Walking in faith is not an easy thing to do. There will be days you will get discouraged and doubt if
the Lord will come through for you. I have been learning to be patient as I wait on Him for my answer
to prayer but there have been days when believing is really hard. I had one of those days a few days ago.
As I brought my requests to Him thoughts of doubt flooded my mind. Will He really answer my prayers,
I thought. But as my mind was racing I began to think about the things He had done so far. I began to pull
out all the things He had already done for me. As I did that my faith began to increase. At the end of the
exercise my faith was restored. I was full of faith and AM still full of faith He will come though for me,
that He will answer my prayers.
And that got me thinking about how powerful remembrance is. We don’t give it the credit it deserves
but it is powerful.
“Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done, His marvels and the judgments from His mouth.”
1 Chronicles 16:12
There are so many scriptures on remembrance if you want to get deeper understanding. What I experienced
was the effect it had on me as I did it. It increased my faith. My hope was renewed. Because the fact of the
matter is that the Lord HAS done amazing things for me. In different seasons of my life when I needed a
breakthrough, when I was in chains, when I was in darkness, when I was desperate, He came and saved me,
He came and picked me up, He came and fought for me, He came and delivered me.
I know the Lord has done amazing things for you too. What you need to do though is remember those
things constantly. They will help you in really tough times. The only time remembrance doesn’t
work is if nothing has happened and as we all know, that is not possible. Yeshua is constantly doing
great things throughout our lives.
“If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them? you
shall not be afraid of them; you shall well remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to
1 Chronicles 16:12
As long as we live we will always be faced with giants and they come in different forms and sizes. But
we need to remember the giants that have come in the past which the Lord defeated! There are many
defeated foes. That will help you as you face the giants standing in your way now. That’s what David
“I, your servant, have killed both a lion and a bear! Goliath, the Philistine who is not circumcised, will be
like the lion or bear I killed. He will die because he has stood against the armies of the living God.
The Lord saved me from a lion and a bear. He will also save me from this Philistine.”
1 Samuel 17:36, 37
David remembered how the Lord delivered him from the lion and bear and and that is why I think he was
so confident when he went to face Goliath. He remembered how powerful the Lord was. We need to remember
the good things the Lord has done for us more frequently. Forgetfulness is a thief and we must not allow it to
Let’s ask the Lord to help us in this area.
Will you do something for me as I close? Write down the top ten things you think are amazing that the
Lord has done for you. Ten is the minimum. If you want to write more feel free to write more. The Lord
has done so much for us and there is so much He is about to do. Let’s not forget. Let’s always
remember the things He is doing because He is always doing.
Also feel free to share a few of the things He has done for you in the comments below. Your testimony
will bless someone!
Blessings to you friends…..
This came just in time. Praying God would help me excel in a major exam but doubt creeps in as I pray! I must REMEMBER all he has already done… and he isn’t finished yet. Thanks for sharing!
You welcome Tatiana. I am praying for success in your big exam. Even when the doubts come He is faithful and will be with you through it all. And you are right, He has so much more in store for you.
Blessing to you!
I decided to read your post before journaling. Now I even have more to journal about! Yes, remembering and even sharing our stories of God’s faithfulness deepens our faith and spreads His message!
That’s right Lynn! God has done amazing things for us and we will constantly remember them.
