"Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands."

"Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands." 
- Isaiah 49:16

No doubt a part of the wonder which is concentrated in the word "Behold," is excited by the unbelieving lamentation of the preceding sentence. 

Zion said, "The Lord hath forsaken me, and my God hath forgotten me." 
How amazed the divine mind seems to be at this wicked unbelief! What can be more astounding than the unfounded doubts and fears of God's favoured people? 
The Lord's loving word of rebuke should make us blush;
 he cries, "How can I have forgotten thee,
 when I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands?
 How darest thou doubt my constant remembrance,
 when the memorial is set upon my very flesh?"
 O unbelief, how strange a marvel thou art! 
We know not which most to wonder at, 
the faithfulness of God or the unbelief of his people.

 He keeps his promise a thousand times, and yet the next trial makes us doubt him. 
He never faileth; he is never a dry well; 
he is never as a setting sun, a passing meteor, 
or a melting vapour; and yet we are as continually vexed with anxieties, 
molested with suspicions, and disturbed with fears, 
as if our God were the mirage of the desert. 

"Behold," is a word intended to excite admiration. 
Here, indeed, we have a theme for marvelling. 
Heaven and earth may well be astonished that rebels should obtain so great a nearness to the heart of infinite love as to be written upon the palms of his hands. 

"I have graven thee.
"It does not say, "Thy name. " 
The name is there, but that is not all: "I have graven thee. "

 See the fulness of this! I have graven thy person, thine image,
 thy case, thy circumstances, thy sins, thy temptations, 
thy weaknesses, thy wants, thy works;
 I have graven thee, everything about thee, 
all that concerns thee; I have put thee altogether there. 
Wilt thou ever say again that thy God hath forsaken thee when he has graven thee upon his own palms? 

is to share the precious word of God,
without acquiring any MONETARY REWARD. 
God gave me the salvation for "FREE", 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way .. 
Blessings to all of You, rejoice in the sublime 
and infallible Word of God.  
 If you are NOT a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom. 
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
 I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
who died for me to make me free of sin, 
 I want Jesus to enter into my heart and make me free.
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand
 your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
 not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask. 
“The true minister of Christ knows that 
the true value of a sermon must lie, 
 not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”
