Topic: Remember That God Has Been Good To You [Monday September 25, 2017]
“Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;”(Psalms105:5 KJV)
It is God that satisfies your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like an eagle. Go and look for people who are of the same age grade with you, those who are not serving God, and compare yourself to them. Now, this is a practical thing; go and look at closely and then you look at yourself, you will be amazed at the goodness of God in your life. It is very important, therefore, that we constantly remember his kindness towards us. Consider this scripture:
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV) Remember the Lord thy God! He is the one that gives you the ability. It is not your expertise. He kept you alive to make it. Remember it because it will cause you to have a lifestyle of praise and thanksgiving. This is vitally important, more especially as we approach this fast; remember all that He has done for you, all the victories He gave to you, all the battles He fought on your behalf, this will help in building up your faith so that you can believe Him for the impossible. It will also help you pray from a point of thanksgiving, knowing that the God who did it in the past, will do it again, even much more.
In 2 Samuel 6:14-22, David was bringing back the ark of the Lord and he danced and rejoiced. And to the mockery of Michal, David had this to say: “And David said unto Michal, It was before the Lord, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel: therefore will I play before the Lord” (2 Samuel 6:21 KJV) David was saying in effect, there is nothing too outrageous to do for my God. Make a quality decision to approach the month of October with thanksgiving, God is good.
