God Like a Nursing Mother
Wes McAdams   -  

Jerusalem accused God of forgetting her. When we are struggling, it is easy to think God no longer thinks about us or loves us. However, God replies by relating himself to a mother who has nursed her children. God says that a mother is more likely to forget her child than he is to forget his people. First, that should change the way we think about God and his relationship to us. Second, it should elevate the way we think about motherhood. For the Lord, a mother is a picture of loyalty and faithfulness. Therefore, we must gratefully serve the Lord in response to his faithfulness, as well as imitate his faithfulness and loyalty within our families. (Scripture: Isaiah 49:13-16)
