Adam’s Devotional – August 27-September 2, 2020

From Adam…

What has COVID made you forget? In the garden of Eden, Adam and Eve forget that they can go directly to the source and ask what God meant about the tree instead of debating with the snake. Freshly freed from slavery in Egypt, the Hebrews forget that God freed them, and they worship a golden calf instead. David forgets who he is and who God has called him to be when he’s on his roof watching Bathsheba. And Jonah forgets who God is and who he’s called to be when he boards a boat to Tarshish. If you look throughout scripture, you’ll find many stories of people who make horrible choices right after they forget who God is. Forgetfulness is often a precursor to sin. If that’s true, then maybe remembering is a precursor to faithfulness. What if what we remember actually shapes us? What are the things, ideas, and who are the people you remember on a regular basis?  What if you made remembering Who God is and what God has done as a regular remembering rhythm in your life? Remember that God pursues you no matter what you’ve done or where you are. Remember that in Christ, God is dying to love you. Remember that God remembers you. This week make remembering a part of your prayer practice. When you wake up in the morning, remember that God remembers you. Pray something like, “God remember me.” Or “Thank you for remembering me, Oh God; help me to remember more of you.” Remember, God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.
