Psalm 111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: The LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
God wants us to remember what He has done. It is so easy to forget His goodness. We grow accustomed to it so much that it seems reasonable rather than extraordinary. God has been good to us. He saved us when we didn’t deserve it. God has shown compassion in giving us a new life. He has heard and answered our prayers. We live enjoying the benefits every day.
Somehow we begin to appropriate them to ourselves. We start thinking we deserve God’s goodness, or at least all that is happening in our lives right now. We believe our goodness brought about all that God did. We live in an ocean of love and grace and think that is just the way it is supposed to be.
We have forgotten Him. We have failed to remember His wonderful works. We have grown selfish. We have begun to live like ingrates. God forgive us. Help us never to forget what you have done.
