God remembers, do we?

God remembers…do we?

Gen 8-11 “But God remembered Noah…” God never slumbers or sleeps, and He remembers! How’s our “remember-er?” Do we remember God as He remembers us? When you go through each day, do you stop and give Him the praise that He remembers, that is recalls who we are. “For he knows what we are made of; he realizes we are made of clay.” [Ps 103:14] And because of that, He knows our needs and wants, and He provides for each.

God remembered not just Noah but all the animals that were with him in the ark. Isn’t it interesting that God’s memory included not just Noah but the animals? That is, God remembered all of the animals, from the least to the greatest.

Principle: If God could do that, He would remember each of us from the smallest to the greatest. How gracious is our God!

Children often forget, but God never forgets. Take time to teach children that God has a super memory bank. Help them to take time to thank God that He remembers. Help them to recall His faithfulness, love, grace, mercy, and lovingkindness. For I am ever aware of your faithfulness, and your loyalty continually motivates me.” [Ps 26:3]

Principle: God’s remembering should motivate us to recall His many blessings.

Today, take time to help them remember and recite the prayer of Nehemiah: “remember me for good, O my God,” [Nehemiah 5:19] That will help them to focus on the good and not the “bad.”
