Have you ever noticed how often in Scripture God would encourage his people to remember? One example, is when the Israelites crossed the Jordan river into the promised land. God had them pick up twelve stones from the river bed and build a memorial to the miracle on the other side. The memorial was to remind them and their children of when God parted the Jordan River for them. What has God done in your life? Take some time to stop and write down a few examples. Start a gratitude journal. We are a forgetful people; God even gave us a regular weekly memorial. Jesus instituted a simple symbolic meal of bread and wine to help us remember his body and blood that was given for our sins. Take some time today and simply remember.
Under His Mercy,
