REMEMBERING GOD'S GOODNESS


Psalm 66:5-7 says, "Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people! He made a dry path through the Red Sea, and his people went across on foot. There we rejoiced in him. For by his great power he rules forever. He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance." David remembered what God had done in the past when God dried parts of the Red Sea to let the Israelites cross while the Egyptian armies and Pharaoh were pursuing them. God led the Israelites from slavery in Egypt to the promised land through the wilderness of Sanai. God did it miraculously. One of the ways for us to encourage ourselves and one another is to remember what God has done in our lives in the past. When we remember God's wonderful works in our lives, we can see God's power and faithfulness in our lives. Always remember that what God has done in the past, He can certainly do it again today and in the future.


One of the feasts that Jews celebrate today is the Passover. Millions of Jews all over the world celebrate this feast, which is about remembering how God rescued the Israelites from Egypt. God told Moses to put the blood of a lamb on their doorposts so that God would not kill their firstborn males in their homes. All of the firstborn males of the Egyptians died on that night, and Pharoah let the Israelites go that night (Exodus 11-12). The reason God wanted the Jews or Israelites to celebrate the Passover once a year was that He wanted them to remember what He had done in their lives so that when they faced difficulties, they would be encouraged that they had a God who could rescue them. In the same manner, it is important for us to remember what God has done in our lives in the past, like last year, last month, last week, or yesterday.


By remembering what God has done in our lives, we can be confident that God is faithful to take care of us because he has been taking care of us in the past. Hebrews 13:8 says, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever."


Questions for application: (Think through these questions carefully, meditate on them while answering them, and let the Spirit of God speak to you.) Why is it important to remember God's goodness in my life? Describe how God has been faithful in my life in the past? Why did God tell the Jews to celebrate the Passover once a year?


Write down all the worries you face today and lift them up to God.


Prayer:

Dear Father in Heaven, thank you for your faithfulness. You are always there for me. Please remind me about how you have helped and blessed me in the past because I believe that if you have taken care of me in the past, you will certainly take care of me now and in the future. I praise you for your goodness in my life. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
