Whereas you have been forsaken and hated with no one passing through, I will make you an everlasting pride, a joy from generation to generation.
Have you ever felt God has abandoned you? That He has forgotten your name? That you no longer matter to Him?
If so, take heart. This scripture is for you. Even from the first word, “whereas” this is meant to encourage you. “Whereas” carries a meaning of “being burdened, oppressed, in subjection or conquered; under the hand of.”
“You have been,” means “continue, be finished, be gone.” “Forsaken” is “to let alone, neglect, deserted.” Ever felt like that?
Good news! God promises to set in place a perpetual exaltation and rejoicing for you and your generations—for eternity. What a future to look forward to!
Oh Lord God! Thank You for Your promises
which are always in effect, and never go out of date.
They are the only constant truth to be had.
I rejoice in Your kindness and encouragement
which never fails and is new every morning.
