Get wisdom, get understanding: forget [it] not... Proverbs 4:5

Oh how easy it is to forget! Have you ever had a time when God spoke to you through a particular verse of scripture in such a powerful way that it became a revelation? Many times I've had experiences where God spoke to me in just such a way and I can remember walking in those verses right on through to victory but, sad to say, as time wore on and the breakthrough was but a memory a similar occurrence seemed to pop up out of nowhere and I suddenly began to walk in a way contrary to what God had originally shown me.

Was I walking contrary to Gods revelation on purpose? No, I simply realized that I had forgotten what He had originally given me through His Word about that particular situation.

In our day and age many would seem to place minimal importance on the Word of God and sad to say that the word "Doctrine" has become a "dirty word" in the vocabulary of some; sound doctrine is of utmost importance and believers are encouraged to continue in sound, true, and right doctrine.

The Truth is that if God thought enough of His Word to have men write it down then He did this for a purpose. God wasn't just giving these holy men - inspired by Him - something to do in their spare time and He wasn't just simply trying to fill the pages of a book, God had a specific purpose in having men penn His Words on the page. Peter gives insight into the importance of God's Words. He writes in 2 Peter 1:12-15,

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know [them], and be established in the present truth.Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting [you] in remembrance; Knowing that shortly I must put off [this] my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.

Peter said that if he did not remind these believers of the Truth then he himself would have been negligent but instead he wanted to stir them up by putting them in remembrance of the Truth.

It's often been my experience that when I'm reminded of something mentioned in the Word of God it stirs something up in me; I remember a banquet I attended as a child where all of us had ordered ice tea and when our tea arrived we would put those little sugar packets in our glasses of tea and stir them in order to make them sweet.

In the same way when you put yourself in remembrance of Gods Word you stir up your faith and it makes life so much sweeter as you begin to feel yourself rise up in faith and walk in victory!

Dear believer I would encourage you today to stir yourselves up in the faith by remembering all the many things that God has promised you in His written Word; when you do this you will find yourself walking in the kind of victory that God has promised you.
