The Book of Remembrance

by | Dec 30, 2009 | Bible Study, Faith, Spirit-Led Living

Malachi 3:1-4:6 I trust you have been blessed by reading through the Bible with me this year. I pray your first New Year’s resolution will be to read the Bible through next year and every year until you go to be with the Lord. Perhaps you would like to write devotionals of your own as you read through the Bible in this next year. I plan to write devotionals on those passages that I did not cover this year.

It has been a joyful experience for me to share my heart with you as certain passages spoke to me. One of the greatest inheritances we can give to our children are the words we have written down as we study God’s Word. Every time we speak about the Lord or even think about Him, a sentence or paragraph is written in the Book of Remembrance in heaven. Listen to what Malachi says: “Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name” (Mal. 3:16, KJV).

My desire is for my book to have thousands of chapters because of the many times I have spoken and thought of the Lord. I trust your book will also be loaded with chapters. Right now God is writing down in this book every thought you have of Him. Daily you have the opportunity to add to this Book of Remembrance as you think and speak about Jesus. I challenge you this year to write down your thoughts as you read through the Bible once again. You will leave a legacy for your children and their children they will treasure forever.

God bless you in the New Year as you add to your own Book of Remembrance.

Lord, thank You for caring enough to record Your words through the pen of men so I can be changed by these words. Thank You for sending Your Son, the living Word, to abide with me always. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit, who teaches me as I read Your Word. Thank You also for recording my words in a book as I think upon You and share Your Word with others. I am looking forward to reading my book of remembrance in heaven. I love You.
