Do you ever write things on your hands so that you won’t forget them? Names… Phone numbers… Addresses… To dos… While our cell phones serve as our memory today, you still see people walking around with reminders written on their hands—the important things they don’t want to forget!
Do you know what God has written on his hands? Your name! Here’s his promise: “I have written your name on the palms of my hands” (Isaiah 49:16). What a cool thought! God won’t ever forget about us. He’s written our names on his hands! When you add the fact that in the middle of Jesus’ hands are the nail holes that held him to the cross as he died for our sins, we never need to doubt God’s love for us. Others may forget. We may forget. But God will never forget you. He’s written your hand on his hands!
