The fleeting years become more pronounced.
My friend and I were speaking each to the other about this thing of “old age and its accompaniment”. We agreed on a number of “episodes” but we also agreed we could not remember some of the details of others for which we “purposefully” had placed in the cupboard of forgetfulness. Because of our difference in age, mine appears to be a little more pronounced than his, but I will never admit that to be the case to him.
God did remind me of certain facts pertaining to promises He had made to Israel and how He would never forget them. For instance, one of His methods of recall to His activities on their behalf is found in the one hundredth and fifth Psalm where He says: “Make known His deeds among the peoples.” (Verse 1)
While the majority of people in the world continue to display their ignorance to the sacred Scriptures, there are a few who continue to dig their sand-holes in the grounds of the past and expose the truths that our Bibles of the present have long ago reported. You know, they are called archeologists? Did you ever study the multitude of promises that are currently solidified by these “groundhogs”?
In that eighth thru the eleventh verses of Psalm 105 we read: “He has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations, the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac.
Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, saying, ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion of your inheritance’.”
It is exciting to read on and see God give a promise to a “few people” and then go on to fulfill it gratuitously. His re-memory is excellent!
The world tries to change those promises… I suggest that they give up and watch as God remembers.
