I Shall Remember

I  Shall Remember

In times  of seemingly  unending troubles  the hearts  of God’s children  groan  in agony.     It just feels like  God Almighty  has rejected us  forever.     We wonder  if  or when  the LORD will be kind  to us again.

The psalmist,  Asaph,  wondered the same things.     His prayers  cried out  to God  without giving up.     Then  with hope  he wrote  in Psalm 77:11-12,

I shall remember  the deeds  of the LORD;
Surely  I will remember  Your wonders  of old.
I will meditate  on all  Your work,
And muse  on Your deeds.

Asaph refused  to give up  on the LORD’s love,  righteousness,  and merciful salvation.     He knew  very well  that God’s love  is eternal  and that the LORD  is righteous  in all  that He allows.     God knows how  to lead everything  for the good  of His children  in the end.     Surely,  God’s children  have had  to suffer many things  during their lifetimes.

When Israel  was having all sorts  of difficulties  in their battles  with the enemy,  the sons of Korah wrote Psalm 44.     In verse 22,  they said  to God,

But  for Your sake  we are killed  all day long;
We are considered  as sheep  to be slaughtered.

The sons  of Korah knew  that God was aware  of their troubles  and had a plan,  so they boldly prayed on,  asking for God’s help.     The important thing  for them  —  and for us today  —  is that we  remember  the deeds  of the LORD”.     Without a doubt,  God has proven  His almighty power  to do all things.     Nothing is impossible  for God  —  and all things are possible  for Him.

When we are sorely tested,  our job  is to  “remember”.     We are  to  “remember”  all the biblical accounts  of God’s children  of faith  —  “remember”  the wonders  of God’s power  in His creation  —  “remember”  how God fulfilled  all of His promises  of a Savior  from sin  —  and  “remember”  the blessings  we have received  in our lifetimes.

All of these remembrances  work  to assure us  of God’s love  and the truthfulness  of His eternal word.     Our memories,  in and of themselves,  are a miraculous bit  of God’s creation  for our good.     So,  let’s use them.

Thankful  for God’s faithfulness,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  in all  of our troubles,  it is good  to remember  Your sacrificial love  on the cross.     Your love  did all things  for us.”

Love,
Margaret
