107. Share your spiritual journey

Moses was addressing the Israelites camped on the banks of the Jordan river. He told them to remember all that the Lord has done for them. He was quite adamant about it, as he knew that if they remembered all of God's provision in their lives, they will continue to follow and obey Him.

"Be very careful never to forget what you have seen the Lord do for you. Do not let these things escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren." Deuteronomy 4:9

Thus he warned them to always remember how the Lord had been with them, through thick and thin. And even more importantly he told them to pass it on to their children and grandchildren. The descendants had to know how wonderful God was and how He had looked after them for all those years and how miraculous His deeds are.

We should also remember all of God's wonderful provision and miracles in our lives. A few weeks ago I said that you should keep a spiritual journal and record all of God's messages and victories for you personally. And today I would like to emphasize it again. It is really rewarding to look back and to see how God had come through for you on several occasions. It strengthens your faith and it also gives you hope for the future.

Now besides keeping a journal, share your spiritual journey with your children and grandchildren as well. Tell them how God has helped you, share with them the Word God has placed in your heart and tell them of the wonderful future that lies ahead for all who believe in Jesus. Don't keep spiritual matters for yourself, but share them with your family. God works in families and He loves children. Jesus especially. He told His disciples to not keep the children away from Him, as the Kingdom of God belongs to them. Children are very open to spiritual matters and can easily be influenced. And therefore it is important that you influence them with the right doctrine and personal testimonies from a young age.

God wants us to grow in our faith and therefore He wants us to reminisce on His provision in our lives. Don't neglect it. It is a wonderful means of growing closer to God.

Father thank you that You always look after us. Thank you for Your provision and blessings in our lives. Help us to never forget it and to share it with our family and especially our children. In Jesus Name. Amen
