His unforgettable works of surpassing wonder reveal his grace and tender mercy.
Some people, things, times in our lives hold unforgettable memories. Isn’t it amazing how something will come back to your mind – seemingly from nowhere? You smell something and you are back sitting on a kitchen chair in your grandmother’s kitchen. You put a fresh shirt on and when you decide to sniff its freshness, you are being carried by your father, inhaling the smell of him once again. You hear a song and you are on the grad floor dancing with your date. You go for a walk and pass by flowers and you are watching your mother knelt in front of her pink peonies. And these are the simpler ones, not the big happenings in our lives.
Jeremiah said, “But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:21-23).
In so many places, even places that we thought we wouldn’t make it through, God did an unforgettable work. A work full of wonder. Like, how did God do that?! In the wonder His grace and tender mercy are revealed to us once again.
If you are in one of those places or circumstances presently, call to mind the surpassing wonder of a time when God’s grace and tender mercy brought you over the hump of hardship. Ask the Spirit to bring back to your memory that time of revelation.
We are never forgotten by God and He wants us to not forget the many times His grace and tender mercy sustained us. Let God’s great works be unforgettable so that they can bring you the faith you need to believe He will do again.
