FAITH CAPSULE: Have you forgotten the works of God?
Bless the name of God as same as Psalm 103:2 records, “Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.”
Blessing His name all the time and in all things is the evidence that one remembers Him. Forgetting what God has done or what He can do is enough to lead man into taking a route of sin.
The Israelites, after coming out of the bondage of Egypt, forgot what the Lord did for them and the Bible records, “They soon forgot His works; they did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tested God in the desert.” (Psalm 106:13-14) The Israelites overlooked; failed to recall; unable to remember; unable to call to mind what the Lord did for their salvation from the bondage of over four hundred years.
When there is a failure for a man not to remember where man is coming from, man is set to become lost and not arrive at the destination.
As a result of the truth that the Israelites could not remember the works of God, failure not to wait for the wonderful counsel of God took charge of their life.
By Israelites testimony, it is evident that a failure not to wait is a passage to become wasted in the journey of life. The Israelites did not only wasted but got lost exceedingly.
Have you forgotten the works of God?
Are you disregarding the hands of God in your life?
Isaiah 5:12-13 records, “The harp and the strings, the tambourine, and the flute, and wine are in their feasts; but they do not regard the work of the LORD, nor consider the operation of His hands. Therefore my people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge; their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.” When there is no regard to do the work of God as commanded by God, there will be no regret in doing what does not glorify His Name.
Also, not to have attention for what God has done will deny one from responding to what God is doing or what He can do.
It is iniquity not to give regard to God’s work or consider the operation of His hands because He is a Jealous God.
Will you give regard to the works of God?
Give regards to the works that God has done and the ones that He is doing.
Over your life, have you forgotten what God has done over your life?
In your life, are you burdened by not yet receive an answer to your prayer request from God?
Gain an understanding and know that it is not how long you have been waiting for your answer to your prayer request that matters, but give thanks, bless the Lord for how far He has brought you.
Prayer for today: Ask for a mindset to always remember and not disregard the works of God.
