Remember His Deeds

June 4, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. —Psalm 77:11

As the people of God remember what God has done for them in the past, it has multiple effects. For one, it gives a longing for God to intervene again. This is why studying church history is so important, because as we see what God has done in the past, it gives us a longing to see God do it again today.

As we remember, it gives us hope. Hope that God can and will meet His people in their current distress. Hope that He will remember His promises. You see, the one who’s praying in Isaiah 63–64 wasn’t there when God moved in the Exodus, but now, in exile, that history has become much more relevant to him. He realizes that if God did this for his forefathers, then God could deliver his people from their captivity.

Where is God? He’s right where He’s always been. And if we rebel, He will set Himself up against us. But if we repent, He will come to our aid.

Make it Personal

Make a list of how God has moved in your life in the past. How does remembering help you with what you’re facing today?
