In the middle of trial, confusion, or doubt, we might want to cry out to the Lord as Jesus did on the Cross, “Why have You forsaken me?” We might feel that we’re handling the circumstances alone, but this Scripture gives us merciful discernment into Yahweh’s heart for us. His thoughts toward us are not evil; they’re full of hope, faith, and peace.
The psalmist also wrote about Yahweh’s thoughts toward us: “The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us” (Ps. 115:12). “How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.” (Ps. 139:17-18).
We all encounter circumstances where we’re tempted to think that Yahweh has left us or no longer cares. But be encouraged that His thoughts for us are countless, and they’re filled with blessing, hope, peace, love, and purpose.
Where do you find yourself today? We all have doubts. It’s what we do with the doubts that get us into strife or not.

Me: Yes, I’ve had my fair share of doubts and wondered if Yahweh has left me. I always come back to His promises. He will never leave me nor forsake me.
Boom! Your turn.
