“Put Me in remembrance” Isaiah 43:26.
Welcome to our readers to a blessed, supernatural and a prosperous 2012! If you have promises from previous years which are not yet fulfilled, please do not fret. Jesus Christ is in control. It is worth the wait. The Word says in Exodus 23:20, “Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.” We know that Jesus Christ is working for us. His plans are flawless and He does not want us to meddle with His plans.
When we find that things are stagnant and nothing is working in our favour, there is one thing we can do; and that is to put the prophecies and the promises of the Lord into His remembrance.
In the Holy Bible, there are the Lord’s saints who put the Lord into remembrance and one of them was Samson. We read about him in Judges 16:28. “Then Samson called to the LORD, saying, “O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!” God granted his request and we read in verse 30, “So the dead that he killed at his death were more than he killed in his life.”
In the first book of Samuel chapter one verse six we read that Hannah was provoked severely by Peninnah which made her miserable because she did not have children. In verse 10 it says, “And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the LORD, and wept in anguish. Verse 11: “Then she made a vow and said, “O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.” In verse 18 we see that Hannah went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad. God answered her prayer by giving a great Prophet who was also a great judge. His ministry took off with the downfall of a great Prophet – Prophet Eli.
In 2 Kings 20:1 we see that “King Hezekiah was sick and near death.” God sent Prophet Isaiah to inform King Hezekiah to “set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.” King Hezekiah refused to die and we read in verse 2, “Then he turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the LORD, saying, 20:3 “Remember now, O LORD, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what was good in Your sight.”
Prophet Isaiah returned to King Hezekiah to inform what the Lord had told him according to verse 5, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the LORD."
Moreover, the Lord gave King Hezekiah an additional blessing as we read in verse 6: “And I will add to your days fifteen years. I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of
He surely remembers you because the Word says, “He remembers His covenant forever, the word which He commanded for a thousand generations” Psalm 105:8.
