And when, in time to come, your son asks you, what does this
You shall say to him, by strength of hand the Lord brought us out
from Egypt, from the house of bondage and bondmen.
And it shall be as a reminder upon your hand or as frontlets
between your eyes, for by a strong hand the Lord brought
us out of Egypt.
Out of all the miracles God performed this is the most talked about.
God has constantly reminded His people to remember what He did
at the Red Sea.
God delivered His people in a mighty way!
His people were called to remember what He did and He told them
to tell their kids. It is clear God didn’t want His people to forget.
The Red Sea moment was a reference point for the Israelite’s!
When they lost hope they would remember what God did for their
ancestors at the Red Sea, and in Egypt! We too are His people and
He is calling us to not forget!
How important is it to remember?
To answer that I would like to share something a friend shared
with me a few days ago,
“God is the God of the impossible.
Reasoning your way out of an impossible situation
is not as effective as reminding your way out of it! – Unknown
That stopped me cold in my tracks. How many times I have
tried to reason myself out of a situation. The more effective
way is to remember our way out of it!
That brings me so much peace right now because as I began
to think on it some more I realized God wants us to remember
the great things He has done for us. I believe
we all have our “Red Sea moments” that we can look back to for
strength! Don’t forget those times the Lord came through for
you! Those are the things He wants you to remember. He
performed those miracles so you could remember them when
your faith was been attacked!
As I think back on my life I see the small and the big things
God did for me and I know those are the “Red Sea moments”
God wants me to always remember!
When I am in doubt, when my faith is weak that is when I
need to remember!
Fight to remember! Write down what God did for you. Tell
people what God did for you!
When the storms come remember what you wrote. God’s
miracles in your life are not just for you but for your kids.
They are to be a testimony for generations to come!
How great it would be if your great great great kids could
talk about how God came through for you! How amazing it
would be if they used God’s miracles in your life as a reference
point for their own lives!
Last year is long gone but we are still here because God is with us!
He kept us with care! His hand is on us and we must make sure
we don’t forget!
Fight to remember the miracles, fight to remember the goodness
of God in your life. He is so good!
