STOP AND REMEMBER

David expresses in Psalm 77 the same powerful emotions that you may feel tonight. He was in great distress, crying to the Lord with a soul that "refused to be comforted." God seemed an endless distance away as David reminisced about the days when he sang in the night to the Lord. This made him feel even more depressed, unloved and rejected.

If you're in this condition tonight, moaning, "How do I get out of this mess? How can I be restored?" The answer David discovered is the same Brother Cerullo shares in his book Seven Steps to Personal Victory. The first step was to recognize Who God is. The second step was to remember!

Remembering pulled David out of his rut. "I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds...You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples" (Psalm 77:11-12, 14, NIV). For the next six verses, David continued to remember!

Why is remembering such a powerful force? Because when you remember what God has done in the past, you will realize that He wants to perform just as powerfully now and in the future.

So stop for a moment. Think of what God has saved you from since you were born again. Remember, He hasn't changed; He still wants to perform miracles!

Our Evening Prayer - Let's Pray Together...

God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, thank you for being the same God yesterday, today and forever. Thank you for all the miracles and deliverances You have performed for me. Help me remember Your faithfulness and love, trusting that as You have worked for me in the past, You will work even more powerfully now! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
