The Power of Remembering
James Tollett – September 13, 2013

Over the past month, I have been reading through the Book of Psalms.  A common theme that is often repeated in this book is remembering the various things that the Lord has done.  In fact, these songs were more than just mere remembrances; they were a rehearsing and rehashing of their history with the Lord.

In several of the psalms, the author begins by admitting that he is in trouble.  An example of this can be found in Psalm 120:1, “In my trouble I cried to the Lord, and He answered me” (NAS).  Things have not gone right.  As you read this and the other psalms around it, you notice that the author retells or rehearses what the Lord has done to punish or to deliver His people.

I believe the psalms present the believer with a great principle: the power of remembering.  As we remember things, those memories can change our outlook, our perspective, and they can help us trust more in the Lord.

The power of remembering can cause you, the believer, to realize:

In other words, the power of remembering can provide the believer with a sense of destiny and direction.  As one remembers, one gets a more accurate picture of life.

The power of remembering also reassures the believer that the Lord is with him/her every step of the way.  The believer is not on this journey alone.  Even at times when the believer has not been faithful, God has been faithful.  Thus, remembering reminds the believer that part of his/her task is to appropriate the help and guidance of the Lord.  This psalm teaches, “He answered me.”

Another benefit of the power of remembering is that it helps to refresh one’s testimony.  As you relive or rehearse the past and share it with others, it not only strengthens you but it can help others who have been struggling.  The believer’s testimony is a powerful tool for evangelism.  As you remember, it causes others to remember their own stories.  Testimonies that are based on the power of remembering are non-threatening types of evangelism.

This week, I want to encourage you to experience the “Power of Remembering.”  It can give you clarity in your own life, and by sharing your story, it can build the Kingdom of God.

Until next week, I am James Tollett, your missionary to America.

SURVEY TIME:

Last week I announced that I was thinking about offering a course on “The Last Days.”  I had a few people state they were interested.  The course will first be offered as a webinar, and then eventually as a DVD offering.  Because of the nature of this course, it will take a great deal of work on my part to put this together.  To spend the quality time necessary to do this, I would need at least 10 people to sign up for the course.  I am still thinking the course will be about 8-12 sessions in length.

Currently, here are some of the topics to be covered:

If you would be interested in such a course email me at james@jtmin.org.  In the subject line write “Last Days Course”.
