Today’s Scripture Reading: Psalms 144-145; 88-89
Are your wonderful deeds of any use to the dead?
Do the dead rise up and praise you?
Can those in the grave declare your unfailing love?
Can they proclaim your faithfulness in the place of destruction?
Can the darkness speak of your wonderful deeds?
Can anyone in the land of forgetfulness talk about your righteousness?
God’s blessings are useless to the dead and those who can’t remember them.
Can I go as far to say that in the context of these verses ‘not’ remembering God’s blessings is the same as being dead?
I hate it when I forget something. Unfortunately, things like brain overload, stress, aging, etc. can cause us to be forgetful.
I wonder if God says in an understanding way, “They are just so busy; they forgot.”
- Who provided the job
- Who provided the nice salary
- Who blessed them with a spouse and kids
- Where their talents and gifts came from
How do you think God feels about our forgetfulness?
Heavenly Father, help me not to live in the land of forgetfulness. If I begin showing signs going there, get my attention. I don’t want to forget all that you have done for me! Jesus, thank you for the cross.
In Your Name I pray. Amen and Amen!
