“We Always Need Reminding”
Isaiah 46:9 NLT
Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! I am God, and there is none like me.
It seems the older I get, the more things I need to remember. Usually they are things that I need to get done or want to accomplish. Whether this be at home, work or church, there are so many different tasks and other things that I need to be reminded to do.
At home, I have a routine list of chores to take care of each day and through the week. Then there are the projects I am trying to take care of. At work, I have responsibilities to take care of and remember all day long. That can get very exhausting if it’s a busy day! Then at church there are things to remember to do as well whatever the situation may be. Wherever I am, there are things I need to be reminded of. As you all will probably relate to and agree with, all the things we need to remember to do can be very mentally draining.
With all the things we try to remember to take care of, the most important thing we must always be mindful of is all that God has done in the past for us and all that He continues to do for us. How much effort do we put into remembering all that God has done? How often do we need reminded how amazing and wonderful He is and what He has done? Out of all we have to keep track of and remember each day, the most important is taking time to be mindful of our Awesome God and all that He has done.
As important as it is to keep in mind and remember our responsibilities each day at home, work, church and other places we go, we should never forget and always be reminded all that we have because of what God has done for us.
Maybe we need to set reminders around the house, in our vehicles or at work to remind us to praise God and to take time to remember His great sacrifice. There are so many options and ideas of ways to remind ourselves these days. Take advantage of these ways and get creative to set reminders. God loves when we take time to remember how great He is and spend time praising Him for all He has done and continues to do.
We always need reminding, don’t we? No matter what we do or where we go, we always need some kind of reminders. We need the same in our walk with God. We need daily reminders to keep us in step with Him and to never forget or take for granted how awesome He is!
Let us always be reminded!
