Remember me, O Lord!
Text: Psalms 106:4-5
4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation; 5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
Read: Genesis 8:1-20
Solitude is a form of bondage that makes the heart of the victim to be seared as if with hot iron. When a person is put in solitary confinement, he loses all his sense of freedom and everything attached to freedom. Until he becomes free, his joy is seized and he lives life as if lifeless. Freedom comes through salvation. Salvation is of the Lord and it comes when the Lord remembers the victim.
Imagine Noah and a few human beings dwelling in solitude with all manner of beasts in an encased ark for some time. It was not the best way to live. Or, is it David while virtually living with the father’s sheep in the wilderness where there were lions and bears? The experience must have been harrowing. Or, should we talk about Rachael: after her man had labored for fourteen years to have her, she became just a second wife in the hands of her beloved and yet barren while her sister and two maids were already delivering children to him? I’m sure no one wants such. But today, there are many going through one or another form of solitude without necessarily being in solitary confinement. If only you will call on the Lord to remember you today.
When God remembered Noah, he burst out in praise after having been saved and released from his solitude. David was remembered and anointed king from being a forgotten and relegated shepherd boy. When God remembered Rachael, He gave him a son who became the beloved of the father. Remember Mordecai? When God caused him to be remembered, his enemy was made to serve him and he was promoted from gate keeper to being the king’s second in command in a land of abundance and splendor.
As you call on God today, He will rescue you from bondage and bring you out of solitude into limelight to celebrate and be celebrated in the name of Jesus. That situation is changing for better from hence in Jesus name. Don’t despair. Just call on the Lord and He will remember you for good. Here comes your light. Rejoice!
Father remember me today and bring me out of obscurity to limelight in Jesus name.
