Forgetting God (Jeremiah 2:32)

Jeremiah 2:32

Can a virgin forget her ornaments,
or a bride her attire?
Yet my people have forgotten me
days without number.

So, you’re here, reading a Blog—a Blog by a pastor no less. It can’t be possible that the above verse has anything to do with us, can it?

It seems impossible that a bride would walk the aisle without dressing up. It seems crazy to think that she would simply forget to get dressed for the wedding, totally an impossible thought. Well, God says that it should be just as impossible for his people to forget him.

Do we? Do we live in this world and forget that we are under the watchful eye of a loving Father, a righteous Judge, an almighty Helper, a faithful friend? Do we forget that, even on the job, God is still our God and still totally our Master and our Sustainer? Do we slip into patterns that would make us look like people who have no God instead of being the people of God?

I certainly hope that, for you and for me, God would never be able to say that we have forgotten him. But I know that, if we are not careful, from moment to moment, we can lose our focus on the fact that He is the one by whom, through whom, and for whom we exist. Christians, put it before your eyes and in your mind this day that God is, and we are his.
