I will never cease to be amazed when I think of Godâ€™s wonderful mercy and remembrance. How his unfailing grace and his flawless memory never ceases to be beyond my comprehension.
Think about this for a minute. He remembers every word and detail of what he has said, planned and promised. Not a detail has he forgotten. He knows the measure and manner in which he has planned on fulfilling his purpose. In a room full of God seeking people, you will have a room full of people that have numerous and diverse expectations that their faith is holding on to; what God has impressed upon them during times of prayer that HE is going to do.
God can take the seemingly general statements of one man and this room full of hoping people and can apply it to their specific situation. Every thing he has promised, from Adam until now, he has not and will not neglect nor forget the smallest detail of faith that he chose to inspire in the hearts of men.
It is hard to imagine being able to remember all of these details with a room full of people, but imagine just how staggering it is to calculate the incalculable amount of data that is stored, authenticated and instantly retrievable and will be executed in a moment of time. Your faith is All in the Mind of God, if he gave you the faith he is able to fulfill it. In fact in his mind, it is fulfilled.
Each one of us has differing reasons why the resurrection is of such a quickening force to our faith. I have found that no matter what the occasion, if you mention the hope of heaven, specifically the resurrection, faith will be stirred and hearts will be encouraged. It is a mystery to all of us to consider, but something in our innermost being rejoices in that hope of resurrection.
God has never forgotten anyone or anything. So donâ€™t buy the lie that God has forgotten you. God has not cast you off because your burden is to big for him to carry, cast that crushing weight upon him, for he not only has not forgotten you, he cares about your cause.
Stir up your memory. Remember what God has promised. Recall the rejoicing end of our faith, The Resurrection.
On that great triumphant morning, we will be able to see from a heavenly perspective how God fulfilled every word, every promise, every chapter, every verse and every line.
Be encouraged, God has not forgotten you or what he has said.
