Remember

“Remember the wonders he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced”
(1 Chronicles 16:12)

Reflection:
God’s people have been called to remember the great things that He has done for them. Some of these are recalled in the great feasts of the Israelites that celebrate, amongst others, the Passover, the Exodus and the Giving of the Law of the Covenant at Sinai.

The Christian Church celebrates the Birth of Jesus, His Death, Resurrection and Ascension, and the Day of Pentecost as major events that need to be remembered and for which we honour God. In addition, when He celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples, Jesus made it clear that they were to continue to remember Him the same way.

In each of our lives there will be moments where God has intervened and/or revealed Himself or a new truth to us. These are incredibly special and personal events that must not be forgotten or taken for granted. Our great God has recognised and loved us as individuals. When we remember them and rejoice over them again our faith is strengthened and our relationship with the Lord affirmed.

We benefit ourselves so much when we remember our own journey of faith with God. Go back as far as you can in your life and journey slowly forward again – making notes as you do. Ask and allow Him to remind you of the special times when He has reached out to you or responded to you or drawn your attention to something that He has done. Recall the Scripture verses that have been special and helpful, relive the moments of beauty and wonder, recognise His hand in the pain and fear, and acknowledge where He has saved, helped, forgiven and blessed you – in fact everything that He has done.

Response:
“What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:4)

Prayer:

Dear God, thank You so  much for being a part of my life – for loving and caring for me every step of the way – and for the way that You have revealed Yourself and Your beauty to me. As little as I can I want to say ‘I love and trust You Father’. Bless You. Amen.
