He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever. (Psalm 111:5)
What a word of comfort we have before us today! Our Redeemer remembers all of His promises to us . . . even when we believe we have provoked Him to want to forget! Here is what we all must remember: It is His faithfulness to us—not our faithfulness to Him—that causes Him to remember all of His promises.
Our Redeemer remembers His promises to us and never regrets making them, because they are fixed from all eternity. He knows we are but dust, and from time to time we drift from our duties. Yet He has promised never to forget us or forsake us. He remembers to provide us with our daily bread. He remembers to meet us in our place of deepest need. He remembers to forgive us again and again. And He remembers to love us with an everlasting love. When God makes a promise, we can count on it, because no weapon formed against us can cause our faithful Redeemer to allow a single Word to fall to the ground.
So regardless of where this message finds you today, remember your Redeemer, who remembers every promise He has made to you. Do you have a need in your personal life? Take it to your Redeemer who remembers. Do you have a need in your professional life? Take it to your Redeemer who remembers. When you fear God, you have nothing else to fear, for He has promised to meet all of your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
There is one more thought that I’ve discussed here before, but it bears repeating. Throughout the Bible we read God’s assurances that He will always remember His covenant promises to His adopted children . . . His promises to you and me. Christian, there is only one thing that our loving Lord says He will forget; He says, “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more” (Hebrews 10:17).Thanks to the sacrificial death of our Redeemer on our behalf, God the Father has promised that He will forget our sins. And He will remember that promise for all eternity.
This is the Gospel. This is grace for your race. NEVER FORGET THAT . . . AMEN!
