As the year of 2019 winds down, we will also wind down in Isaiah. I am trying to make a practice of “remembering”. In a November sermon, Keith said, “If I want to be increasingly conformed to His likeness, I must practice remembering who He is and what He has done.”
Therefore, along with our scripture reading, I also want to pose a question to prompt us to remember. Let’s become practiced in the remembering discipline.
Ultimately, if the Israelites had made a practice of remembering who God was to them, as well as all He had done for them, perhaps the exile would have been unnecessary. I want to know Him and walk daily in the light of knowing Him. Remembering is crucial to that.
Read Isaiah 44
- In verse 23 he calls them to “remember these things.” What are the things he wants them to recall?
- What are the potential idols in your life today- what gets your best time, money, energy and efforts?
- How can you determine whether or not they are idols to you?
REFLECTION OF THE YEAR
As you think back over the past year, what are you most proud of?
Keith spoke this Fall on Galatians 6:4 “Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else.”
