“Remember the days of old…,” Deuteronomy 32:7.
Today is a good day for reflection. It may be Monday and the beginning of the week, but if we just take a moment to think on His goodness and where He has brought us from already, oh, the impact that would have at the start of this day and this week! The remembrance of His holy protection and love that has carried us so far could ignite a fire of passion inside us to do more, to be more, to come up to where He wants us more.
The status quo goes into the day business as usual. We can enter in with a refreshed spirit and with a new mindset because our past has already testified that He has been there for us. So far, we have survived everything that we have been through and it’s because of His power, His grace, His mercy that is directing and covering us. No, the path wasn’t always easy. But, we are here today because of the love of God at work in our lives and the belief that He has so much more in store for us.
There’s an old song that says, “When I think of the goodness of Jesus, And all He’s done for me, My soul, my soul cries out, Hallelu, hallelujah, I thank God for saving me,” (GMWA Youth Mass Choir/Lyrics Source: Allgospellyrics.com). Reflection would reassure my soul that no matter what I am facing today, God is still faithful. Taking a look back at the days from of old reminds me, He didn’t bring me this far to leave me. Remembering His goodness tells me if He did it once, He’ll do it again. The mindset is my God is able, He has before and He will again be there for me through it all.
Today has just started but because of God, we can see a victorious end. This week might be brand new, but it’s not new to Him. He has our days numbered. We are in His thoughts. He knows all about us and in Him we rest and believe for so much more. The journey of our soul will keep pushing ahead because we believe God has held us so far and He will hold us through today as well.
