God Has Us Written In His Hand.

Have you ever written anything in your hand? I have and you probably have as well. You do it because you don’t have any paper and you need to remember what someone said. Well, God told Israel He would write them in the palm of His hand. That meant God loved them. God cared for them.

In Isaiah 49 the Bible says, “Yet Jerusalem[f] says, “The Lord has deserted us; the Lord has forgotten us.”

But the Lord responds and reminds Israel, “Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!”

So God is assuring Israel that He had not forgotten them.

Then the Lord says, “See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands. Always in my mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in ruins.”

God has written the whole world in the palm of His hand. That tells us that God loves us. God cares for us. You may think God has deserted you…God has forgotten about you. But that’s not true. God loves us and has not forgotten about us.

A children’s song goes;

“He’s got the whole world in His hand;

He’s got the whole world in His hand,

He’s got the whole world in His hand,

He’s got the whole world in His hand.”

Then, the song adds, “He’s got you and me brother in His hand…”.

God loves us. He’s got us written in the palm of His hand.
