Because We are Reminded of the Greatness and Faithfulness of God
Nehemiah 9:16 – The Israelites became arrogant and stiff-necked, they didn’t remember the miracles God had performed for them and then they wanted to return to their slavery.
We have short memories, and when we forget all that God has done for us we tend to stray away. The profound impact of being in a worship gathering, where a group of people are all affirming the greatness of God, brings back the truth of God’s greatness to the depths of our hearts like nothing else!
When I wrote the song — We Will Remember — today [that day] wasn’t looking good, and even tomorrow was looking hopeless, but as I read Nehemiah I was reminded to look back.
