These blessings ring all over Isaiah 54. As I was reading through this passage, God reminded me that I am NOT forgotten. Time and time again, I always find myself feeling like there’s still something I’ve missed out on. It’s so easy to get fixated on myself and think, “What about me God?!” During these moments, through the Scriptures, the Lord says to me, “Look at what I already have done for you.” It is in these times that I’m humbled and blown away by His blessings for me in the past and the present. The hard part though is trusting him for my future. Isaiah 54 calls us to sing, to not hold back, and to not be ashamed as the Lord reminds us, “…my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.”
When is the last time you’ve counted your blessings, listing down all the good things He has done for you? Have you given Him thanks for it all? Are you living in His great compassion or wallowing in what you don’t have? I become so focused on myself that I forget I am called to give myself to those around me. If He could be so sacrificial of His very own Son to die on the cross for me, who am I to ask Him, “What about me God?!” Then I am reminded that I am not forgotten. He has been at work, He is at work in us right now and He will continue to work in us! So, look up you who are low in Spirit and feel forgotten! Believe in what He has promised for you in Isaiah 54. His steadfast love will not depart from you. His covenant of peace will not be removed. He has great compassion over you! Take heart, you are not forgotten.
