God's Promises


Yet Jerusalem says, “The Lord has deserted us;
    the Lord has forgotten us.”
 “Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child?
    Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?
But even if that were possible,
    I would not forget you!   
See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.
    Always in my mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in ruins. 
 Soon your descendants will come back,
    and all who are trying to destroy you will go away. 
 Look around you and see,
    for all your children will come back to you.
As surely as I live,” says the Lord,
    “they will be like jewels or bridal ornaments for you to display.
 “Even the most desolate parts of your abandoned land
    will soon be crowded with your people.
Your enemies who enslaved you
    will be far away. 
 The generations born in exile will return and say,
    ‘We need more room! It’s crowded here!’  

Isaiah 49:14-20 NLT
