Word-Filled Wednesday ~#56~ Remember...

PASSAGE: "Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in His presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored His name.

"'They will be Mine," says the LORD Almighty, 'in the day when I make up My treasured possession . . . '

"'But for you who revere My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall . . . '"
~Malachi 3:16, 17; 4:2 [emphasis mine]

LESSON LEARNED: May 20th will be my 30th birthday in the Lord. WOW! Who'd-a thunk it, huh? I often say that I have lived two utterly and completely different lives. I am a living example that the Lord "causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (Matt. 5:45) He kept me safe and alive until the time of His choosing ~ the day of my salvation. (II Cor. 6:2)

Days turn into weeks, turn into months, turn into years and as life goes on and seasons of hardship can take their toll. There are times when old temptations, old stirrings might want to come back ~ the devil, never missing an opportunity ~ quietly steps up to whisper in our ear and remind us about how "good" or how "fun" those old days were.

THAT'S when we MUST shake off those temptations and REMEMBER all that the Lord has done for us! REMEMBER all that He has brought us through and blessed us with. REMEMBER, if you can trace your salvation back to a particular day, how you felt to be free ~ to be washed clean as clean could be. Did you dance in your new birth? Did you leap for joy like a new calf bounding out of the barn door into the fresh air and sunshine? Did you breathe deeply and feel that NOW you were really alive? Did you bubble-over with the Good News of your salvation? Then remember those days and actually write them down if you need to. The Lord's work in your live is your HIStory!

We live in a fallen world, but it is a world where the Lord still works wonders in your life and mine. When the devil tries to take advantage of a weary moment, take out your "scroll" and fight fire with fire ~ there's nothing like evidence of the Lord's work in our lives to combat the flaming arrows of the enemy.

Is your Scroll of Remembrance waiting to be written?

  1. Yes, the devil never ceases from trying to tempt us back into going to the "old ways." May we all remember our salvation in Christ, and be glad in it!
