I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. Psalm 77:11
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands. Psalm 143:5
God has been gracious to me. He continues to be gracious even though He knows that I am forgetful. He sees the amnesia that draws my heart away from His faithfulness. In Joshua 4:5-7, God instructed there to be a monument of 12 stones “So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever.” After everything the children of Israel saw, how could they ever forget?
Over the next few weeks, I will be recounting and remembering 12 substantial stones in my life. Defining moments of God’s transforming and perfecting work in me and for me.
“My soul continually remembers it and is bowed down within me. But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-23
