Remember, and forget not:  theunfetteredpreacher

Remember, and forget not:”  

Remember the times we have cherished.  The times we have triumphed.  The times we have  failed and floundered, tossed to and fro by the wicked trials of life.

Remember, and forget not:”

This is good advice.  

That from the day the Lord brought you out of darkness and into His marvelous light, we need to:

Remember, and forget not:”    Remember what?

How often have we  provoked, disappointed the Lord?  How often have we disregarded His will and ways? How often have we  gone our own way?

We all like sheep, and gone astry, we have all gone are own way.”

Our will, our way, now, today… 

Deuteronomy: 9:7

Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.”

They had manna, the Lords provision. Their clothes and shoes didn’t wear out.  All their needs were met daily.

Yet, they, “have been rebellious against the LORD.

That my friend appears to be the state of both the Natural and the Redeemed man.   Sad isn’t it?

The Lord has promised;  “He is our Shepard, we shall not want.”   Are we satisfied?   

No, we always want more.  How about you?

I long for more.  I long to be Holy, set apart, used of the Lord. I long to make a difference in the lives of the people I meet.

That they would experience Jesus, that they would be healed, body, soul and spirit.  That they would recognize the God of Power and Love.

I long to forget, the struggle to pay bills, to make ends meet, to satisfy my needs and wants.

Remember, and forget not:”

How often has repentance, turning back to God, being forgiven by God, been the theme of my life?

Why Lord, do You remember my sin no more?  How is it You died for me?  How Lord, do I ever love You enough, serve You in truth.  How do I become the man You desire me to be?


To obey, is better than sacrifice.

Lord, lead me on the road of righteouness.  May I walk with You, everyday of my life.  May You find me a “useful vessel,” of Your will.

Lord, forgive and use me please.

Amen

  1. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound. I once was lost, but now I’m found. Was blind but now I see. Our God is truly amazing! May your passion for Him spread like a wildfire…

  2. To everthing there is a season: a time to weep and a time to rejoice. Paul says rejoice always. Consider how the Father views you in Jesus: The Holy Spirit is within you, you are in Jesus, and Jesus is in the Father. He sees you always in your present future totally mature, powerful, being all you long to be and all your experiences are designed by our wise Coach to get you there. He’s never, never disappointed in you. He doesn’t want you to grovel in disgust of yourself before Him. He want you to say about yourself everything He has said you are. You are beautiful, delightful, a precious son of the Father. You are a shelter and a delicious spring to the weary and lost. You are a rescuer, a valiant warrior, a shepherd and priest of the King. When you are tempted to go on about your miserable lack of performance consider who that benefits and how it reflects on the Father. You cone down the light and you know how seasonal affective disorder feels when there is less light? Very SAD. The JOY of the Lord is our strength. May the words of our mouths and meditations of our hearts be acceptable to our Lord. Consider how to build each other, and yourself up. Let no unwholesome, unhealthy, dismal or discouraging word proceed from your mouth but only what is encouraging and builds up and strengthens and gives GRACE to the hearers. And you!♡♡♡
