......He has not forgotten you

   Sometimes we think God has forgotten us, when we call on him, and we get no reply, when situations arise and we think God has completely forsaken us, I was thinking about the same thing recently, I asked God why he would allow innocent students to be killed in their school by wicked Boko Haram people, I questioned why he was silent about every evil thing happening in the world: children dying in Syria, beggars everywhere, I questioned why I felt so far, distant and left alone by him., But he reassured him this morning with his words...... Isaiah 49:14-15

  Zion said, "The Lord has forsaken me, my Lord has forgotten me". Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?" Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.

And also Matt 6:25-34

  Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink or about your body, what you will wear, is not life more than body and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of your worrying add a single hour to your life?

 And why do you worry about clothes? See the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much clothe you- you of little faith? So do not worry saying "What shall we eat?" Or "what shall we drink?" Or "What shall we drink?" Or What shall we wear?" For the pagans run after these things and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

   So whatever you are going through in your life this moment, YES YOU!!! God's word speaks to us, believe it and see his blessings, Mercy , Grace and Favour manifest in your life. Amen
