Do you ever forget things? Boy, I do. Just today I was supposed to get back to one of our secretaries and let her know if I needed her to order more candy (It was for the kids, no really.). I forgot. Did I mention that I get sidetracked easily? Wait, what was I talking about? Oh, I remember now. So, what do you use to help you remember things? Maybe you use To-Do-Lists, reminders on your electronic devices, sticky notes or have someone remind you. Maybe you have an app for that. Maybe you leave a voice mail at your home from your workplace or vice versa. Whatever works, right?
Out of all the things you could forget, don’t forget how good God is and all that he has done for you. Remember, remember, remember. As we look at Psalm 103, it reminds us of what God has done for us and His awesome love for us. Verses 3 through 7 list things He has done and does for us. He forgives, He heals, He redeems, He crowns, He satisfies, He renews, He works and He makes himself known like in the verses that follow. Verses 8 through 19 reveal some of what God is like emphasizing His love and compassion. Look at verses 8, 11, 13, and 17.
In all the busyness of life, don’t forget all God has done and His great love for you. When those trying, difficult, hard times come, don’t forget all that God has done and His great love for you. When all is going well, don’t forget all God has done and His great love for you. Verses 20 through 22 tell us what our response should be. “Praise the Lord.” So today be reminded of God’s goodness and love and praise Him. Don’t forget! Now where did I put that….
