Unlimited: It’s Important to Remember
Sep 17, 2021 431
Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! (Isaiah 46:9, NLT).
It’s important to remember because remembering keeps our faith strong. God often tells us to remember, because he knows that we are prone to forget. Here are three things to remember that will help you get through tough times:
1. Remember who you are
In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith (Galatians 3:26).
We are not abandoned orphans. No matter how sad you may be, remember that you are a child of God. Your can trust your Father in heaven.
2. Remember who you belong to
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine (Isaiah 43:1).
You belong to God. You can only ever suffer as much as he allows, and he will always be right there with you in the midst of the storm.
It is important to remember, to keep your faith strong.
3. Remember where you are going
Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20).
Whatever you go through in this world is only a fleeting moment in the light of eternity. Remember that you belong to heaven and not to this world. Remember that you have a Saviour, and his name is Jesus.
This world is like an obstacle course that tries to make us forget. We are only safe when we remember Jesus. – Eliezer Gonzalez
