Last week, we touched on not forgetting all God has done for us, not only through the year but since we’ve been born till now. God has been awesome! This week, we are continuing on that same series “and forget not”. In the book of Lamentations chapter 3 from verses 1-19… Jeremiah recounted all the afflictions he had passed through. How he had gone through pain, agony, infirmities, troubles and tribulations. Moreover, starting from verses 20 and 21, He said “My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope” Jeremiah, did not forget; He did not forget how God saw him through those times; he refused to forget how God delivered him; he chose to remember God’s ever present help character in His time of trouble.
In verses 22 and 23, Jeremiah the attributed his saving grace to the mercy and compassion of the Lord on His life. I would like to stress that Jeremiah’s acknowledge is a fact. Without God’s mercies upon our lives, we’d have been consumed. “They are new every morning, great is His faithfulness.” His mercies saw us through and that is why we are alive today. Where I come from, we often say “many waters have passed under the bridge but the bridge is still standing”. God has been our rock, our shield and our refuge. He is worthy of all our thanks and praise. As we go this week, lets choose to be like Jeremiah, and not forget all of God’s blessings upon our lives. Shalom!
