In the scriptures, God often used things we would SEE as a sign to REMEMBER the things that He has done. In Genesis, He used the rainbow to remind us that He had made a covenant that “never again would all flesh be wiped off the face of the earth by flood.” In Joshua, He had the Israelites take 12 stones from the dry riverbed of the Jordan and stack them up so that “When your children ask, ‘What do these stones mean to You?’ Tell them, ‘They are a memorial to what the Lord has done.’”
Something really remarkable happens when we engage imagery with our time in the Word. When we take the time to express what we have learned in a tangible way, with words and images, it is like the flash of the camera casting illumination on the subject and recording that moment in time in a way that insures our ability to return to that truth time and again.
See and Remember...this idea occurs over and over again in scripture...God providing a tangible reminder of a spiritual truth.
I hope you will try to "keep going" on something this week that you find yourself wanting to give up on...and I pray that you are delightfully surprised with the results! Blessings!
