Forgetting and Remembering

Diary entry

Ps. 106-108 As the psalmist reminded us yesterday in Ps 103 we have short memories. It is like that part of our brain goes to sleep and forgets the blessings God has bestowed upon us. Today’s reading is continuing that same theme.

Ps 106:7 they failed to remember (His many acts of love)…is this true of you and I as well?

Ps 106:13 they quickly forgot (what He had done)…are we guilty of this as well?

Ps 106:21 they forgot God their Savior…”OUCH

But it gets worse: vs 24-25 they despised, they believed not, they murmured,

The Holy Spirit is given to us as a teacher. And as our resident teacher, He nudges our memory bank. He brings to our memory what God has done so we might give praise to God. He recalls to our memory the wonderful works God has done. Where today do you and I need to not just remember but also to recall and give God praise?

Perhaps you need a helpful nudge to remember. Try journaling. Try writing where God has blessed you this day and the day before.
