Scripture for Meditation

1 God remembered Noah and all the animals, wild and tame, that were with him in the ark. So God made a wind sweep over the earth, and the waters began to subside. 2 The fountains of the abyss and the floodgates of the sky were closed, and the downpour from the sky was held back. 3 Gradually the waters receded from the earth. At the end of one hundred and fifty days, the waters had so diminished

8 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and all the domestic animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided; 2 the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained, 3 and the waters gradually receded from the earth. At the end of one hundred and fifty days the waters had abated;

Meditation on Scripture:

I am very close to someone who has suffered a severe reduction in their short term memory function. So much so that conversation loops multiple times in a very short time. Things I share with this person do not make it into their memory. As a result it causes me to reevaluate the nature of identity and connection. Our spiritual substance is not reduced to our ability to remember. Eventually all the physical matter that makes up our brains and memory creation mechanisms will fail and eventually turn to dust. Does this mean we cease to be? Do our memories define us? How bound are we to who we used to be? How bound are we to the actions of others in the past? 

When I was reading around in scripture for instances of remembering I was rewarded with the realization that many of the references to remembering, it is God that is doing the remembering. Remembering His covenant, remembering His children. There are times when he asks us to remember, such as remembering the sabbath day to keep it holy. Unlike us, remembering is something that defines God. It is a characteristic of God to remember his covenants and to honor them. It was God remembering Noah that saved him and his family from the flood. 

In this scripture we see God remembering Noah, and after a period of trial, to allow Noah's life to move to the next level. In our dark moments we feel that God may not remember us. We don't see God’s timing, we don't know God’s intentions. We don't fully understand the upper and lower bounds of His covenant. Know this, God remembers you. Even more importantly that God rescuing us for our life circumstances, God remembers his great covenant to us. He remembers the offering of redemption. When things get difficult and you wonder if God remembers you, remember His word. Since our memory is so much more limited, lets commit to rejuvenate our understanding of Him by reviewing the events in scripture and possibly keeping a personal journal of ways God has blessed us that we can review when we feel God does not remember us. Something that becomes clear in scripture is that each time God’s people wonders if God remembers them, the far greater challenge they face is their remembering Him. Let us continually turn our attentions to the everlasting love God offers. Turn your memories to Him, turn your past over to Him, even more importantly turn your future over to God. 

Meditation of Prayer:

Pray as directed by the Spirit.

Dedicate these moments to the patient waiting, when you feel ready ask God for understanding you desire from Him.
