1 John 2:4-6

Whoever says “I know Him” but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps His word, in him truly the LOVE of GOD is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him: whoever says he abides in Him​ ought to walk in the same way in which He walked.

The Ministry of Memory. GOD can use our deepest disappointments to nurture our faith in Him.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”—Jeremiah 29:11

Our experiences of loss and disappointment may leave us feeling angry, guilty, and confused. Whether our choices have closed some doors that will never reopen or, through no fault of our own, tragedy has invaded our lives, the result is often what Oswald Chambers called “the unfathomable sadness of ‘the might have been.’ ” We may try to suppress the painful memory, but discover we can’t.

Chambers reminds us that the Lord is still active in our lives. “Never be afraid when GOD brings back the past,” he said. “Let memory have its way. It is a minister of GOD with its rebuke and chastisement and sorrow. GOD will turn the ‘might have been’ into a wonderful [place of growth] for the future.”

In Old Testament days when GOD sent the people of Israel into exile in Babylon, He told them to serve Him in that foreign land and grow in faith until He brought them back to their home. “ ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’ ” (Jer. 29:11).

GOD urged them not to ignore or be trapped by events of the past but instead to focus on Him and look ahead. The LORD’S forgiveness can transform the memory of our sorrow into confidence in His everlasting LOVE. —David McCasland

FATHER, thank You for Your plans for us, and for the future that awaits us in Your LOVE.
