I know that the Lord has said, "Remember me, remember the good things I have done." I know some remembering is good and some is bad. Isaiah 43:8 in the amplified Bible was where the Lord led me first. "Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old." I thought, Okay, God, we shouldn't think ALL THE TIME about our past sinful lives, i.e, remembering the verse in Colossians, "casting off the OLD man," that surely isn't healthy, it's depressing to think of all the things we did or were capable of doing before You saved us.
Then I said, So what DO we remember? He then led me to Isaiah 44:21-22. "Remember these things earnestly, O Jacob, O Israel, for you are My Servant. I formed you, you are my servant; O Israel, you shall not be forgotten by Me. I have blotted out like a thick cloud your transgressions, and like a cloud your sins. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you." It's all listed in Isaiah 44, throughout the chapter, what He is referring to. It's interesting to note that first He lists Jacob, the symbol of rebellion of sorts, for Jacob was a cheat before he was Israel, were as a sinful people, and Israel together. Then, after that, in the next sentence, He only mentions Israel - what is referred to as the symbol of salvation, of sorts. So their former self, their Jacob self, was cast off, much like our old man is cast off. It was replaced by their Israel self, their saved self, which is then put on.
Now, that's just one instance in the Bible where we're told what to remember, but I LOVE it when our savior and true love LEADS the Bible study and you can just see His hand and knowledge and revelation all over it. He hears us and turns His ear to our voices when we seek after Him, and live for Him always. He was totally answering my questions in real time, so to speak!!
Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
