Put God in Remembrance of His Word

While growing up, I often had to put my mother in remembrance of what she promised me after I finished a particular task.  I had to remind her of what she said because her hands were always full.  I know she had three other children, a husband, a dog, a house and a plethora of church activities that she was involved in.  So perhaps that’s why I had to gently remind her of what she said because she was so busy.

Later in life, I would tell people in particular my students to remind me of a conversation we had so I wouldn’t forget to make good on whatever the promise was e.g., grade change, etc., and they would.  Thus. I remembered and governed myself accordingly.  I did whatever I promised.  Simply, I wanted to keep my word for I believe that your word is still your bond.

“Put Me in remembrance, let us argue our case together; State your cause, that you may be proved right” Isaiah 43:26.  God wants us to remind Him of what happened and or what He said in His word concerning our life.  We are to argue our case together  as if we were in a debate team, following a structured argument and staying focused with what the other person had  previously stated.  Additionally, we are to state our case so that we can be proven to be right.  Basically, our God wants us to remind Him of what He said in His word concerning us.

So how do we remind Him?  He’s God!  He knows everything!  Beloved, we do it when we pray.  When we pray we literally put God in remembrance of His covenant with us.  We should always have a prayer book, prayer journal, and Bible with us for prayer help.  Now, this technique is not uncommon.  It’s one that I have adopted over the years.  Sometimes, I deviate from it but for the most part, I stick to it because it works.  Many people will use the Scripture Key Book, or the Concordance from their Bible or other prayer tools to help them pray and there’s nothing wrong with having tools in your prayer box.  I have often went down on bended knees with another resource that outlined the scriptures of healing, hope, strength, financial blessings, comfort, joy, deliverance, etc., and there’s nothing wrong with that particular method.

Thus, it is very important that as you mourn, you pray the word of God.  You must put God in remembrance of His word regarding what you are experiencing and going through at this time in your life.

Please take time out of your schedule and find a place where you can connect with God in prayer.  Make an appointment with Him and keep it!  Don’t cancel on Him.  And then pull up a chair and sit before our God at a table or bow down on bended knees with your prayer tools and talk to God.  Whatever posture you decide to pray in –just pray and put God in remembrance of His word.

Basically, you can begin with a song to calm and still your heart.  Next, read a scripture and then meditate on that particular scripture.  Finally, pray the word. Say Father God, your word declares that “weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning,” so I thank you for your joy.  For your word also declares that the “joy of the Lord is my strength.”  Again, I thank you that when I am weak you are strong.  For your strength is made perfect in my weakness.  God, your word also declares that you are “a strong tower and the righteous run in and they are safe.”

Pull out your tool box and pray what’s on your heart and what you are reading in the word of God.

Put God in remembrance of His word.  He promised us that He would never leave or forsake us so we need to put Him in remembrance of that word.  He promised that although weeping may endure for a night, that joy would come in the morning.  We need to put Him in remembrance of that word as well.  He also promised in His word that He is the God of all comfort.  Thus, we need to put Him in remembrance of that word so that we can be comforted in our distress.

Let God know that you know what He promised you in His word.  Put Him in remembrance that His word declares that “He is a covenant (both old and new testaments) keeping God” and that He keep His covenant throughout all the generations.

O covenant people, remind your God of what is written in His word!

Put Him in remembrance.
