DO NOT FORGET ABOUT GOD

Devotional for August 2, 2021


Morning: Ecclesiastes 12:1-8

Noon: Psalm 97

Evening: Proverbs 3:1-10


Amado Nervo, the great Mexican poet, once wrote, “If you take God with you, you will never feel foreign anywhere, because He will be in the sweetest of all sceneries, in the indistinctive limit of all horizons. If you take God with you, you won’t ever be sad anywhere because, despite the daily tragedies, he fills the universe with joy. If you take God with you, you won’t fear anything or anyone because you cannot lose anything, and not even all the force of the cosmos are potent enough to take away your inheritance. If you take God with you, you already have a high occupation for any moment, because there is no act that you won’t execute in His name, not the lowest, not the highest.”


These wise words reminds us of the great necessity of having God present in every moment and occasion of our lives to be able to overcome everything, especially ourselves. Our enemy knows this very well. That’s why he’s ready to put before our eyes and minds whatever it takes to make us forget about God.


Let us cry out with fear. We don’t want it to be the case that after we have preached to many, we forget about God and lose our soul.


— Judith Stone


Remember your Creator…



 

Morning: Ecclesiastes 12:1-8

1. Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

2. While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:

3. In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,

4. And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low;

5. Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:

6. Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.

7. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. 8. Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.”



Noon: Psalm 97

1. The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

2. Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

3. A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

4. His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

5. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6. The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

7. Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

8. Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O Lord.

9. For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

10. Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

12. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.



Evening: Proverbs 3:1-10

1. My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

2. For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

4. So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

5. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

7. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

8. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

9. Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

10. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
