THEME: ALWAYS REMEMBER THE LORD THY GOD
TEXT: Psalm 106:7
106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.
“34 And the children of Israel remembered not the LORD their God, who had delivered them out of the hands of all their enemies on every side: 35 Neither shewed they kindness to the house of Jerubbaal, namely, Gideon, according to all the goodness which he had shoved unto Israel. ” (Judges 8:34-35)
The children of Israel were negligent to the point that they did not remember the Lord their God in spite of everything that He did for them neither did they show kindness to the family of the vessel whom God used to deliver them. While accuse them for being careless, believers of today are proving to be more careless. With the advent of science and technology, they see many things as being products of man’s creativity than God’s grace. They hardly applaud testimonies except those of contracts running into millions and billions.
Many seem unhappy with God. Sometimes, they are angry with God because they feel He has not given them money. This reflects in lateness to church services. lukewarm-ness, nonchalant and lackadaisical attitudes to the things of God — as if they are being dragged to serve God. The same cannot be said of their attitude towards home videos, eating or drinking. This is the time to remember God in everything you do. He is the source of life; without Him there is no life.
Sing spirit filled songs unto God and thank Him for everything He has accomplished in your life and then take the following prayer points.
Father, I give you all the glory for everything you have done for me, in Jesus’ name.
2. Every spiritual weakness, lukewarm attitude, negligence, lackadaisical and uncommitted Christian life; be halted by the Holy Spirit, in Jesus name. Any backsliding spirit that has gained access into my life: be ousted by the Spirit of God, in Jesus name.
3. Every plant my heavenly Father has not planted; be uprooted, in Jesus’ name. Every seed of ingratitude and non-appreciation of the gifts and blessings of God upon my life: be uprooted, in Jesus’ name.
