“But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his plan to unfold.” – Psalm 106:13 [NIV]
When something is right in front of us, it is hard to miss it. When something is fresh in our minds, it is more likely to be remembered. The Israelites were able to remember the Lord when they were in the middle of a situation and He was providing them with their needs. But it did not take long for them to forget what he did and impatiently seek to find their own way in the world.
Again and again we are told to remember God’s Word and to teach it to our children. There are feasts in the Old Testament that were held to help remember. In the New Testament, Jesus participated in these feasts and during the Last Supper, He gave His disciples a new way to remember—Holy Communion.
Still today, there are moments when we forget what He has done and there are times when we are too impatient to wait for His plan. We take things into our own hands. We don’t wait. Today, make a point to remember what God has done already in your life and ask Him to show you the path to continue on for his plan to unfold.
