Good morning, friends! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was truly wonderful!
This morning I was catching up on my Bible reading. I wasn’t able to read my chapters this weekend, so I had a couple more than normal to read. If you’ve ever wanted to read through the Bible, I am loving The Bible Recap. I know I’ve shared about it before and I’m sure this time won’t be the last.
One of the things I’ve noticed so far is that God continuously reminds His children of what He’s done for them. In Deuteronomy 5, He reminded them of how He brought them out of Egypt, the land of slavery. And then in chapter 8, He reminds them of how He led them through the wilderness for 40 years.
This isn’t the first time He reminds them. We’ve seen it all throughout scripture how He constantly reminds us of who He is and what He’s done for us.
I’ve done a lot of remembering myself lately. Especially thinking back about this time last year and how uncertain everything was. Yesterday as I heard the song, The Blessing, I was reminded of how God truly took care of us.
This song is so special to me. This blessing, these words were spoken over me daily by my daddy. He prayed this over us and anyone he knew. Every prayer he prayed, he closed it out with this blessing.
When I first heard the song, it was a couple of days before the world shut down. Such perfect timing because it was my saving grace during those days to come. I remember running our neighborhood with this song blasting in my ears on repeat as I fought back the tears.
As I listened to the song yesterday, I thanked God for His blessing in my life. In the most uncertain of times, His presence went before me, beside me and all around me. He was for me not against me. And today, all of that remains the same.
Things were so crazy a year ago. No one knew how things would turn out. But God did.
I don’t know what your year was like, but I encourage you to think back and look for God in all of those moments. Remind yourself of his goodness. Don’t forget the way He brought you through.
I think that’s why He constantly wants us to remember what He’s done. We tend to forget, especially when we are going through hard times. As humans, we focus on the now and when the now is hard we can’t think of anything else. When we remember, our trust is strengthen because we know that if God did it then, He will do it again. He is our unchanging God. Always present and constant in our lives.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)
He is for us. He is not against us. He goes before us. He protects us. He wants what is best for us.
So today, I invite you to receive this blessing. I love how Kari Jobe said, It’s the heart of the Father for His kids. This blessing is for you. For your children and their children.
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26
I love you, friends!
