I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
One of the most powerful spiritual exercises we can practice is to remember. There have been plenty of times I have become defeated in my faith, depressed, and simply questioning God’s faithfulness or willingness to operate in my life. More often than not, I am looking at my present circumstances or maybe the most recent defeat or stumbling I’ve had.
If you look through the earlier verses in this Psalm, you will find that David was in a bit of a rut himself.
David had learned the value of worship and testimony. He knew the value of remembering God’s faithfulness and wonders of old.
I would encourage you to take some time, even today, to remember God’s work. Remember the miracles He’s worked in you previously. Take time to muse on His provision. Meditate on the times you first encountered His presence in a real way. I promise it will stir your faith and bring encouragement to your soul. It will give us motivation (this is key) to keep moving forward. Certainly, we don’t want to get stuck in the past. I’m not even big on praying “do it again” sort of prayers, but if God was a miracle worker yesterday, He’s still a miracle worker today! If He could speak yesterday, He can still speak today.
