2020-09-21 - How Could You Forget
Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember?" (Mark 8:17-18 NIV)
I am forgetful about certain things. There are many blogs and podcasts that offer techniques on how to remember and vitamins to boost your memory. I've never tried those, have you? For years, I have told myself I need a better system, so I remember where unpaid bills and prescription eyeglasses are. I have even lost items in the refrigerator, so I understand about being forgetful. I fail to recognize God's voice sometimes.
Even the disciples could not always grasp the significance of His miraculous power. (See Matthew 14:15-21.) Their brains saw things at face value instead of being spiritually minded. We, too, can miss or take for granted God's amazing protection, abilities, and resources. Our brains gloss over these facts as soon as a new crisis hits. That's when we need to remind ourselves how good the Lord is. In reality, we are to “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” (Psalm 46:10 NLT)
I plan to start keeping a praise journal, to document all the moments God protects and blesses me, as long as I can find where I put the journal!
Lord, Give my brain a boost so I never forget how mighty You are. It is so easy to get bogged down with this Earthly life. In the name of Jesus' I pray, Amen.
