forgets, God will never leave or abandon His children.
God’s love never changes. It remains the same throughout all ages. The scriptures say that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son and whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Such is the love of God. He never forgets His children. He never forgets His promises. His love is from eternity to eternity. Sometimes in our darkest moments, we think that God has forgotten us. In our failures and defeats, we think that we are alone. We kind of feel that everything is falling apart and that God is not listening to our prayer for help. Actually, God is with us through all the different kinds of ordeal. He says surely our earthly parents might forget for some reason, but God will never ever forget us.
For a mother, it is so hard to not love her child. How much harder it is for God to forget His children, especially the ones who love Him and work for Him amidst trials and persecution? Let God’s unfailing mercy and kindness always surround us.
