Remember the Time?

All over the Word of God we are told to remember... remember what we were like before we were rescued, remember the amazing things that show what God has done in us and through us, remember His providence, remember His faithfulness, remember so that we can give thanks, remember so that our children can know Him.  

Deut. 5:15 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day. 

1Chr. 16:12 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, 

Neh. 9:17 They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery. But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Therefore you did not desert them, 

Psa. 22:27 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him, 

1Sam. 7:12 Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far has the LORD helped us.” 

Psa. 78:4 We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. 

A few weeks ago I got to thinking that I want create a tradition of remembering in our family God's goodness in our lives. We are putting up a "Ebenezer Box" in our house this week. It is a cabinet that we hope to fill with objects... "Ebenezers"... of God's goodness and faithfulness to us. I am excited to share what we have to put in it.
