Sermon on Remember me Oh Lord

 "Remember Me, O Lord: Embracing God's Unfailing Care"

In the busyness of our lives, there's a profound longing within every heart - the yearning to be remembered, to know that someone cares deeply for us. But amidst the chaos of the world, there's One whose memory of us never fades, whose love never wanes. 

We explore the beautiful promise found in Isaiah 49:15-16, where God assures us, "Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you." As we delve into this passage, we'll uncover the depths of God's infinite care, the parallels to a mother's love, the assurance of divine protection, and the eternal covenant He offers. Let's discover the mark of God's unfailing memory etched in the palm of His hand.

I. God's Infinite Care: (Isaiah 49:15)

The prophet Isaiah, under divine inspiration, paints a vivid picture of God's infinite care in Isaiah 49:15. The question posed - "Can a woman forget her nursing child?" - emphasizes the deepest bonds of human love. 

Yet, God's care goes beyond even this. His love is boundless, and His compassion knows no limits. In this world of fleeting affections, God's unwavering care is a rock upon which we can anchor our souls.

II. Mothers and Their Love: (Isaiah 49:15) 

The imagery of a mother's love is woven into this passage in Isaiah 49:15. A mother's love is renowned for its gentleness and devotion. But God, in His divine care, compares His own love to that of a mother.

 He affirms that even if, by some unforeseen circumstance, a mother were to forget her child, His love for us remains unfailing. This comparison reminds us that God's love is the essence of nurturing, providing, and protecting, much like a mother's love.

III. Promise of Protection: (Isaiah 49:15)

God's unfailing memory extends to a promise of protection. Isaiah 49:15 conveys not only God's love but also His commitment to shield us. The image of a mother protecting her nursing child is a powerful symbol of God's care. 

Just as a mother would never allow harm to befall her child, God is our ultimate protector. In His memory, we find security. He watches over us, guarding us from harm, and guiding us along life's journey.

IV. Never Out of God's Mind: (Isaiah 49:15)

The assurance of God's unfailing memory brings us the profound comfort that we are never out of His mind. As busy as our lives may become, as complicated as the world may seem, God's attention is constantly on us. 

We are always in His thoughts. His unfailing memory reminds us that in times of joy and in moments of despair, in the heights of our victories, and in the depths of our struggles, we are perpetually on His heart.

V. The Everlasting Covenant: (Isaiah 49:15)

God's memory of us is inseparable from His everlasting covenant. The verse in Isaiah 49:15 continues, "Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands." This metaphor reveals a covenant, a permanent mark that identifies us as His own. 

Just as a brand signifies ownership, God's memory of us is an indelible seal of His commitment. It reassures us of His never-ending love and grace, unbroken by time or circumstance. We are marked as His beloved, embraced by an eternal covenant that nothing can erase.

VI. The Mark on the Hands of God: (Isaiah 49:16)

In Isaiah 49:16, God's unfailing memory is further illuminated through the imagery of His hands. He declares, "Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands." This imagery evokes the idea of scars, suggesting that our names and our identities are etched onto His hands. These marks signify the depth of His love and the permanence of His care. 

Even as Christ bore the scars in His hands, a testament to His love, God's memory of us is forever imprinted on His hands, a declaration of His unfailing commitment to our well-being.
