Over and over in Scripture God instructs His people to remember. He tells them set up markers so they remember. He institutes festivals so they remember. He gave us symbols and ceremonies even going so far as to say, “This do in remembrance of Me.” On this episode I take some time to recount where this whole podcast even began and to rejoice in impacted lives.
Join me in following the pattern that God has set out for His people. Join me in remembering.
On this episode I discuss:
- God’s instructions to be careful not to forget the Lord – Deuteronomy 6:10-12
- Using Deuteronomy 6:10-12 I consider:
- Large and prosperous cities I did not built – God’s story in me
- Houses stocked with goods that I did not produce – the songs I highlight on this podcast written and sung by others
- Drawing from cisterns I did not dig – the knowledge I gain from the wisdom and revelation of others
- Eating from vineyards and trees I did not plant – YOU! (my listeners)
- The Scripture that inspired it all – Psalm 119:15
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – our Bible Interaction Tool Exercises this week are:
- Read in context
- Complete a word study
- Meditate on God’s Word
- The power of a song to stay with us and impact us for years to come

I reference “He Is Not Silent” by Out of the Grey that has continued to impact me over the years. If you have never heard this song before, you can listen to the official audio on YouTube below. (Notice the album is entitled “Remember This”…neat coincidence as it relates to the content of this episode!)

This Week’s Challenge
A great place to sit for a while this week is Psalm 119. It holds 176 verses of meditations and prayers relating to the Word of God. The psalm is an acrostic of twenty-two stanzas, one for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The eight poetic lines of each stanza begin with the same Hebrew letter. Let the words of this Psalm become the meditations of your heart and don’t forget to listen to what God may be saying to you!
