God is Always Cheering for You

Reading for the day:  Isaiah 49:15-16

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast

and have no compassion on the child she has born?

Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!

See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.”

The bible verse says that God has “engraved you on the palms of His hands.”  That’s a powerful image, very similar to a person tattooing the name of a loved one on his arm.  Imagine that, God has a constant reminder of you before His eyes for eternity!  Anyone who lovingly holds your name in the palm of his hand can’t help but be the ultimate cheerleader.  He loves you, wants what is best for you, and will always encourage you.

You may ask yourself how God could be your personal cheerleader, but if we accept God as our Heavenly Father, it is easy to understand how and why He would also cheer you on.  Think of a proud, loving father watching their toddler take his first few, halting steps.  That father is watching, silently encouraging the child and hoping that he will succeed.  After those first steps are accomplished, the father praises the child and envelopes him in a loving embrace.
Our walk with the Lord is like that.  We may stumble and fall the first few times, but God is watching us, cheering us on and ready to pick us up and hold us close when we fall.  He glows with satisfaction when we do the right thing, and encourages us to do the right thing when we are unsure.  Just like a parent on the sidelines cheering their child on toward victory, God is carefully watching you and cheering you on to be the best that you can be – because that is what He always wants for you.

Prayer Suggestion: Thank God for His constant support and the many ways He has encouraged you or cheered you on in your Christian walk.  Ask Him to continue to cheer for you even as you cheer others on in their journey with Him.
