Please Don’t Forget!

Please Don’t Forget!


“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:”  Psalm 103:1-2

“Remember His marvelous works which He has done,
His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,” Psalm 105:5

“They forgot God their Savior,
Who had done great things in Egypt,” Psalm 106:21

“They soon forgot His works;” Psalm 106:13

Oh, how I love the Psalms! I feel I could never tire of reading them, of being comforted by God through them, of seeing His tender love and mercy in them, and on and on. Always new treasures it seems I find in them. When I pay heed to the Spirit of Christ teaching me as I go along. Like the day He brought to light this message.

About forgetting. About remembering. Why would the Lord tell us not to forget His works? Why would He tell us to remember them? That’s what He does in the verses above, right? And that’s not all! He through the psalmist shows us the Israelites after all the amazingly wonderful things the Lord had done for them forgot. Not just what He had done. They forgot Him. They reaped the rewards of God’s astoundingly awesome goodness and then neglected to glorify Him as Lord and continue to acknowledge His goodness.

Think they’re alone in this? What about you and me? Do we not if we’re honest with ourselves forget to acknowledge God at times? Forget to acknowledge His goodness sometimes? Forget all the stunningly beautiful and glorious things He’s done in our lives beginning with saving us from His wrath and hell and the lake of fire for those of us who have turned from our sins and believed in Jesus as Lord who died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead? Forget His goodness from even just hours ago? Take for granted His blessings like right down to the fact He gives us our very next breath?

The Lord is reminding us to love and honor Him, to praise and worship Him, to thank Him and to adore Him, to be consciously grateful for all that He has done and continues to do in our lives. Most of all, we need to be thankful to God that He is Lord!

So tragic, isn’t it, that we need this reminder. Yet the reality is in our humanness we tend to receive our blessings, to thank the Lord for them if we even do that, and to rush onward into the rest of our busy lives.

Let us take the time daily to praise the Lord, to remember His goodness, and to tell others about the Lord and His awesomeness!

Let us praise the Lord, friend, for who He is and all that He has done in our pasts, for all He is doing in our lives in the present, and, most of all, for the fact Jesus Christ is Lord forevermore!

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus?

Blessedness in Singleness

The single life for Christ is not for everyone. But for those of us it is for, the Lord will give us the strength we need, the love we desire, absolutely everything we need to walk day by day through this life without a human romantic companion, knowing there is no companion anyway that even comes close to the one who is forever. Than to Jesus. Than to Christ. Than to the Lord! AMEN!

Help Me to Love

Why do I pray this? Why am I sharing this with you? To love is not always so very easy. Sometimes it is so very hard. Sometimes it seems impossible. At times I have been so very mad at God because of my life’s challenges at the time, or because I didn’t get something I prayed for, that I had everything but love in my heart. I had everything but praise in my mind and my mouth. I missed love in my actions. Oh, how wrong I was to be mad at God! I needed to purify myself and love the Lord instead. With all my heart. As He commands us.

Three Must-Have’s for Us All

The Spirit of Christ put three words on my heart one day. Not just words. Must-have’s. Necessities. Vitally important ingredients to a forever relationship with God. Exceedingly important aspects of having a close, intimate, ever-growing personal relationship with Christ as Lord. Key elements of being God’s kids. Of being on the highway to heaven instead of the pathway to hell and the lake of fire. Fundamental components of living a life pleasing and honoring to God. Absolute necessities in receiving rewards in heaven for how we who follow Jesus have lived on this earth.
