Back to the Basics: Week 5

The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 12:1 – “Remember your Creator, in the days of your youth…”

Why would God’s Word tell us to remember Him…?

It must be because He knows it’s so easy to forget Him in these years of our lives.

Think about it: how many days & activities have you ventured through…all without keeping God in mind?

I surely find myself forgetting God in areas of my day.

But the Bible says to “Remember your Creator, in the days of your youth…”

Every day.

It also says, in 2 Timothy 2:8, “Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead…”

Yet I don’t always remember him.

This is where the solution comes into play: spending your morning with Them.

It's not a complete fix to the problem, but it greatlyhelps. It sets order!

In the New Testament, the Bible says “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed…” (Mark 1:35)

Alone time with God is so extremely vital. Especially morning time, when we get up – it’s such a vital part of starting our day. In fact, it’s so important, that Jesus did it.

I encourage you to start your day off (tomorrow or today) in alone time with God – because this will help you focus on and remember Him throughout the day. Go ahead, set your phone calendar/alarm now! And do it!

Remember………remember. Never forget

Why? Because what needed to be forgotten is forgotten (see below), now it’s time to constantly remember God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit….the love….and it’s time to praise.

“For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."

Remember your Creator, in the days of your youth…”

If you do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ…with God…then I encourage you to read Romans 10:9-13 here: http://read.ly/Rom10.9.NIV

And know this: He wants a relationship with you. If you want to know more about how to start a relationship with God, then I encourage you to FB message me or txt/call me @ 405-315-4837!

Rememba’!

Time-to-Talk!:

Q1: Have you been remembering God? Be honest here, because dishonesty to yourself in this question will only lead to more problems.

Q2: Where do you drift away from God (time-wise) the most? Where do you lose track of Him?

In response to your answer on Q2, I propose this: Start seeking God in the front, middle, and end of those times. It is vital - so vital - because nothing is more important than God, even though everything around us is trying to compete for what He deserves - our thoughts, attitudes, hearts, minds, and strengths.

Remember!

Let's get some convo going! (P.s.: Don't forget to set your schedule with God for tomorrow morning - first thing to do out of bed!)

A Drunk Friend & A Bible

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness...    2 Tim 3:16

I delight in your decrees, I will not neglect your word.   Psalm 119:16

Have we been neglecting God's Word?

Keep in mind: We make time for what we value.

I encourage you to read Psalm 119:9-20
