I remember, when I was a teen, meeting this very attractive girl working at Dairy Queen. Of course, I threw on the charm, which must have worked because she wrote her phone number on the palm of my hand.
I used it to call her and we dated for a while.
I know quite a few people that have written something important on their palm, so it wouldn’t be forgotten.
The Lord has done the same thing.
Isa 49:15-16 I would not forget you! See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.
He met me and loved me!
He wrote my name on the palm of His hand so he would not forget me.
When that girl wrote her numbers down for me, I went home and wrote them on something more permanent, like my phone directory.
Likewise, the Lord has written my name in something more permanent – the Book of Life!
Rev 3:5 I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.
Abba Father, in Jesus name I praise You for not forgetting about me; for writing my name down in Your Book and for giving me salvation. YES&AMEN
