Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered, (Psalms 105:5
It’s easy to become forgetful. We forget where we parked the car, we forget about appointments and meetings, sometimes we even forget birthdays and anniversaries. But we seldom forget about the people who are very important in our lives, unless that person is God. Israel, time and time again forgot God. The God who delivered them from 400 years of Egyptian slavery, the God who parted the Red Sea, the God who brought water from a rock and fed them with heavenly manna. They forgot all those things because of one reason… Doubt.
The children of Israel whom Moses led through the wilderness for forty years never entered the promised land because of that on reason. They doubted God, they failed to believe, as the writer of Hebrews tells us, “So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.” (Hebrews 3:19
They doubted Him in the good times because they became complacent and un watchful. They grew comfortable and secure, assuming their own might and ability was enough and so they forgot God. They also forgot him in the bad times. When trouble and difficulty came, they complained rather than seeking him. They wanted ease and comfort rather than patient deliverance, and so they forgot God.
Today we are no different. We are as hymn writer William Cowper said, “prone to wander Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love.” May we make it a daily prayer to remember God and what he’s done for his people. The salvation he’s given, the forgiveness he’s offered, the love he’s shown, the mercy he’s extended, the grace he’s offered, the hope he’s promised, the life he’s guaranteed. Let us never forget, and the way we won’t forget is to always remain thankful!
Don’t let your worries get the best of you; Remember, Moses started out as a basket case.
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
In ancient Palestine it was common for worshippers to set up altars to there idols and false gods in the “high places.” (Numbers 33:52; Leviticus 26:30) Perhaps David thought of this as he wrote this Psalm. Those altars dedicated to false gods in the high places, on the hilltops and mountains, were powerless to offer help in times of trouble. Crying out to Baal or Ashteroth would do know good, for a god created by human hands or in the human mind, can never deliver the supernatural help that’s needed. (Psalm 115)
David recognized that when he looked to the high places, to the hills, his help would not come from a sacrifice made to an idol, but his help could only come from The Lord, the one true God, the creator of heaven and earth. Jehovah alone was able to deliver. He had proven himself faithful to David, he had delivered Israel time and time again, and he is able to rescue those still that will lift up their eyes to him by faith. We can be tempted to look for help and answers in many places when troubles come, but the answer for us is still the same. Where does our help come from? The only true source it can come from, The Lord himself!
