God’s Promises to Mothers, Part 2: Attention

For You From The Word

Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? Never! But even if that were possible, I would not forget you! (Isaiah 45:15, NLT)

For You To Think About

In a beautiful word picture, the prophet Isaiah compares our Lord’s mindfulness of His people to the amazing bond between a mother and her newborn.

A mother or mother-to-be is specially tuned into the child she carries. The baby is always with her during pregnancy. She develops an overwhelming sense of nurture for this new life. A mother suffers on the baby’s behalf as she gives birth and then pours herself into the child as she nurses him.

Yet no matter how strong the tie between mother and baby, God offers an amazing promise: His bond to her is greater. The awareness of mother and her baby, though overwhelming, cannot compare with God’s attentiveness to His children.

This precious promise is especially comforting for mothers and mothers-to-be because they can relate to it. A child is never far from a mother’s heart. Yet God promises to be even closer and more attentive than that.

Just as a child may or may not sense his mother’s presence, a mother may or may not sense God with her. Yet He is still mindful of her and aware of her needs. He never forgets about her.

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for Your specific promises to mothers. Your bond to each of them is strong. It is impossible for you to forget mothers. Let them know Your attentive care this day.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
