“For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.”(Ps 9:18)
Forgotten– to cease or fail to remember.
By the time Gabriel came to Zacharias (Luke 1:18) Zacharias had lost all expectation of having a child; he thought he was old and God had forgotten about his prayer request. The angel assured him that his prayer has been heard.
At times when we are temporarily overlooked, disappointed and frustrated we tend to start feeling forgotten, and after waiting a long time on the promises of God. We become discouraged we believe that God has forgotten us.
The truth is God is not unjust to forget us and He will never leave us or forsake us(Heb 13:5) The promises of God are yes and amen.( 2 Cor 1:20)
Beloved, let us hope in the Lord knowing that we are not forgotten, and our expectations will not perish.
