"How in the world am I going to make it?!" I've heard that and thought that on more than one occasion. Sometimes the only way to break through what we face today is to remember what God did in the past. I could not have managed the past several years, nor could have my bride and kids, if not having seen God's hand so powerfully in the past. I've witnessed some of the most extraordinary exploits of God and it's those very things that put fuel in our soul to "make it!"
"Stay the course.” “It’s just over the next hill.” “Don’t leave now!”
When we can hear the voice of God it sounds just like that. Constant encouragement to stay strong in faith. But questions creep in…”Will he really deliver?”…”Is it worth the battles?” The answer is not before us – it’s behind us. A quick glimpse over our shoulder can transform our future. And I've never had a season in my life that I'm more fired up about the future.
Our memory is the friend of future victory. God has given us some high octane fuel for faith. Remember what God has done in the past and never let it fade from your mind. Always keep it coming off your lips – the remembering of God's power in the past. Our future victory is assisted by a good memory. When we’re tempted to think this faith-walk is crazy…”then you shall say”…”the Lord has showed signs and wonders”. Look up! "The heavens declare the glory of God". Hold onto the stories of victory, both past and present, and never let them be lost in the challenges of today. Remember and rehearse the wild exploits of God and repeat them often. You're gonna to make it – make it big-time because we have a big-good-God!
