9 … I the Lord have not forgotten my people.
14 …And I will show unto them that fight against my word and against my people, who are of the house of Israel, that I am God, and that I covenanted with Abraham that I would remember his seed forever.
I am wrestling right now to reconcile some principles in the scriptures. On their own, the principles make sense. But my wrestle is understanding how they work together in practice.
The point is, I recognize unabashedly that I am weak and don’t have a clear understanding of God’s ways. And I can’t look to other well intentioned interpretations to find my answers. Since the answers haven’t yet been clarified by God’s chosen prophets, my recourse is to continue to ask in faith and wait on the Lord.
So these verses above comfort me. They remind me that I don’t have to have all the answers to continue faithful. I just have to know that the Lord has not forgotten me in my weakness and my lack of understanding. I choose to follow Him. I have covenanted with Him. That makes me His. And He has promised that He won’t forget me.
So I can continue to study His word, pray for clarity, and wait on Him for understanding. It will all work out. It’s in His hands. I’m in His hands as long as I humble myself before Him and seek Him in faith.
