_Remember His marvelous work which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth._ *1 Chronicles 16:12*
Have you noticed that you tend to remember things you should forget? And then you forget the things you should remember. Sometimes you remember the line of an annoying advert on TV and catch yourself singing it out. Yet you forget the reference for that Bible verse you so love, or the birthday of your dear friend. It seems as if our minds tend to remember the wrong things and forget the good things.
God wants us to remember the good things. He wants us to remember the good things He’s done for us in the past. He wants us to remember His promises. He wants us to remember His power and the awesomeness of His deliverance. He wants us to keep His word in front of us all the time.
Why do we need to remember? Because we easily forget that our God is a mighty God. When that happens, we allow the enemy of our faith to bring the wrong things to our mind. Satan’s chief strategy against the children of God is to make us doubt the goodness of God. Our counter-strategy should be to remember God and His word always.
The Bible is a book that is filled with reminders. Not only that, it is a book that is filled with repetition. It tells us the same thing again and again and again, because we forget things. Jesus taught His disciples the same things over and over again.
Don’t get weary learning the same thing over and over again. The more you arm yourself with the word of God, the less access the enemy has to steal your joy and victory in Christ.
*Prayer:* _Lord, Your Word is my shield against the enemy. Help me fill my heart with Your Word._
*Scriptural Reading:* 1 Chronicles 16:7-18
On that day David first delivered this psalm into the hand of Asaph and his brethren, to thank the Lord:
Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!
Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!
Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,
O seed of Israel His servant, You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!
He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth.
Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations,
The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac,
And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant,
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan As the allotment of your inheritance,”
