Re-remembering

The Ephraimites, armed to the teeth, ran off when the battle began. …They forgot what God had done—marvels He’d done right before their eyes. (Psalm 78:9, 11)

Forgetfulness breeds fear.

Even though the Israelites/ Ephraimites had seen what God had done for them, they forgot. And when they forgot, they ran away.

How do I keep re-remembering?

  • I keep “souvenirs” around me. Things that remind me of times God did miracles right before my eyes.
  • I keep telling and re-telling those God-moment stories. I tell them to myself and I tell them to my kids.

If you feel fearful, it may be because you have forgotten what God has done for you. If you want to win the battle you’re facing, keep re-remembering what God has done.

What are you going to do to keep re-remembering?

A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself. (Proverbs 11:17)

There are those who [generously] scatter abroad, and yet increase more; there are those who withhold more than is fitting or what is justly due, but it results only in want. (Proverbs 11:24)

The people curse him who holds back grain [when the public needs it], but a blessing [from God and man] is upon the head of him who sells it. (Proverbs 11:26)

Pretty straightforward…

If you want others to help you later, help others now.

If you want God to bless you later, bless others now.

If you want people to honor you later, be honorable now.

It will only come back to you IF you throw it first!
