We Are God’s Treasured Possessions
Every once in a while I’ll meet with an old friend that I haven’t seen in many years. We talk and laugh about “the good old days.” It is pleasant to remember those days. This passage deals with the idea of people coming together and remembering past times. It speaks of a scroll of remembrance being written.
I remember as a child being in awe of the stories of great blessing my mom and dad used to tell. There were stories of miraculous healings, even the dead being restored to life. There were stories of God providing when no one else around them had anything.
Were my parents super hero type Christians? No, they were just every day hard working believers who took God at his word. Of people like my parents Malachi says, “The Lord listened and heard.”
The Lord says, “They will be mine in the day when I make up my treasured possession.” What a promise. I encourage you to make it a pattern in your life that you get together with other believers and remember the blessings of the Lord.
Are you making treasured memories of God's grace?
Prayer: Thank you Lord for being so good to me and my family. You have filled my life with wonderful memories of blessings and your great favor. In the name of Christ I thank you. Amen.
Message: You don’t have to be a super hero to be a treasured possession of God, but He is blessed when we gather to share the stories of faith. I encourage you to make it a pattern in your life that you get together with other believers and remember the blessings of the Lord.
Affirmation: I have purposed to take every opportunity to speak of the goodness of God and his grace.
Reflection: You may not have realized the value of gathering with others to share your personal stories of faith. Hebrews 10:25 instructs us to gather often and encourage one another. Are you encouraging others?
