Why is it so easy to forget God’s faithfulness? Life is going good and then suddenly something rocks our world, and we can’t remember His faithfulness, and we can’t see how it will ever get better. We’re not sure God can even get us through the crisis.
Scripture reminds us over and over to remember. Remember His faithfulness from the past.
Psalm 77:11-12 says, I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.
There are things we can do to remember His faithfulness, but one of the best ways is to go back to places that are spiritual markers in your journey. Places when God showed his power in your life when he was guiding you in a very clear way.
I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Psalm 77:12
Recently Wayne and I (it was during his birthday weekend)went back to several places that are markers on our spiritual journey. One of those places was on a hill, and we gathered stones and made a memorial right there. We prayed and remembered God’s faithfulness and His calling on our lives.
We prayed and asked God to continue to show us His faithfulness.
Another thing we can do is to begin our day thanking Him for what He has done but also for what He is going to do.
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1
God has a plan and a purpose for our lives, and we are here on this earth for a reason. If we are breathing, we still have something God wants us to accomplish.
Lastly, tell of His faithfulness. I know God has been faithful to me and I want to share it with other people. We can use our testimonies to encourage and strengthen other people.
This song was why I wrote this post because it reminds us that life is a journey. It’s not always easy, there are mountains and valleys but let’s choose to remember His faithfulness.
