Scripture For When You Feel Alone
by Dr. Jay Snell
Here is a Scripture that will build your faith to a fever pitch. Actually this is my wife Corky's favorite Scripture. She signs her name with this reference on every letter she writes.
She is very active in ministry. Over the years, she has answered so much mail. She has sent out thousands of letters. And all of them are signed with "In His Palms." Now see this powerful Scripture.
Isa 49:15-16 15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. 16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. (KJV)
Yes it is possible for mothers to forget their sucking child. But God will absolutely not forget us! He said above, "I will not forget thee!"
Then He said, "Behold I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands!" "Graven" translates a Hebrew word that means "to hack out" or "to cut in."
In other words, God "cut us in" the palms of His hands. He could have wrote our names In simple ink. But no! He "hacked us out" in the palms of His hands.
What a faith builder! No wonder Corky signs her letters with the expression, "In His Palms!"
Jesus said it again in the gospels.
Matt 28:20 20 I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (KJV)
Matt 18:20 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (KJV)
John 14:18 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. (KJV)
Remember this when you feel alone and rejected. God hacked you out on the palms of His hands. Remember this when even your best friend has turned on you. God cut you in the palms of His hands. Remember this when even that family member you counted on most has let you down. God hacked you out on the palms of His hands.
"I will not forget thee!" "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." "I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands!"
We are not alone. You are not alone. Jesus is always here.
