We are coming to the close of 2015, and I know you’re probably doing what I’ve been doing this past week…looking back; thinking about the things that you could have, should have, or wished you would have done. We can’t go back and change it no matter how much we want to. But while you’re pondering the things that didn’t happen, have you stop to celebrate all the things that did happen? Why is it we reflect upon our failures first? Why do we want to think about the things that cause us pain more than we think about the things that bring us joy?
There will be times things won't happen when we thought it should or the way we wanted, and we think the Lord has failed us. Yes, there are times we think the Lord let us down. Yet, here we are, we are still standing; that means He supplied everything that we needed. So, why aren't we reflecting on those memories.
If you are going to look back, then you must also remember how the Lord has kept you. If you are going to look back, look back on the blessings, not the curses. Remember the things that are true; God wants you to prosper and be in good health. Remember the things that are honest; His promises, He will never forsake you. Remember the things that are just; His righteousness. Remember the things that are pure; how the blood of Jesus that washed away your sins. Remember the things are lovely; His goodness and mercy. Remember the things that are of a good report; His word can’t return to Him void. Remember to think on these things and never forget, it’s not over until the Lord says it’s over.
In less than 48 hours a new year begins, and we are not going to bring what happened yesterday into the new year. So, let's talk about remembering your blessings
