How often do we forget what God has done in our lives? He answers prayers and comes through for us time after time, and yet, we often forget about it just a few days later. At least, I do…
The Israelites had a strange way of remembering what God had done for them – they left huge piles of rocks all over the place.
They did this when God did something amazing for them, as a reminder of what he had done. Imagine an Israelite family going out for a picnic. The children get excited when they see a pile of rocks in the distance. “Dad, tell us the story of why that pile of rocks is there!” They already know the story of what God had done, but they couldn’t wait to hear it again.
So how can we remember the things that God has done for us. I’m guessing that most people can’t build their own rock towers all over town. But what can we do?
Write it down? Tell people about it?
This things are both great. But I think sometimes we mess up before we even get to this point.
We need to acknowledge what God has done in our lives. Really think about it, and I’m sure you will be surprised about what he has done. I know that I am, time and time again. How often he has come through for me, right at the last second, when I think that all hope has gone.
I really, really, really, want to get better at acknowledging God in my life, and thanking him for all he has done, even when times seem so hard.
He has saved me
He has loved me
He has used me
He will never let me go
Even when this is all I have to hold onto it is enough.
If all Jesus ever did was die for me, it is more than enough.
He has done so much more than that though, we just need to notice it, acknowledge it, thank him for it and remember it.
I want to ask you… What has God been doing in your life?
How do you remember all the ways God has come through for you?
