Dear pastor/church leader
JESUS HAS NOT FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU!
You might feel forgotten…alone…abandoned…and maybe even like you once heard the voice of God…but for some reason, can’t hear it now…
You used to feel like you were close to Him…but ministry has taken away your intimacy/excitement/joy, and You feel like the One who called you is SO far away.
So you assume He’s forgotten you…sent you where you are basically to get you out of the way so that He can get to other “important” things.
You’ve prayed…you’ve read your Bible…you’ve fasted…and NOTHING.
So…the only “logical” conclusion is that He’s forgotten you and that you, for some reason, no longer matter.
NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
Isaiah 49:14-16 says,Yet Jerusalem, “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 birthed? 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. I WILL NOT FORGET YOU! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands…” (Emphasis mine)
You might be thinking right now that you have been forgotten for various reasons…
The critics seem to be getting louder…and maybe even more numerous.
You are not getting enough rest…and you really do feel like the key to getting His attention again is to DO MORE, WORK HARDER…and so you are desperately seeking His approval. (See Matthew 3:17)
You are not seeing the “success” that other ministries are seeing.
The “new idea” that you once had and were convinced that it was going to be successful was a miserable failure.
The enemy is real…and wants us to feel abandoned and alone!
But reality is this…if He called you then He WILL finish what He started!
He is still with you…and will NEVER leave you or forsake you!
I don’t know where you are…OR what you are going through…but HE DOES…and He will fill you with HIS Spirit and HIS strength and sustain you.
DO NOT give up on the God who hasn’t given up on you…even though you can FEEL that He’s with you…that doesn’t change the FACT that He’s there.
You’re not forgotten. If you are still breathing then He isn’t finished with you. The churches best days are ahead of her…not behind her…and He’s called you to be a part of it!!!
He has NOT forgotten you!
You must Preach the Word!
I want you to listen to 2 songs… Let the word of these two songs below
1. Encourage you and
2. Challenge you… To get up, shake off the dust from under your feet and get to work!
