These are stories I remember hearing over and over growing up. They were part of our own version of Psalm 136, which recounts God’s faithfulness to Israel and repeatedly affirms the truth that His love endures forever. We need to take the time to remember and tell each other about the epic faithfulness our Father God has shown us. Remembering how good God has been and how far He has brought us strengthens our resolve to stay the course to the end. However, looking back is only a good idea if we keep it brief – whether we are changing lanes on the freeway or remembering the way things were. In order to keep moving forward, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus and He is always out front! His word to us is always, “Come, follow Me!”
Father, please help us remember all the good things You’ve done on our behalf. Please give us courage to follow Your lead, even into unfamiliar territory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2 Corinthians 2:14
