Remember ThisSeptember 23, 2013
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your doings; I muse on the work of Your hands. Psalm 143:5
Remember past breakthroughs. When King David wrote this psalm, he was meditating on the memorial stones in his life—meaningful realities to amplify his testimony and build courage into his system. Remembering your memorial stones means looking back and viewing your life in light of all the breakthroughs God has provided.
Remember the good report. Your breakthrough is either fueled or undermined by the things you choose to meditate on. When you deal with the phenomenal disruption of unexpected events, hurtful relationships, alarming symptoms, or personal disappointments or failures, take God’s grace and His Word and use them to build memorials in your life.
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
Remember what Jesus did. Jesus said to take Communion “in remembrance of Me” (Luke 22:19). Whenever you receive Communion, you are reminding both yourself and others that you have attached yourself to the one Person who is uniquely qualified to seek and save the lost. Because of Jesus, the debt load of sin is canceled. Through Jesus you have provision, healing for your body, and healing for your mind, your emotions, and your will.
The world is filled with weapons of mass distraction that try to pull our minds away from God’s faithfulness, God’s power, and how present He is to help. Resist the devil by taking a fresh stand. Get up every morning and boldly declare the good report over your day—that you are above only and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13) and you are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you (Romans 8:37).
God is faithful!
