Deuteronomy 8:2 – And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
When was the last time you stopped and meditated on where God has brought your from? In this scripture, the word remember refers to:
- Think about
- Look back
- To bring back to mind by trying
- Be careful not to forget
- a worldly life
- a life going nowhere
- an empty life
- a worried life
- an overwhelmed life
- a dissatisfied life
- on and on and on….
- The trials of life which include – sickness, disease, death, sorrow, pain, financial woes, etc.
- The temptations of the devil – to give up, quit, get weary in well-doing, the lies he tell us that Christ doesn’t care or care enough
- The pleading of our own flesh for satisfaction and comfort
