Engraved!

“Can a mother forget the baby at her bosom and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! Behold! I have engraved you on the palms of My hands!” Isaiah 49:15-16

“Behold,” says infinite God, “I have engraved you on the palms of My hands!” Not on the mountains, as colossal as they are, for they shall depart; not on any page of nature’s vast volume, for the last fires shall scorch them; not on blazing sun, for it shall grow dim with age; not on glorious heavens, for they shall be folded together as a scroll.

But on . . . the hand which made the worlds, the hand which was transfixed on the cruel cross, the hand of infinite might and unmeasurable love; I have engraved you there! No corroding power can efface the writing, or obliterate your name!

You are Mine now, and Mine forever!

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you. I have summoned you by name–you are Mine!” Isaiah 43:1
