Remembering God’s Faithfulness

In the midst of life’s trials and uncertainties, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, discouraged, or stuck in that doom and gloom spiral of negativity. Yet, as Christians, we have a powerful tool at our disposal—one that has been employed by believers throughout the ages: the practice of remembering God’s faithfulness.

Psalm 77:11 reminds us of the importance of this timeless strategy:

“I will remember the deeds of the LORD.”

This verse serves as a beacon of hope, guiding us out of the darkness of despair and into the light of God’s faithfulness.

When we face obstacles, impossibilities, disappointments, or the sense that our lives are stagnant, you and I can break free from the grip of despair by following these steps:

Step 1: Stop the Spiral of Negativity

The first step is to make a conscious decision to halt the downward spiral of negative thinking. Instead of dwelling on our problems, we must choose to stop rehearsing the junk that holds us back from believing in God’s faithfulness.

Step 2: Replace Negative Thoughts with God’s Faithfulness

Once we’ve stopped the negative spiral, we need to fill our minds with thoughts of God’s past faithfulness. Just as the Psalmist recounts the deeds of the LORD, we should reflect on the countless times and various ways God has come through for us and others.

Step 3: Preach to Yourself

Whenever anxiety or worry creeps in, we must remind ourselves of the goodness and faithfulness of God. Like a preacher delivering a powerful sermon, we can proclaim the wonders of God’s faithfulness, both in Scripture and in our own lives.

By following these steps—stopping the negativity, replacing negative thoughts with God’s faithfulness, and preaching to ourselves—we can break free from the spiral of gloom and doom. Sweet discouraged Sister, we are not bound to despair. You are I are empowered by the grace of God to live in hope and confidence.

So, my friend, when you find yourself trapped in a spiral of negativity, remember the words of the Psalmist:

“I will remember the deeds of the LORD.”

Take heart in the knowledge that God has been faithful in the past. Write it down if you must. Then take charge of your thoughts, believing He will continue to be faithful in the future.

Oh, how we need encouragement in this area! May God help us to lift up one another so that we practice this time-tested strategy for bolstering our faith. Remembering that God is always with us, guiding us through every trial and triumph is our path to victorious living. As we preach to ourselves the wonders of His faithfulness, may our hearts be filled with hope, joy, and unwavering trust in our Heavenly Father.

For His glory,
