When I think of the word "remember" I think of the places in the bible where we are told to look forward or not to look back:
- Lot's wife, and she didn't listen very well and ended up as a salt pillar (Gen 19v26)
- Don't look back, look forward to what lies ahead (Phil 3v13 and Prov 4v25)
I think we should remember the good things and the things that Christ has done for us, as David did many times in Psalms. The word instructs us to do this so that we can be encouraged and our faith will be renewed and restored.
I think when we remember the bad things that have happened, we should look at those memories and learn from them, not be crippled by them. We need to remember that satan brings these thoughts to our minds, not for any positive reason. Only to hurt us and delay growth. Remember that, remember his plans are to separate you from God and His blessings and take those memories to God and leave them there. You know that the things of the past that have been dealt with, are well.... dealt with! The devil would have you believe otherwise. Refute his lies with God's truth!
Remember - God has a plan and purpose for your good, for your life
Remember - to whom you belong
Remember - His word and His truth
Remember - He loves you
Remember - Be thankful in all things
Remember - All good things come from Him
