But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Confession: Often, I am present in my Spiritual walk. Focused. Then along the way, I experience doubt. The doubt comes in cycles and waves. I ask, “Will He (God) do it. When will He do it? Has he changed his mind?”. When I experience this, I feel God has turned his back on me. I forget the beautiful prophetic dream or the great win I had a few weeks ago. I put all the weight on my current battle and thrust my faith in this one situation or promise. I feel like if it goes unanswered, then my whole world will crumble. I feel like I am judging the very essence of my God on this ONE promise that I depend on at the moment.
Fact: Hasn’t he come through for me. Time and time again? Hasn’t he rescued me over and over again. Hasn’t he overlooked my inequities and welcomed me over again?
Truth: He has! He has graciously loved me. He has boldly healed me. He has jealously protected me. He has fiercely defended me.
Recently, I was praying regarding my eight-year-old daughter, who is on the Autism Spectrum. I then went through a cycle of doubt. Forget the achievement that she made a few weeks ago. I put my God on the stand. This was when I realized how foolish I was and asked God what on earth can I do? Then he whispered, REMEMBRANCE. I began to ask the Holy Spirit to remind me of all the great and mighty things the Lord has done. Bring it to remembrance! Remind me! Let me cling on to that as I praise. Even if it is a whimper, I will open my heart and praise Him for WHO he is.
Remind me Holy Spirit, Remind me!
