People Forget

FAITH BOOSTER:

People Forget [Nov. 07,2020]

WORD OF FAITH:

Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way. Deuteronomy 8:2

Also Deuteronomy 8:2,10–18(NIV)

A woman complained to her pastor that she’d noticed a lot of repetition in his sermons. “Why do you do that?” she queried. The preacher replied, “People forget.”

There are lots of reasons we forget—the passage of time, growing older, or just being too busy. We forget passwords, names of people, or even where we parked our car. My husband says, “There’s only so much I can fit in my brain. I have to delete something before I can remember something new.”

The preacher was right. People forget. So we often need reminders to help us remember what God has done for us. The Israelites had a similar tendency. Even with the many miracles they’d seen, they still needed to be reminded of His care for them. In Deuteronomy 8, God reminded the Israelites that He’d allowed them to experience hunger in the wilderness, but then provided an amazing superfood for them every day—manna. He supplied clothing that never wore out. He led them through a wilderness of snakes and scorpions and provided water from a rock. They’d learned humility, as they realized how totally dependent they were on God’s care and provision (vv. 2–4, 15–18).

God’s faithfulness “continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:5). Whenever we find ourselves forgetting, we can think about the ways He’s answered our prayers, and that reminds us of His goodness and faithful promises.

 QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION:

  • In what areas do you struggle to trust God?
  • What Bible verses help you to remember how much He cares for you?

PRAYER OF FAITH:

Dear Father, thank You for always being faithful. Help me to trust You in whatever I face today.
