I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. ~Psalm 77:11
The older I’ve gotten, the more forgetful I’ve become . . . and the more reminders I need. It annoys me to no end that I’m so forgetful . . . and it’s often while I’m in the middle of trying to make some point!
Of even greater significance are the things the Lord has told me that I keep forgetting. Those promises He has to keep reminding me of . . . over, and over, and over again – especially when I’m being attacked by Satan.
But when in the thick of things, I am especially grateful when the Holy Spirit reminds me that . . .
The Lord goes before me and is also my Rear Guard (Ps. 139:5).
He is with me and for me, so who (or what) can prevail against me (Rom. 8:31).
Just like He was with Moses, Joshua, and all of His servants, He will not forsake me or fail me (Josh. 1:5).
Not only does He hold my hand (Isa. 41:13), He has also laid His hand upon me (Ps. 139:5).
That which He is working out in me and my life He shall be well-pleased with the finished result (Heb. 13:21).
The gifts He has deposited within me and the calling He has placed upon my life are irrevocable . . . irreversible . . . unchangeable . . . permanent (Rom. 11:29). And that’s never, ever going to change – no matter what!
When I become weary, if I’ll just wait on Him, He will renew my strength (Isa. 40:31).
In due season, I shall reap if I don’t quit (Gal. 6:9).
My labors in the Lord are not in vain (1 Cor. 15:58)!
His mercies are new every morning and won’t ever fail (Lam. 3:22-23).
Whatever I need at any given time, in any given situation, the Lord my God reminds me that . . . He, and He alone, is God (Ps. 86:10).
And after His gentle reminder, it is then that I bow in thanksgiving and worship, and say, “O LORD God, my Father, THANK YOU for reminding me . . . yet one more time!”
