The Holy Spirit helps us to remember what God is doing in our lives

"He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful.  He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant for ever."  (Psalm 111: 4 - 5) 

The Holy Spirit causes us to remember God's wonderful deeds in our lives.  When I welcomed this amazing truth into my heart many years ago, it changed how I looked at memory.  Remember is an active verb that we find all over scripture.  The act of remembering is critical in forming a loving relationship with God.  If we do not remember what God does for us, we may either give the credit to some other cause or not at all.  Because God wants us to give Him the credit for his wondrous works in our lives, He causes us to remember His deeds.  The Holy Spirit helps us to remember these deeds.  For me, this is one of most beautiful works of the Holy Spirit in my heart.  Thank you O Holy Spirit.
