“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits,” Ps. 103:2

How easy isn’t it to forget things?  Sometimes, for example, when circumstances want to pull you down, then you get to remind yourself.  Remember that Jesus lives in your heart if you are a child of God.  Remember past miracles and prayer answers.

“Therefore I will not be negligent to always remind you of these things, though you know them and are established in the truth that is present with you.” 2 Peter 1:12

 Even though we already know and are established in the truth, we need to be reminded.  As you read the Bible, you will be reminded.  When you hear a sermon, you will be reminded.  As you face a challenge, remind yourself of how the Lord has helped you and others in the past.  What we see and hear right now wants to take over in our lives.  But life with God is a walk in faith, a faith in what is not visible.  But, through faith, we can look to Him who is invisible (Heb. 11:27).  And one day in heaven, we shall see “face to face.” 1 Cor. 13:12

 The Apostle Peter was a revival preacher.  So, what did he preach?  

“I consider it right, as long as I live in this body, to stir you up by reminding you,” 2 Peter 1:13

 Peter preached the old truths.  It was the way he stirred up the believers, through reminding them

 Let us remind ourselves and our surrounding of Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Let’s talk about God’s grace, love and power.  And may it lead to transformed lives that glorify God.

 Don’t forget that Jesus is alive and that He loves you, despite what your circumstances are saying right now.

 God bless you.
