25 I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. 26 They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be a blessing. 27 Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. 28 For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed the offspring of the wicked will perish.
God has promised to never forsake His children. He’s always near, even when we go through moments or days where we feel we can’t sense His presence. We may ask, “Has God forgotten me?” Or we may wonder, “Is God aware of the suffering I’m going through?” The questions we ask are the beginning of getting the answers we seek. Jesus says, ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you (Matthew 7:7).
When God knows we are seeking to know Him better, He will honor our efforts by revealing Himself to us. As we try to understand how he is working in our lives, He won’t always tell us everything we want to know, but He will tell us exactly what He knows we need to know.
When you feel God has forgotten you, I encourage you to look up, because the heavens declare the glory of God (Psalm 19:1). We can be reminded of His faithfulness and sovereignty through the divine order of His creation. When you feel discouraged, look within to His Spirit that lives inside of you, because greater is He who lives in you than He who is in the world (1 John 4:4). He will replenish you with the strength you need to keep serving Him wholeheartedly.
