Read Now To This New Message From Victoria Osteen, “Use the Power of Remembrance”

So many times when negative things happen to us, we just tuck them away into the treasury of our hearts. Perhaps you’ve been experiencing some of these over the past weeks. But then when you want to remember what is beneficial and what is good, the negative thoughts break in that makes you feel sad, lonely, or depressed. Maybe those negative thoughts make you feel fearful for what could happen in the future. That’s what negative thoughts do. They cause us to pause, to not walk in faith and victory. That’s why I want to encourage you to remember the good.

Throughout the New Testament, the apostles often made statements such as, “I am writing to remind you.” The apostle Paul said to Timothy, “Keep reminding God’s people of these things” (2 Timothy 2:14). Peter wrote to his readers: “Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking” (2 Peter 3:1). They knew the power of remembering the right things. They knew that when you remember what God has said and done, it will transform your thinking and your life. They knew that it’s so easy to put our minds on autopilot and forget all His benefits. We have to know that there’s transforming power in our remembrances, especially during times of difficulty.

Don’t fall into the trap of trying to convince God how good you’ve been lately, justifying why He should bless you, basing His love on your good works. That kind of thinking causes us to shift our perspective and start judging who is and is not worthy of God’s love. None of us is worthy. You can’t work for God’s love; you can only receive it. The work has been done.

Thank you, Lord, for being in charge of everything. Who is the boss here? You are the Master. God is in control of everything. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Jesus.
