Beloved, how has your week been? I believe the theme of the month is already finding expression in our life, glory be to God, testimonies will follow suit as a matter of fact many have already testifying about God’s goodness, miracles and deliverance from onslaught, our God is good truly good to all that put their trust in Him. Indeed, this September will surely be one to be remembered, Alleluia Praise the Lord somebody!
Our topic today is a very exciting one or aren’t happy that to know or be remaindered that “God remembers” wow! We have several places in the Word where it was recorded that “God remembers” Noah, Rachael” (Gen 8:1, 30:22). And that remembrance was remarkable. For Noah, it was a new beginning having been in the ark for — God remembrance dried up the flood and new plant sprout out for the sustenance. For Rachael – it was a moment to conceive and be delivered of a man child- a promised child that fulfilled destiny.
When God remembered His covenant with Abraham, He remember the children of Israel in exile for four hundred and forty years (430 years) in land of Egypt and sent His servant Moses as a deliverer, we all knows the story that follows (Ex 2:24, Ex 3:15). Praise the Lord. Noah,
Beloved, our God is set to remember someone now, if you are the person shout a bigger alleluia!!!!!!!!!!! God is ready to break yokes and bands and fetters holding His children captive as has been declared to us at beginning of the month, God is a covenant keeping God and His Word sent forth must accomplish what it has been sent to do and must return foil, I hope that there is no doubting Thomas amongst us and we don’t have those who are grasshoppers amongst us.
God is going to deliver us with His Outstretched Arm and with great judgments, for His people the sheep of his pasture. Praise the Lord. (Exo 6:1-8).
God does not forget as it seem but after we have suffer for awhile He will you perfect, establish, strengthen and settle you. The long suffering of God is not slackness as it widely termed but not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2Pet 3:9).
Another astonishing revelation of God’s love in our life is clearly written down in Ezekiel 16:1-14. This passage of the Word of God in my opinion gives a lively description of our behaviour towards God. We were, like base-born children, cast out in the field to the loathing of our persons: no eye pitied or had compassion on us. Jesus passed by, saw us polluted in our own blood, and said unto us, “Live,” i.e. preserved us, even in our natural state, from death.
And when his time of love was come, he spread the skirt of his imputed righteousness over us, and covered the nakedness of our souls, entered into covenant with us, and we became his. He washed us also with water, even in the laver of regeneration, and thoroughly washed us by his precious blood, from the guild of all our sins. He clothed us also with broidered work, and decked us with ornaments, even with righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
We did eat fine flour and honey at his ordinances, and we fed on Jesus Christ in our hearts by faith, with thanksgiving. In short, we were made exceeding beautiful, and the kingdom of God was erected in our hearts. We were renowned among our neighbors for our love to God, and all that know us took knowledge of us, that we had been with Jesus.
But alas! how have we fallen, who were once sons of the morning! How have we trusted in our own beauty, have grown spiritually proud, and provoked our patient and unspeakably long-suffering Lord to anger? Where is that ardent love we spoke of, when we told him, that, though we should die for him, we would not deny him in any wise? How desperately wicked, and deceitful above all things, have we proved our hearts to be, since we have done all these things, even the work of an imperious woman?
These are great and numerous charges; but great and numerous as they are, there is not a single believer here present, but, if he knows his own heart, may plead guilty to some, or all of them. But this is a tender point: I see you concerned: your tears, O believers, are a proof of the anguish of your souls. And can any of us give any reason, why Jesus Christ should not give us a bill of divorcement, and put us away?
May he not justly speak to us as he did to his adulteress Israel, in the aforementioned Ezekiel 16, “Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord; I will judge thee as women that break wedlock, and shed blood, are judged. I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy, because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things. Behold, therefore, I also will recompense thy way upon thy head. I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, who hast despised the oath, in breaking the covenant, the marriage contract that was between us.” This, I am persuaded, you will confess to be the treatment which we all most justly deserve.
But be not overwhelmed with over-much sorrow: for though the Lord our God is a jealous God, and will certainly visit our offenses with a rod, and our backslidings with a spiritual scourge, yet his loving-kindness will he not utterly take from us, nor suffer his truth to fail. Though we have changed, yet he changeth not: He abideth faithful: his loving-kindness abideth for evermore. Hark! how sweetly he speaks to his backsliding people of old; “O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself, but in me is thy help. I will heal their backsliding, and love them freely.”
And in the verses immediately following the words of the text, how comfortably does he address his espoused people! “In a little wrath, I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer. For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn, that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn, that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed, but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.” O that this goodness may lead us to repentance! O that this unparalleled, infinite, unchangeable love, may constrain us to an universal, uniform, cheerful, unanimous, persevering obedience to all the commands of God!
Beloved, God loves us so much and He will not fail to remember you, let us discover more:
“Thus says the Lord: I remember you, the kindness of your youth, the love of your betrothal, when you went after Me in the wilderness, in a land not sown.” Jeremiah 2:2
Even when our hearts grow cold toward God and our devotion to Him weakens, His love remains steadfast. We may forget God, but He remembers us.
God was concerned because the people of Judah had allowed their hearts to drift far from Him. In a powerful moment, God shared His heart with His people, recalling what it was like when they first began loving Him. He remembered how they had loved Him, as a new bride loves her husband, with excitement and enthusiasm for the future. He recalled the kindness they had expressed as they willingly followed Him wherever He led them. God reminded them of the love they once had for Him, so that the memory might rekindle feelings of devotion and their hearts might return to Him.
If you do not guard your heart, you will grow cold in your love for Christ. A time may come when He approaches you and reminds you what your relationship was once like. Do you recollect the joy that permeated your life when you first became a Christian? Do you remember the thrill you experienced each time you came to understand a new dimension of His nature? You may not realize how far you have drifted from God until you contrast the love you are expressing to Him now with that of earlier days. God has not changed. He is the same Person you gave your heart to when you became a Christian (Mal. 3:6–7).
If your love for God is not as intense as it once was, return to Him. He will restore the intimate fellowship you once shared with Him. Apostle Peter has this to say:
“After that ye have suffered awhile, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” 1Peter 5:10
You have seen the arch of heaven as it spans the plain: glorious are its colours, and rare its hues. It is beautiful, but, alas, it passes away, and lo, it is not. The fair colours give way to the fleecy clouds, and the sky is no longer brilliant with the tints of heaven. It is not established. How can it be? A glorious show made up of transitory sun-beams and passing rain-drops, how can it abide? The graces of the Christian character must not resemble the rainbow in its transitory beauty, but, on the contrary, must be stablished, settled, abiding.
Seek, O believer, that every good thing you have may be an abiding thing. May your character not be a writing upon the sand, but an inscription upon the rock! May your faith be no “baseless fabric of a vision,” but may it be builded of material able to endure that awful fire which shall consume the wood, hay, and stubble of the hypocrite. May you be rooted and grounded in love. May your convictions be deep, your love real, your desires earnest. May your whole life be so settled and established, that all the blasts of hell, and all the storms of earth shall never be able to remove you.
But notice how this blessing of being “stablished in the faith” is gained. The apostle’s words point us to suffering as the means employed—” After that ye have suffered awhile.” It is of no use to hope that we shall be well rooted if no rough winds pass over us. Those old gnarlings on the root of the oak tree, and those strange twistings of the branches, all tell of the many storms that have swept over it, and they are also indicators of the depth into which the roots have forced their way.
So the Christian is made strong, and firmly rooted by all the trials and storms of life. Shrink not then from the tempestuous winds of trial, but take comfort, believing that by their rough discipline God is fulfilling this benediction to you.
And after all these has come to past, my God our God will remember you and make you perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you in what ever you are trusting Him for in Jesus Name.
Wow! I am turley blessed by the teaching of today’s PCL, and I know I have a witness in the house, if you are that person start dancing now as the Lord is set to deliver you with His outstretched Arm and position you for exploits and no devil will be strong enough to hinder Him.
Join me as I sing this song, come and see the Lord is good, come and see the Lord is good, there is nothing He cannot do, come and see the Lord is good. Alleluia!
As we come to the end of the week, may our weekend be blessed and may it please God who has strated His good works in our life grant of grace and favour to be part of next week espiode in Jesus Name Amen.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
