“We will never forget!”
These are words most often associated with great tragedies such as the Holocaust or 9/11…and they rightly should be. But today, the day after we remembered the tragedy of September 11,2001, I woke up with the Spirit of the Lord speaking two words to me over and over,
He then said, “Kathi, My people are quick to remember trauma and tragedy but slow to remember all of My benefits and the great miracles that I have done!”
Then He began to recount to me the testimonies of old from the Bible and the personal testimonies that He has marked my life with. Because I am a “glass half full” type of person (always the optimist!) this recounting of His goodness is like honey to my soul.
We must always remember the losses and times in history that have been marked my great adversity and great sacrifice, but we need to be quick to “forget not His benefits!”
“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:2-5
In this hour I feel a great prophetic weight upon the testimonies of Jesus! As you remember (or forget not) the miracles, deliverances, protections, provisions, healings, leadings, breakthroughs and goodness of God they will prophesy to your days ahead.
“Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10
We must hold to the testimony of Jesus that we read about in the Bible and have experienced in our own life’s journey. They prophesy the sound of breakthrough! The very sound of these remembrances change the atmosphere and open up new testimonies of His faithfulness over your life.
There is a very popular worship song that is being sung all over the world at this time that is called, “Do It Again” The first time I heard it the Lord spoke to me and said that this song was prophesying a great move of God where we would see the miracles of old happen again.
Some of the words to this song are as follows;
I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again
You made a way, where there was no way
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again.
What He has done before is prophesying what He will do again! Write them down, recount them and share the testimonies of Jesus ; He will “do it again!” I believe that September (especially Rosh Hashanah) will mark a time of entering an age of great miracle, signs and wonders. As we then move into the “Days of Awe” I feel that we will enter ten years of awe. They will be marked by His faithfulness and mercies toward the people that He loves.
As I was walking through Washington, D.C. a couple of weeks ago and showing my youngest son all the memorials of wars (The Civil War, The World Wars, Viet Nam, The Holocaust Memorial Museum), I felt as though the Lord said, “I am about to erect memorials of My faithfulness!” They will bring a new chapter in history that declares who He is!
It’s time to set up memorials that recount His goodness and mercy. Let’s be quick to remember the testimonies of His faithfulness and teach them to our children and our children’s children. Of course we will never forget our history and the great sacrifices made but we must be quick to remember and recount His benefits and faithfulness.
“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” Lamentations 3:21-25
