Have you ever told someone to remember you when they get famous or win a large sum of money? Maybe you said it jokingly but there may have a hint of truth in that statement! Naturally, if someone you loved became famous or got a large windfall of money, you would hope on some level, that you would be remembered!
Nehemiah found himself asking the Lord to remember him throughout scripture. Nehemiah wanted to be remembered for his good work in helping the children of Israel become resettled in their promised land.
Nehemiah wanted to be remembered for good because he understood that his reward was in Heaven. Nehemiah wanted to be remembered for good because he desired to please the Father. Nehemiah knew that the Lord is the ultimate Judge. Nehemiah understood that there was no one who mattered more than the Lord.
Don’t be afraid to call out to the Lord to be remembered. In us reminding the Lord to remember us, this helps us to remember the Lord and His great promises to us! Scriptures are filled with laments and cries out to the Lord to not be forgotten! Don’t be afraid to repeat the promises the Lord has made to you back to Him, this helps us to remember that the Lord is faithful to do what He has promised.
Cry out, “Lord, remember me!” He permits us to be free and open with Him. Shout, “Lord, remember me”, as that draws you closer to Him and that will draw Him nearer to you. He has a cattle on a thousand hills, He is the One who can move mountains, and He is the One who extends blessings. There is no one greater to be remembered by than the Lord, your God!
As you serve and seek Him, be free in crying out, “Lord, remember me!”
Peace and Blessings
