Remember Not to Forget
weekly devotions to refresh your soul by Dr. Dan Bolin - February 7, 2023
Remembering and keeping one’s focus on God’s unchangeable character and His eternal faithfulness becomes one of our greatest resources for courage and the faithfulness we need to go on even when things seem their blackest. - J. Hampton Keathley
I may be the exception, but I always liked it when my dad pulled the car off the road to read another historical marker. I learned all sorts of interesting facts and felt a connection with the people and stories memorialized there.
We easily forget. So, these informative reminders are strategically placed to help us remember significant people and events from days of old.
God wants us to remember the important moments where He demonstrated His power, protection, and love. But we easily forget.
The children of Israel were commanded to erect a pile of rocks on the banks of the Jordan River to remind them of God’s power, protection, and love. And He wants us to establish memorials that direct our thoughts to Him, remembering who He is and what He has done.
David was forgetful. But on a good day he wrote, “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.” (Psalm 103:2)
Start each day thanking God for what he did for you the day before. Periodically, take time to reflect on answered prayers. Establish your own spiritual “historical markers” and forget not God’s power, protection, and love.
