Remembering

I left Bible study recently just completely in awe of Who God is and of what He’d done in the ladies’ lives. I could hardly think of anything else on my drive home. My mind was fixed on what an awesome God we serve. It was so incredibly evident that what happened that night was not of my doing and only of His. We all knew it, and I think we all left amazed.

Deuteronomy 8:2
“You shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.”

Deuteronomy 8:2-3 is a reminder for the Israelites to remember what the Lord has done for them in the desert and of how the Lord rescued them from slavery. After the parting of the Red Sea and surviving on manna from Heaven, one would think that would be difficult to forget! Yet the Israelites needed to be told to remember!

I think we need to remember what the Lord has done in our own lives as well. What better way to do that than by sharing what the Lord has done in your life? It’s so encouraging to be reminded of how God is working in the lives of others. In our Bible study, women simply shared what God had done in their lives and what Scriptures He used in the process. They simply were remembering how the Lord worked in their own lives and sharing that with others. We all left encouraged.

What has the Lord done in your life? Do you think that would be encouraging for someone else to hear? Or perhaps you need to hear about the Lord working in someone else’s life. I pray you could be so encouraged today by remembering what the Lord has done. And also, that you could be an encouragement to others, proclaiming what the Lord has done in your own life. Amen!
