When our children go through difficult times, we parents can’t get them off our minds. We pray for them, offer solicited and unsolicited advice, and analyze their situations. Our thoughts of them keep us awake. Our minds won’t rest for thoughts of scenarios, and our plans for solving their problems dance in our heads.
God’s children are always on His mind. The Israelites had become enslaved in Egypt. God heard their cries of pain. Exodus 2:24 says, “God heard their groaning and He remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.” God remembered them, which means His people and His plan to liberate them were constantly on His mind.
God’s plan of liberation continues to operate in the world through His Son. We are all bound by the slavery of sin. Even in our day, God remembers His promise to take away the sin of the world. God never forgets our struggles with sin or His Son’s struggle on the cross to free us all from the bondage of sin. The Father’s everlasting plan of salvation is always at work in the Son through the Spirit. There is never a moment that the Son is not on the mind of the Father. And never a time when we are not on the mind of the Son.
“Then you will be remembered by the Lord your God” (Numbers 10:9).
