Isaiah 49:16

 
"See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands."
Isaiah 49:16

Prior to this verse, God's people had complained, "The Lord has forsaken me, and my Lord has forgotten me." Things had not gone as they had imagined. It had been a time of God's provision, but it was also a time of refinement, and the people became discouraged.

Out of sheer love for each and every one of His own, the Lord responded to their disheartened feelings with heavenly reality. God reminds each individual follower who doubts His concern for them that their very name is engraved on the palms of His hands. His covenant is permanent. His commitment is forever. His love is unshakable.

Charles Spurgeon said it well: "If you will think of those hands of which the Lord says, 'I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands,' you may rest assured that nothing can come from those hands but what infinite Wisdom directs, and infinite Love has ordained. Rejoice then, O Christian, that God’s love does not fail in the furnace, but is as hot as the furnace, and hotter still."
