“I CAN’T FORGET what You’ve done for me”. This was a song my old choir used to sing and those words are ringing in my head this morning. “Lord, I can’t forget what You’ve done for me. How You died at Calvary. Then You rose just to set me free. Oh, I can’t forget what You’ve done for me.” I want to always keep it at the forefront of my heart and mind. If He never does another thing for me, I received enough at Calvary.
I remember how He saved me when I didn’t deserve it, how He reached in and rescued me from my path of destruction. He literally saved this girl’s wretched life. I won’t forget how He loved me and cleansed me from all my sin and now, He’s set me upon a Rock that I should not be moved. I will remember what He’s done, and I know He will continue to show me His kindness.
David had this same heart and remembered what the Lord had done:“He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord.” Psalm 40:2-3
Do you remember what He’s done for you? Do you remember when and where He found you and how far He’s brought you? Do you remember that you were lost and now you are found? That you were blind but now you see? Do you remember that He saved you from certain destruction? Maybe you’ve been walking with the Lord from a child? This is my children’s testimony: the Lord spared them from the world and the effects of sin. They don’t have to endure destruction as I have had to. Praise God! Don’t forget. To forget His sacrifice for your life will either produce pride of life and a heart that says, “Look what I have done!” Or a heart of bitterness that says, “Woe is me, I’m always the victim”; neither of which is good, right or true.
Don’t forget how good He’s been to you and how He will do it again. He was faithful then and He will be faithful now. I am convinced that to not live with a heart of gratitude to the Lord for all He has done is to not be in a saving relationship with Him. If you are not grateful, have you truly received His gift? Maybe you have forgotten? Pray: “restore unto me the JOY of Thy salvation” and repent from having a sour heart. He has been so so good. Remember what He has done for you and it will produce a hope for what He will do again. #runyourrace
