Powerful and Positive Negatives — God Does NOT Forget Us

 

Date : 2018-10-05
Speaker : Professor John Reim
Isaiah 49:14-16
(NIV)
14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
the Lord has forgotten me.”
15 “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!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.”

Hymn: TLH 534, st. 2,5: God of My Life, to Thee I Call

2. Friend of the friendless and the faint, 
Where should I lodge my deep complaint? 
Where but with Thee, whose open door 
Invites the helpless and the poor? 

5. Poor though I be, despised, forgot, 
Yet God, my God, forgets me not; 
And he is safe and must succeed 
For whom the Lord vouchsafes to plead.
