It is almost funny how we forget. It is almost funny how we know, but act like we don’t know.
When you seem to be facing a road block, not being able to move forward, but you have enemies to face if you go backwards…why do you panic? Don’t you remember that the children of Israel were facing the big Red Sea in front, but their enemies were chasing from behind? Don’t you remember that God opened up the sea and sent them through and swallowed up their enemies? Did you forget that God makes a way out of no way?
When you feel like no one wants to be around you; you feel like an outcast; you don’t fit in, and people turn their noses up at you…why do you allow that to affect who you really are? Don’t you remember how the leper came to Jesus and worshipped Him, asking to be made clean? Don’t you know that lepers were outcast? Don’t you know that they had to yell out ‘’unclean’ as they approached others? Don’t you know they were rejected by society, having boils, scabs, and raw flesh, and they lived alone? But Jesus stretched out His hand and the leper was made clean. Did you forget that the Lord can change your situation, and no matter what anyone says or thinks about you, the Lord loves you and will make your life a testimony?
When you are feeling bound with addictions, bad relationships, anger, confusion and other life struggling issues, why do you begin to think you are hopeless and helpless? Don’t you remember the man in the country of the Gadarenes? Remember how he had been bound and chained, living in tombs; crying out day and night, cutting himself with stones? This man was bound; this man seemed hopeless; this man had so many unclean spirits, they called themselves ‘legion.’ But Jesus sent the unclean spirits out of the man and into the nearby swine. Did you forget that the Lord is a deliverer? Did you forget that He came to set captives free and He destroys yokes of bondage? Did you forget?
When you need provision, why do you fret? Don’t you remember when Peter came to Jesus about those who came to receive tribute money? Don’t you remember how Jesus sent him out to the sea, telling him to catch a fish and open his mouth…Jesus told him he would find a coin in the mouth of the fish to pay the ‘tribute money’ for them both. Did you forget that the Lord supplies our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus?
We could go on and on, but we will stop here with this….
The Lord has performed many miracles; He has set free, healed, delivered, restored and renewed; He has protected, provided for, and strengthened many…..
So don’t forget that God says, “For I am the Lord, and I change not:..”Malachi 3:6a
Don’t forget the Word says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Don’t forget that if He did it before, He’ll do it again. Don’t forget that the Lord is no respecter of persons.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
