As we follow Jesus, one of our greatest tools is the daily earnest work of remembrance. If we remember His "yesterday-goodness," we will believe today. If we take to heart the impossibilities He has already worked in us, we'll begin to have His view of the possible.
Consider Psalm 78:11-16 in the context, instead, of Israel's pervasive forgetfulness:
They forgot what he had done,
the wonders he had shown them.
He did miracles in the sight of their ancestors
in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan.
He divided the sea and led them through;
he made the water stand up like a wall.
He guided them with the cloud by day
and with light from the fire all night.
He split the rocks in the wilderness
and gave them water as abundant as the seas;
he brought streams out of a rocky crag
and made water flow down like rivers...
Oh, may you and I become so conversant in the impossibilities of our Savior that we never forget what He has done! May the impossible become a springboard for our Belief. In fact, let's rewrite Psalm 78 through the lens of Jesus' works:
They cannot forget what He has done,
the wonders He has shown them.
He did miracles in their sight, as well as 2,000 years ago,
in the land of ancient Israel, as well as right here.
He calmed the sea and led their lives upon the waters;
He made the waters smooth as polished glass.
He guided them with His Spirit by day
and with the Light of His presence by night.
He is the Rock who was tempted in the wilderness
and is the Water for all who thirst;
He causes "streams of living water to flow from within them"
and made the River of Life ever available...
Jesus, would you teach us to remember today, that we might Believe?
