The Point

The God who guided you in the past will guide you now and in the future.
The Bible Meets Life

George Santayana said: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” While that statement has value in reminding us to learn from the past, it implies that what we did in the past was a failure. However, we also need to remember some things so that we can repeat them. For example, King Asa had previously depended on God and found success. Later in life, though, he forgot how God had faithfully worked in his life. Ultimately, this led to various failures on his part.
The Bible Meets Life

King Asa was a tower of strength throughout most of his reign. He defeated Zerah the Cushite and called his nation to a solemn assembly to renew their commitment to Yahweh. As a result the Southern Kingdom of Judah rested in peace for about twenty years. But then its rival kingdom Israel raised its belligerent head led by its king, Baasha.

Live it Out

Make a list. Write a list of truths from God’s Word you have learned recently. Evaluate how you responded to each one.

Memorize the Word. As a reminder of why you can always trust God, memorize 2 Chronicles 16:9a: “For the eyes of the Lord roam throughout the earth to show himself strong for those who are wholeheartedly devoted to him.”

Help someone else remember. If you know someone who needs a course correction, ask God for direction in how to speak the truth in love to him or her.
Wrap it Up

Many people have a tendency to look ahead and forget what lies behind. However, there is one thing Christians should never forget. We should never forget God’s goodness in our lives.
