Remembering the Future

God tells us to remember. He uses standing stones, feasts, symbols and tradition to ensure future generations know who He is and what He has done.

During Passover dinner, the history of God’s deliverance of Israel is recounted. Joshua piled stones at the Jordan so future generations would ask about the miraculous crossing there. Jesus said to remember Him and His sacrifice when we break bread together.

Take time to recall what God has done with you, with your family, in the life of your church or spiritual community. Why is remembering the past important? God is the same. His character never changes and His faithfulness endures forever. Recalling what He has done and who He is gives confidence amidst the trials of today. And it emboldens faith for tomorrow.

so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:5
