“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth . . .” (Deuteronomy 8:18, NKJV)
This is Moses’ command to the children of Israel just prior to his death and their crossing over into the promised land. Moses reminds Israel that when they come into the land of promise and are blessed, they are not to forget where those blessings come from. They are to remember who brought them, and where they came from. They are too remember it is God who gives them the power to get wealth.
We too must remember Who brought us, where He brought us from and Who is yet bringing us.
1. Too many people, once they have achieved some measure of success, seem to forget where they came from and who brought them through.
2. I say quit often, “the most popular sin, the sin that is most common to humanity, is the sin of forgetfulness.” We tend to forget Who brought us and where He brought us from.
3. Remembering the Lord is more than just taking a cognitive, retrospective glance back and thinking about God. Remembering the God that brought you is thanking Him continuously. It is honoring His commands. It is testifying about Him and what He has done for you to others.
Do not be guilty of the sin of forgetfulness. Always remember WHERE THE POWER COMES FROM!
