From a Creighton Student's Perspective

In Isaiah 49:8-15, God responds to the Israelites concerns and worries about being forsaken by him (even though he has continuously protected and provided for them). How similar this is to myself and my response to the Lord. Despite even the most incredible examples of grace and provision in my life, a singular event or a moment of difficulty can leave me paralyzed with the fear that the Lord (and everyone else) has surely forgotten about me. Just like the Israelites, my heart is a fickle one indeed. Thankfully, the Lord assures us that he will always be there for us. In Isaiah 49:15 he states, “Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.” What a powerful comparison, and what a powerful impact this can have in my own life if I allow it to! My prayer is that we would all allow this truth to be truly transformational in our lives and that we would call upon the Lord in prayer (Psalm 145:18) in both good times and “bad” times.
