Oh, how often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved his heart in that dry wasteland. Again and again they tested God’s patience and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
Psalms 78:40-41 (NLT)
There is a sad truth that comes with our maturing process. That is the fact that we can be stubborn and insensitive to the things of God. The Psalmist is pointing out the fact that the children of God were constantly forgetting all the good that God was doing and consequently were unappreciative of all He did for them and disrespectful of the way God wanted them to live. The author writes, “They did not remember his power and how he rescued them from their enemies. They did not remember his miraculous signs in Egypt, his wonders on the plain of Zoan.” Today, let us not grieve God’s heart. Let us not test the Lord. Instead, let us remember all He has done for us and be thankful for all His love and grace He has lavished upon us.
Dear Father, forgive me for forgetting what You have done for me. Forgive me for rebelling against Your ways. Help me to remember Your goodness and grace and to live the way You want me to.
