Remember God

By Greg Laurie

 

           

LISTEN

 

 

So Noah, his wife, and his sons and their wives left the boat. . . . Then Noah built an altar to the LORD.

 

 

—Genesis 8:18, 20

I don’t know about you, but if I had been in a wooden boat with a bunch of animals for a year and I finally hit land, the first thing I would do is kiss the ground and then run and jump around. I would want to get some exercise.

 

But that isn’t what Noah did. According to Genesis 8:20, he remembered the Lord: “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and there he sacrificed as burnt offerings the animals and birds that had been approved for that purpose” (NLT).

 

That says a lot about Noah. He knew how to put first things first, and we can do the same. For example, before a meal at home or in a restaurant, how about giving thanks to the Lord? It doesn’t have to be a long prayer; just give thanks to the Lord for the food He has provided.

 

I think it’s a great thing to do this publicly, but not in a showy or ostentatious way. I was in a restaurant the other day when a very large family came in. When the food arrived, they all bowed their heads and simply gave thanks. I loved that. I thought it was a great testimony.

 

Another way to remember the Lord is with the faithful giving of our finances. Proverbs 3:9 says, “Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce” (NLT). Acknowledging that everything you have has been given to you by God and honoring Him with your finances is remembering the Lord.

 

Instead of updating your social media or whatever else you’re doing, take your Bible out and read it. That is a way to remember the Lord.

 

We often have a tendency to forget God. Put first things first. Remember God.

God is obviously not finished with us, so we must draw close to the Lord and ask. Give Him all your burdens beloved. Give Him your loneliness & draw close.

Yes, I will pray for you beloved. I know exactly how you feel. In fact most of us if not all of us fight loneliness. Jesus said, He will never leave us!
