What To Remember

Key Verse

“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day” (Deuteronomy 8:18).

TEXT — Deuteronomy 8: 11-18


Charles Spurgeon said, “Let your memory treasure up everything about Christ which you have either felt, or known, or believed, and then let your fond affections hold Him fast for evermore”. Memory is a wonderful thing to possess if fully used positively. The positive way to use memory is to turn it heavenward so that, like Spurgeon said, our fond affections would hold God tight forever.

Moses knew he was about to die and was rightly concerned about the future of the Israelites in Canaan. As observed in the text, he was giving the Israelites the ground rules on how to handle situations that might come their way in the Promised Land. He expected them to prosper in the land and wanted them to remember that God made things to turn out well for them. He did not want them to allow success to get into their head and thereby, turn away from God, but to remember that He is the Source of their wealth and success.

The Bible is full of stories of people who forgot what they should have remembered. The butler forgot Joseph and King Ahasuerus forgot Mordecai. On several occasions, God had to send prophets to remind Israel of His goodness to them; “That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments” (Psalm 78:7).

As Christians, we must be in the habit of remembering the love and goodness of God. Failure to acknowledge God in times of prosperity is a mark of terrible ingratitude. Nothing must make believers to forget their Source of blessings. Our disposition should always be to give honour, glory and adoration to the Lord who alone sustains and keeps us by His grace.

Thought for the day

Whatever you forget in this life, remember God.
