….he doesn’t want us to remember!


Hey friends!

Last week I talked about how YAH remembers us. Man will

forget but not YAH, we are always on His mind.

 

Today though, I would like to talk about the importance of

remembering all the good things YAH has done for us.

It’s easy to forget the amazing things He has done. We

underestimate just how easy it is to forget. I believe it’s one of

the strategies the enemy uses to keep us in a state of panic,

anxiety, fear, and unbelief. He wants us to stay in a state of

forgetfulness….

 

“Remember the wonders He has done, His miracles, and the 

judgements pronounced, you His servants, the descendants of 

Abraham, His chosen ones, the children of Jacob.” 

Psalm 105:5

 

We need to do everything we can to remember all the good things

He has done for us. Just the other day a friend and I talked about

this.

We then decided to write those things down and what a time we

had. Things kept coming to mind. The time flew as we penned

down the great and mighty miracles He had done for us individually.

I was encouraged after remembering the great things He had done.

 

“So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from 

the Israelites, one from each tribe and said to them. Go over before

the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each 

of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder according to the number

of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you. In the

future, when your children ask you, ‘what do these stones mean?

tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of

the covenant of the Lord.” 

Joshua 4:4-9

 

The stones were to be a reminder of a great work YAH had done

for His people. Like I said before, we need to do everything to

remember the miracles and works YAH has done in our lives.

 

We need to remember what YAH has done, when we are going

through challenges, tough times, and adversity.

When we are feeling overwhelmed.

When we are feeling discouraged.

Those are some of the times forgetfulness can creep in.

We need to be intentional about remembering. It doesn’t

happen automatically. The enemy is working overtime to

ensure we forget the amazing things YAH has done in our lives.

But we can’t forget.

We must remember!

Maybe it means you write down the things He has done in your

life or you create some sort of memorial in your house that helps

you remember. We must be creative friends.

Remembering what YAH has done is a weapon we can use

against the enemy’s lies. Remembering will break the fear,

the anxiety we have.

Let’s remember all the great things the Lord has done for us!

It really starts with me…!


 

It feels like I haven’t written for ever but it’s been just over a

week. I attended a children’s ministry training and a few days

later I went for a Children’s ministry camp. It’s been kids,

kids, and more kids and I love it. Camp was amazing. I know the

kids had fun but I enjoyed it just as much as they did.

A scripture has been on my heart ever since I got back.

 

“Yet you ask, Why does He reject it? Because the Lord was witness

[to the covenant made at your marriage] between you and the

wife

of your youth, against whom you were faithless. Yet she is your

companion and the wife of your covenant [made by your marriage

vows].

And did not God make [you and your wife] one [flesh]? Did not

One make you and preserve your spirit alive? And why [did God

make you two] one? Because He sought a godly  offspring [from

your union]. Therefore take heed to yourselves, and let no one

deal treacherously and be faithless to his wife of his youth.

Malachi 2:14, 15

 

I love this passage of scripture. In this passage we see how God

loves marriage. He created it. But there is something else. From

this passage we learn one of the reasons God created marriage.

 

“And why [did God make you two] one?

Because He sought a godly offspring [from your union]. “

Malachi 2:15

 

One of the reasons God brings two people together in marriage

is because He is seeking a godly offspring from their union!

Let me take it a step further, He already knows your

child and the plan He has for him or her! When God joins

two people together He is not just thinking about the two

people but He is thinking far ahead. He is thinking about thier

children and their children after them and so on! God has a plan

for your children. He loves them and He is thinking about them.

 

So, young man, don’t rush when it comes to choosing the woman

God has for you. There is so much more than meets the eye. He

wants to bless you and He wants to bless your children and thier

children after them. Young women, wait on God’s timing!

He is faithful.

 

“Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord [the only Lord].

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and]

heart and with your entire being and with all your might.

And these words which I am commanding you this day shall be

[first] in your [own] minds and hearts; [then]

 

You shall whet and sharpen them so as to make them penetrate,

and teach and impress them diligently upon the [minds and]

hearts of your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your

 house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and

when you rise up.

Deuteronomy 6:4-7

 

This verse ministered to me deeply. It starts with me, it starts with

you. God wants to work on you first so you will be able to teach your

kids. He wants His words to be lodged deep inside you first.

His words must first do thier work in you before they can impact

the next generation.

 

Young man, young woman, is the word first in your life?

Do you have a relationship with the Lord?

If yes, is it deep, is it growing?

Do you love the Lord?

Is He the most important thing in your life?

 

 

Like I said in the beginning, there is so much more to

marriage than meets the eye. Young man, God expects you

to lead your family but how will you lead if you have not

allowed the Lord to lead you?

 

The responsibility of teaching children the word of God lies

on the man. It’s your responsibility young man. It’s an

awesome responsibility and one not to be taken lightly.

Are you living your life in a way that will benefit your future

generation?

God sees generations when He looks at us. Let’s remember our

actions have a direct impact on the future generation!

Praise Him…..How??


I was reading my bible yesterday when I came across the most amazing scripture. God has created us to praise Him and I am sure you all have read a book or have been taught how to. I am qute confident you have the understanding on how to. But what I want to do is just add to that knowledge you have and how I am going to do that is copy what I wrote in my journal yesterday when I read the scripture.I truly believe it’s a significant scripture.
Hallelujah! 
You who serve God, praise God! 
Just to speak His name is praise! 
Just to remember God is a blessing – 
now and tomorrow and always.
Psalm 113: 1-3 (Message)
We were created to praise God. (Isaiah 43:21)
“Just to speak His name is praise”
(When I read this scripture yesterday I realised the power of His name. Just to SPEAK His name is praise! Whatever situation you facing you merely have to speak His name! What a wonderful and powerful thought!!!! Just to speak His name is praise.If you are confused, just speak His name. It doesn’t take 2 seconds to do but is so powerful. Speak His name constantly)!
– I need to speak His name as often as I can……
“Just to remember God is a blessing – now and tomorrow and always.”
– Remember Him and what He has done as much as I can. It is a blessing to me and it is blessing Him!
That is what I wrote in my journal yesterday. Let us praise the Lord. To speak His name is praise and to remember God is a blessing not just now, but tomorrow and ALWAYS…wow!     Amen.
