Forgetting to Remember

Read Psalm 78:40–72; Acts 25:1–27

It started one Sunday and continued for almost four years. People were saved, healed, and baptized in the Holy Spirit on a regular basis. And there were also signs and wonders that left the Calvary Temple congregation in awe.

Some of the wonders included angelic appearances, glory clouds, and gusty winds that blew during prayer times. Then, one day, the miracles ended. That’s something the Israelites could have identified with.

They did not remember his power—the day he redeemed them from the oppressor, the day he displayed his signs in Egypt, his wonders in the region of Zoan (Psalm 78:42–43).

Sometimes Christians forget God’s spiritual, supernatural nature. Whatever God has done in the past, He can do in the future. And He can do things in the future that no one has imagined or can imagine.

Those who want to see such things would do well to remember the miracles God has already done. Reflecting on the past helps build faith for the future.

Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to confirm His Word with accompanying signs.
