Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying, Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath burned.Jeremiah 36:27-28
Then took Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them many like words.Jeremiah 36:32
And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.Exodus 34:1
God remembers what He said. This is evident from these two examples from His Word. When Moses saw the idolatry of the children of Israel, he smashed the ten commandments of stone. When God saw that, He replaced the smashed tablets with new tablets. He wrote His Word afresh on the new tablets. This is the ministry of the Holy Spirit, to make God’s Word fresh to us, each time we sit down and study the Word of God. No longer is God’s Word written solely on tablets of stone or in a scroll. God’s Spirit writes His Word and His laws upon the table and scroll of our hearts.
Secondly, Jeremiah prophesied the Word of the Lord to the king of Judah. The king burned the scroll with its Words in the fire. Yet, God gave the words a second time to Jeremiah to write again in another scroll. God remembered what He had said. Yet, no longer are His Words solely on a physical scroll. His Word is alive by the Spirit with which He speaks. He wants the scroll of our hearts to be unrolled, constantly meditating and thinking on good things, namely His Word!
Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.Isaiah 43:26
Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.Malachi 3:16
Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.Jeremiah 1:12
God is always watching over His Word to perform it. The eyes of the Lord (the Spirit of God) is constantly searching the world for willing hearts that will receive His Word into the good ground of their hearts. God is looking for a remnant, a people that will be fruitful in the good works of Jesus Christ. God not only remembers His Word, He also remembers His people, those that fear His Name. He has promised to remember our sins no more, if we will but repent of them and turn from them to holiness and righteousness all the days of our lives. God has said that He will not forget His Word, His promises to His people. God is willing that all people everywhere would become His people through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.
God has already given us the power of His Word manifested directly by His Spirit, the Holy Ghost. He is watching over His Word and His people, looking for those who will activate the power of His Word by FAITH. Believing the promises and Word of God without yet seeing any signs or wonders following. Are you prepared to stand solely on the Word of God? Jesus was prepared to do just that, for when He was tempted by the enemy, He was quick to respond, “it is written”! He based His whole life on what God had written down on scrolls. He had allowed God to write His Word in a living way on His heart. That’s why Christ was effective. He lived not only by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds in a living way out of the mouth of God. God is a Spirit. He is a living Spirit and He speaks words of life. Everything He touches is made alive by the quickening power of His Spirit. Allow God to touch you today, afresh, in a living way through and in His Son Jesus Christ. We can depend on God’s Word. It is a sure foundation for our lives. God remembers what He said. Let us put Him in remembrance today of what He has said and watch what will happen, in direct proportion to our faith. It is a holy cooperation between God and mankind. God speaking His Word and us receiving it into our hearts and speaking its creative power over our lives and others lives. God bless you as you bubble over with the Word of God and the Spirit of God within you. Remember, God wants His Truth in our hearts, that He may bless us and make us a holy blessing to others in His Name. Amen.
