I Remember

August 3, 2015

It appears, the more God does for us; the less we give Him thanks or remember what He have done for us or where He have brought us from. When God delivered the Israelites, they soon forgot God had delivered them and returned back to making idol gods, dancing and drinking.

When God blesses us, we should always remember. In the parable of the ten lepers, God healed all ten but one (1) came back to give Him thanks. Which category does we fall into? Some time ago, a good friend was struggling and I bought grocery for him and his family, loaned him money and helped him get his utilities back on. As soon as he gotten on his feet, I asked for one favor and that’s when the excuses started. Believe a person when they show you who they are. I don’t always like the way I am treated but I love people that do me wrong; because God lives in my heart.

I don’t remember everything but I certain remember the people that had my back when I needed someone to stand by me. People have made desperate vows to God during their time of difficulties. “If You will get me out of this, bless me with a job or deliver me; I will go to church, pay my tithes or serve You. God loves us so much that He blesses us, answer our prayers and we soon forget the promises we made.

I also remember, one day, I was lost in a world of sin, but God reached down a saved a wretch like me. I was unfit to live and unfit to die, but He said ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness’. (2 Corinthians 12:9) When I was born in sin and shaped in iniquity, He died just for me. When I couldn’t see any way out of my situation, He made a way. When I was bound in chains, He broke the chains and set me free. When I hear Amazing Grace and Oh Happy Day, my heart rejoices because both of these songs represent me. When I cried out to Him, He freed my little soul. He has made all my crooked ways straight and turned my hills into plains. I remember that morning when the Roman soldiers nailed Him to a rugged cross, pierced Him in His side and how He hung there and died for us to live with Him in paradise.

In the Scriptures, Peter is calling us to remember. “For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.  Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease”. (2 Peter 1:12, 15) 

Prayer: Father, help us to remember Your goodness, mercy and patience. When we were lost in a world of sin, You saved us. Bless us to continue looking unto the Hill from whence all our help cometh. Help us to keep our minds and hearts focused on You. Father, we thank You for being God alone. Amen.
