Memory is kind of a big deal. There are supplements you can take to help improve your memory. We rue the slow march of time that threatens to eat away at this precious resource. But memory loss doesn't wait to hit us when we're old; it can hit us rather young.
Spiritual memory loss. It's what happens when we forget what God has done for us. It happens to the best of us; Elijah went from a spiritual high on Mount Carmel to running for his life to wanting to lay down and die. (1 Kings 17-18).
We do the same thing. We forget what it is that God has done for us. And in that waning, doubt creeps in, undermining the foundation we've built on God. It's kind of a bad thing.
So how do we combat that? Simple, we remember. We find things that remind us of all the ways God has blessed us.
