November 4, Today’s thought – Remember

oct  28 010 I love the sunflowers in fall, also.

Good Morning

Psalm 77:10-13
And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High. I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

The concept of remembering is an important biblical theme.
The command not to forget is fiven more than four hundred times. We are to remember.

The wonders of God’s creation and works of His hands:

For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it? Deuteronomy 4:32

That the world belongs to God:

For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. Psalm 50:10-11

The deliverance of His people from captivity:

And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the Lord thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.Deuteronomy 5:15

The sacrificial gift of Jesus Christ on the cross:

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 1 Corinthians 11:25

Remembering keeps us from the sin of ingratitude.
It also helps us face the future with confidence.
from A Daybook of Grace

Today. . . have you remembered to remember?
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

  1. I have a sign on my kitchen bench that says “remember to say thank you” This is for a particular blessing I will always be grateful for.:)

    • I love the thought of being thankful/grateful; discontent and thankfulness can’t live together in the same heart. I know which fruit I want abiding in me.
