Put Me in Remembrance

Sunday January 26, 2014

God blots out your transgression for His sake and tells you to put Him in remembrance (Isaiah 43:25-26). This is covenant and legal language, pointing to a contract made together. What does He forget? He forgets our sins. What is to be remembered? We are to call on God to remember His promises to us. Remembering is a covenant word to make a claim on a promise that was given. God does not count our sins against us, because He put them on Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:15-19). We are to declare the Word of His covenant. We can plead our case for righteousness together with the Holy Spirit. We say God’s Word promise, and the Holy Spirit pleads with us. We declare our innocence that we may be justified. Keep your own word (Psalm 15:1-5). What God says, He will do. We insult and offend God when we dishonor or disbelieve what He says. God’s Word will come to pass, if you listen to His voice to observe and to do it (Deuteronomy 28:1). Jacob pleaded with God (Genesis 32:9). You can plead with God by saying, “Lord, You said …” Put God I remembrance of His promises, plead together with the Holy Spirit, and make a declaration.
