Does it seem to you that the human mind is like a sieve when it comes to remembering our blessings, but like a steel trap when it comes to remembering our hurts, offenses against us, or our problems and cares?  Likewise, why are we so quick to forget God's faithful care for us when we face a time of need, test or trial? I don't know why that is, but it seems to be a common human condition.

To me, Psalm chapter 78, is the quintessential chapter that addresses this issue. God, through the psalmist Asaph begins the chapter by reminding the children of Israel that they are to remember God's deeds and wonderful works and to be sure to pass them on to the succeeding generations so "that they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God but might keep His commandments".   (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, October 21st, at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

Also happily linking up with the lovely


  1. I get amazed sometimes at the things God has done in order to prompt us to remember or to instruct us. In I Corinthians he informs his readers that "these things happened" to the people of Israel for our instruction! Amazing the lengths to which He will go to teach us!

  2. I've become so keenly aware of how much of a help remembering is to my spiritual growth and my ability to get stabilize during the hard times. Just recalling God's faithfulness quiets me and reminds me to step away from fear and toward trust.

  3. Yes you are so right. We easily forget the good and never forget the bad.
