What does remembering God look like?

When we are in daily communion with our Lord, we can more easily accept that He is in absolute control of everything facing us.  Whether we are pummeled by adversity or overwhelmed with joy, God has our circumstances well in hand.  Spending regular time with the Father allows us to bring Him all of our concerns and feelings.  Then He can rejoice with us or cradle us according to our need.

Praying through Scripture and asking God to speak to our heart about what we read is our privilege as Christians.  When we’re quiet before the Lord, we have the opportunity to receive His guidance and power for navigating our circumstances.  Consequently, God restores our weary soul and renews us for another day.  Quoted from Charles Stanley/In Touch Devotional, September 3.

A reminder:

How does a nation choose God?  

One individual at a time.  We are important, each one of us, if that’s true.  Not in a sense of what some see as ‘indoctrination’.  But in regard to a daily walk discussed in the quote above.    Regardless of what type of government is leading, or what type of leaders make up that government, individuals make up the nation.  It’s a good idea to pray for Christian leaders though.

So what’s the big deal?  Why does any of this matter?  “Therefore, this is what the Lord God says:  ‘Because you have forgotten Me and cast Me behind your back, you must bear  the consequences of your indecency and promiscuity’.” Ezekiel 23:35
