3 Biblical Truths to Remember When You Feel Forgotten By God

How can God forget about me

If you’ve ever been in a tough situation and wondered…

“How Can God Forget About Me?”

I have the answer for you. God can not and will not forget about you.

Why?…

Because He created you, which means He wrote the book of your life at the moment of creation. Every detail of your life, God knows about.

So that creative idea you’re afraid to start working on, He knows about that. The desire in your heart that you’ve been carrying around for years, that you feel God hasn’t acknowledged, He is totally aware of that too.

He knows. God is our heavenly father, which means, He is our parent. He takes care of us, He knows what we need, and when we will need it.

He has provided for and protected us at times when we didn’t even know that we needed Him. That definitely doesn’t sound like a God who forgets about His children.

I think we need to make it a daily habit to remind ourselves of all the things God has done for us. God doesn’t forget about us, but we often forget about how He has made a way for us throughout our lives.

When we are able to recall the many blessings God has showered on us, we get into a mindframe of gratitude. Then gratitude opens the door to seeing life with a totally different perspective.

God’s abundance resides in our gratitude. There are so many possibilities, when we are just grateful for what we have.

Through that gratitude, we learn to be content in our circumstances (not to be confused with complacent), because we are 100% confident in who God is and His timing in our lives.

Here are a few Biblical truths to meditate on, when you feel like God has forgotten about you.

We are to think on positive things-

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:8-9)

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.

Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

Every good and perfect thing comes from God-

 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. (James 1:16-18)

So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.

There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.

God wants to give you the desires of your heart- 

Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. (Psalm 37: 4-5)

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
