January 27:2020

And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So, they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.” And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.
Exodus 14:10-14 (NKJV)


When it comes to remembering God’s faithfulness, we can be especially forgetful. How can one be thankful while being forgetful? It is impossible! The only way our hearts can truly be thankful is if we always reflect on what God has done for us in the past.

Why do you think the Israelites easily forgot God’s powerful intervention on their behalf? Fear! Thank God for the servant of God who proclaimed the power of the Lord amid such fear and doubts. If they had looked back and remembered the victorious way God had led them out of Egypt, they would not have uttered such words of disbelief.

Brethren, as is his usual tactics, the devil sends fear into our hearts when we are faced with challenges and we sometimes forget that the God who had done it in the past is much more capable to do so much more. We must always be careful to pause amid challenges and begin to reflect on the goodness of God in the past. There is always one, two or more extraordinary miracles we have experienced in our walk with God. In the course of doing that, we must remember to always tell our testimonies, even if the desired miracle has not manifested yet. If you thank God for one miracle, He will do more for you!

Beloved, what events in your life do you look back on as special evidence of God's love and care for you? Reflect on those today and thank Him! He will do more for you this year.
