If you have prayed, and praised but have not yet received what you have been trusting God for, it may be time to start reminding God of His promises. The word of God tells us in Isaiah 43:26 to put Him in remembrance. This may be asking Him to remember His promises in scriptures, or anything that you want God to remember you for.
Solomon did the same thing in that night when God appeared unto him and asked what He should give him. “Now, O Lord God, let Your promise unto David, my father be established” (2 Chronicles 1:9). And the speech pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this thing. If the Holy Spirit said that God was pleased with Solomon’s reminder about what God had promised his father, surely, it is also good for us.
Most parents will agree with me what happens when you promise your kids to give them something. You are always reminded of the promise you made until you just get tired and say, let me just give and be free from these reminders. Our God is Holy, and full of compassion, mercy, and love therefore cannot keep quite when He is reminded on His promises.
After Jacob had deceived His brother to get the inheritance, the time came when the Lord told him to return to the land of his family (Genesis 31:13). When Jacob heard that Esau his brother was coming to meet him, and 400 men are with him; he was so afraid and distressed. Then Jacob prayed to God; “O God of my father Abraham, and god my father Isaac Who said to me, “Return to Your country and to your family, and I will deal well with you”. This was actually reminding God of His promises, and God intervened in the situation and changed Esau’s heart.
In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death, and Isaiah the prophet came and told him to put his house in order, for he shall die and not live. Isaiah 38:2 tells us that Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the Lord and said; “Remember now ; O Lord I beseech You, how I have walked before You in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in Your sight. And Hezekiah wept sore” (Isaiah 38:3). He was not claiming that he had no sins, but times have to come when God has to be reminded and this is done in the secret place.
It may be that you are struggling with sickness; there are many verses in the Bible that can be used to remind God of His promises on healing. For example, “Lord, You said that by the Stripes of Jesus Christ I am healed” (Isaiah 53:5). “Lord you have promised me that you will forgive all my iniquities and heal all my diseases” (Psalms 103:3). If all these reminders are done by faith and believing that He is indeed the healer, it will be done.
When any issue look stubborn, and do not know what to do, look to God and His word in faith, and pray reminding Him of His promises. Remember that our God is “not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man that He should repent” (Numbers 23:19). He will surely answer your prayers.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
