Have you ever walked up to someone, introduced yourself, listened to the other person’s name and then promptly forgotten it? I hate it when that happens! Kevin Trudeau has a course called Mega Memory. I listened to his tapes during my thirteen-hour drive to Fort Hunter Liggett, California. My intent was to improve my memory (especially for names), so I listened to the tapes I’d heard before but forgotten.
Psalm 77:11-13--I will remember the Lord’s works; yes, I will remember Your ancient wonders. I will reflect on all You have done and meditate on Your actions.God, Your way is holy. What god is great like God?
I’m glad that God has given us a memory. While I may not do well in recalling the names of new faces, let alone the techniques for improving memory, it is not hard to remember the incredible things God has done to give my life meaning and purpose. I like what Jeduthun shares in Psalm 77. “I will remember the Lord’s works.” Memory focused on God:
If we fail to remember God, we should not be surprised if the stress of daily living in a sin-infected world seems at times overwhelming. Don’t let today’s battles become bigger than your God. What He did for your yesterdays should fill you with hope for both today and tomorrow! Remember and believe! Recall His deeds and say, “He is able!” Something to think about . . . in reveration!
Memory is a spiritual thing and exists in the heart; the brain recalls more or less clearly what the heart remembers.—Oswald Chambers in Biblical Psychology
