Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Isaiah 49:16
Heaven and earth may be well astonished that rebels should obtain such a nearness to the heart of infinite love as to be written upon the palms of His hands. “I have graven you.” It does not say, “I have graven your name.” The name is there, but that is not all; “I have graven you!” See the fullness of this! I have graven your person, your temptations, your weaknesses, your wants, your works; I have graven you, everything about you, all that concerns you; I have put you altogether there. Will you ever say again that your God has forsaken you when He has graven you upon His own palms?
