And he said to the people of Israel, “When your children ask their fathers in times to come, ‘What do these stones mean?’ then you shall let your children know, ‘Israel passed over this Jordan on dry ground.’
– Joshua 4:21,22 ESV
Again and again I have been shown that the past experiences of God’s people are not to be counted as dead facts. We are not to treat the record of these experiences as we would treat a last year’s almanac. The record is to be kept in mind, for history will repeat itself.
– Ellen White, Letter 238, 1903 (PM, p. 175)
Take the time this month to remember; how God has moved in your life, the difficulties that you have faced and how He has shown himself strong through it all, bad decisions that you made and God protected you in spite of yourself. And if you can’t remember don’t take it lightly, that is an attack of Satan, choose now to keep a journal or a record, do something creative so that you can remember all the things God has done and is doing in your life. After all – “We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” – Last Day Events pg. 72.
