Today’s Devotional: “God Has Not Forgotten”
As we take this time on Veteran’s Day to remember those who have fought four our country to keep us a free nation, I thought about the word “remember,” and then how it applies to our lives as believers.
Remember is a powerful word. As believers in Jesus Christ, we’re commanded to remember the Lord and what He’s done for us.
The Psalmist said, “I will remember the works of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old.” (Psalm 77:11)
We also use the word “remember” when we ask God to remember His promises and help us in our time of need.
Samson’s prayed, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once” (Judges 16:28). And the thief on the cross said, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” (Luke 23:42)
But the most powerful use of the word “remember” is when God says that He remembers us, and His covenant promises towards us.
“Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing … (saying) ‘I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh … The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth’” (Genesis 8:1; 9:15-16)
God had just finished His judgment against humanity’s wickedness and the flood He sent upon the earth. And it says God remembered Noah and the creatures on the Ark and made a covenant with Noah never to destroy the earth again by way of a flood, and He set a rainbow in the sky to remind us of His promise.
No matter what we may be going through, whether it is feeling forgotten, down, and dejected, or whether we’re suffering from an illness or disease, what we need to remember is that God remembers His promises. Promises like He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5), or Jesus’s promise that He will be with us to the end (Matthew 28:20).
And so today remember that God remembers you and that He will be there for you through thick and thin.
