Let Us Take it Personally

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us. Isaiah 26:12

What a difference it makes when we humans cease being general and become pointed and personal in our approach to God. We then come to see that all that God did was for each of us. It was for me that holy men spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. For me Christ died, and when He arose on the third day it was for me. When the promised Holy Spirit came it was to continue in me the work He had been doing for me, since the morning of the Creation. So, I have every right to claim all of the riches of the Godhead in mercy given. What a blessed thought—that an infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others. All that He is and all that He has done is for us and for all who share the common salvation.

God does forget his children

J. Hudson Taylor 90x115by J. Hudson Taylor

“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!” Isaiah 49:15

It is not difficult for me to remember that my little ones need breakfast in the morning, dinner at midday, and something before they go to bed at night. Indeed I could not forget it.

In the same way, I find it impossible to suppose that our heavenly Father is less tender or mindful than I am. I do not believe that our heavenly Father will ever forget His redeemed children.

I am a very poor father, but it is not my habit to forget my children.
God is a very, very good Father. It is not His habit to forget His children.

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you!” Isaiah 46:4

“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior!” Isaiah 43:1-3
