You Are Not Forgotten
Gen 46:2-3 During the night God spoke to him in a vision. "Jacob! Jacob!" he called. "Here I am," Jacob replied. "I am God, the God of your father," the voice said. "Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make your family into a great nation."
God was reassuring Jacob. Jacob had lost his beloved Rachel, he thought Joseph was dead, his sons had taken their youngest brother to the governor of Egypt and Jacob was now waiting for their return with food so they would not die. God had been quiet for along time, but He had not forgotten Jacob.
Have you experienced a long period of "silence" in your relationship with God? Perhaps you are feeling forgotten. The Bible is filled with the promise that God is with you and He has not forgotten you, so let's remind ourselves --
Jesus makes this promise to His disciples: John 14:16-17 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.
Heb 13:5 For God has said, "I will never fail you. I will never abandon you."
Deut 4:31 For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon you or destroy you or forget the solemn covenant he made with your ancestors.
