Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and judgments of His mouth . . . (Ps 105:5)
The Lord is telling us to do something in this verse. He tells us to remember the goodness of God.
Remembering is of great consequence to God! That’s why He instructed the Israelites to pile up stones in places where He did mighty works on their behalf. That’s also why He instituted the many feasts that He wanted the Israelites to observe—so they wouldn’t forget Him and His mighty works on their behalf. It also motivated them to share their testimonies about God with their children and grandchildren whenever they passed these memorial stones and celebrated their feasts.
Remembering and meditating upon: 1) the attributes of the Lord; 2) the miracles and blessings we’ve received from Him; 3) His Word; and 4) God’s personality deepens our relationship with God, and nurtures our faith. It invigorates and galvanizes our faith!
David strengthened himself in the Lord by remembering all of the miracles that God had performed for David previously. (1 Sam 30:6)
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. (Psalm 37:3) We feed on His faithfulness by remembering and sharing testimonies of His power and greatness. This nurtures our faith and the faith of those around us.
That they may set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments . . . (Psalm 78:7 NKJV) This passage asks us to remember the works and wonders that God has performed for us in the past. We’re also prompted to live a Kingdom lifestyle. Jesus kept all of the commandments so that we wouldn’t need to be law-keepers, and we would have the privilege of living by grace through faith. (Eph 2:8)
Rejoice in your blessings, and remember God’s past supernatural acts on your behalf. You faith will be energized!
