“Review the past for me; let us argue the matter together.” Isaiah 43:26 NIV
My brother-in-law loves Psalms. Every morning before sunset, he goes to his prayer room and spends time with His Heavenly Father. He begins his day thanking the Lord for His love, goodness, and faithfulness. Then, he reminds the Lord of His promises. I couldn’t understand why we needed to remind our Father of His promises for years.
But, today, the Lord reminded me how much He loves for His children to remind him of all his promises.
In Isaiah 43:26, the Lord said to Isaiah, “Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together.”
God invites you and me to remind him of his promises. How do we do that? It’s simple. We need to spend time reading his Word and meditate on it. Then, when we know his Word, we can faithfully come to our Heavenly Father and say, “Lord, you said….”
Here are some promises that have helped throughout my walk with Jesus.
“Lord, you said you would walk me through the waters.” (Isaiah 43:2)
“Lord, you said you would lead me through the valley.” (Psalm 23:4)
“Lord, you said you would never leave me or forsake me.” (Hebrews 13:5)
“Lord, you said if I believe in the Lord Jesus, my household (family) and I will be saved.” (Acts 16:31)
“Lord, you said you would cause all things to work together for my good.” (Romans 8:28)
When things appear to go wrong, and life storms overwhelm my soul, I remind my Father of all His promises. One promise I keep going back to is Roman 8:28.
This promise reminds me of how the Lord took a terrible situation in my life and turned it around. He restored all the broken pieces and made me whole.
Friends, I don’t know what season you’re in right now- but be encouraged; our Heavenly Father wants us to remind Him of His promises.
Find a promise that fits your current situation and build your prayers around it. Remind our Lord of His promises. These prayers of faith will touch our Heavenly Father’s heart, and miracles will start to happen. You may not get your answers overnight but trust me when I tell you that it will come, and you will overcome.
Father, thank you for your Word, faithfulness, and unconditional love. Lord, thank you for being a constant in my life and faithful to your promises. In Jesus’ name, amen!
