Will We Remember?

Will We Remember?

by Kimberley Payne

Will-You-Remember---Kimberley-Payne

And now, O Lord our God, who hast brought Thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast made Thee a name, as at this day (Daniel 9:15, NIV).

In the Bible, we see that Daniel was a righteous man who prayed regularly to God. He spent time reading the scriptures and talking with God. He knew that God kept His promises and fulfilled prophecies.

When Daniel prayed, he reminded God of the
mighty acts He’d performed.

Has God moved in your life with answered prayer? When you pray, do you rehearse the great acts that God has performed in the past as you ask for His intervention in the present?

Next time you make a request in prayer, start by recalling all that God has done in the past. Include His miracles from the Bible as well as from your own life.

Praying with a memory will help grow your faith.

Prayer:

Dear God, please remind me to lift my friends and family, my circumstances and questions to You in prayer when I see certain objects throughout my day. In Jesus name, I pray.

Do you rehearse the great acts that God has performed in your life when you pray? (tweet this)

FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY – Remember

Five Minute Friday – a day late – REMEMBER

Finished Tadeo Turtle puppet

Remembered but too busy having fun.

No I did not forget to write on Friday – I just got into so much more that I never had time to write FMF.  I love making connections with others and sometimes I get carried away and forget the time. I know that I should be stopping but it is so much fun meeting and reading the posts of others.

This week I have met so many new friends. And on Wednesday’s Word we have had so many wonderful links with God’s Word. I have found other linking parties – so then I went visiting.

Then I made a craft for Saturday – a Tadeo Turtle Puppet – that was so much fun. Now I am planning for next Saturday.

So remember I did – but no time. So what I have to say about remember today will be this.

1. I am learning to memorize Scripture – it is working. I want to do a video one day but being a perfectionist – it is hard to put something up that is not perfect. Grrr. So either I have to stop working towards perfection or I have to work harder at my memory work.

2. I remember that Jesus is the “author and perfecter of my faith” and that is most important.

3. I remember that my “job” is to glorify God in all I do. And that is what I am trying to do.

Time is up – way up – late and time to post.

Time’s up. What do you think of when you think of the word REMEMBER?

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog footer}
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minute artist who linked up before you {and if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to say howdy}

It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.

WEDNESDAY’S WORD – Obey

Wednesday’s Word – OBEY

Sometimes I feel like I am stretched to the last ounce of my strength and time. So how can I do all the things that I think God has put before me?

Then He shows me:

Trust me enough to spend ample time with me and I will give you time. “I am able to bend time and events in your favor” (Jesus Calling, February 10).

And it works. In obedience I put Him first every day. In prayer, in study and meditation. And when I feel like I have no more energy left. I stop – and pray – rest in Him for a few minutes. REVIVED. Ready to tackle a little bit more.

So this week OBEY has been at the top of my list. It means to turn to God. I learned three important steps to obedience:

1. Don’t wait for God to come to you.

2.  Your mind is a gift from God – Use it. Choose to obey the Holy Spirit.  Click to Tweet

“we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5, NIV).

3.  Prod your memory. Wake it up.

The word “remember” is spoken many times in the Bible. I have joined the Romans Project to help me remember God’s Word. And I also have been learning a Scripture a week in Experiencing God.

So memorize Scripture. You can do it.

“My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,” (Proverbs 3:1, NIV).

“Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father,and I too will love him and show myself to him.” (John 14:21, NIV).

If I want to have a close relationship with God I need to learn to obey.

What do you think? Are there ways that you have learned to obey? I would love to hear from you.

Can we build a community to follow God’s Word
