Remembering Cures and Fuels

Scripture tells us to remember who God is and what He has done. Here are two of the reasons:

Remembering cures fear, depression, and more.

David, when he was in despair, deliberately remembered God.

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him for the help of His presence. O my God, my soul is in despair within me; Therefore I remember You. (Psalm 42:5–6)

Jesus told us not to worry because God knows about our needs, for example, the Father feeds the birds and we are worth more than them. (Matthew 6:25-34)

In a tough, awful place? We are reminded that, no matter what, our loving Sovereign causes all things to work together for good. (Romans 8:28)

But we have to remember! So we have to know!

(See Remembering Cures Scared)

Remembering fuels thanksgiving, praise, and worship.

Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness. (Psalm 150:2)

To praise Him, worship Him, we need to know—and remember—His mighty deeds and His excellent greatness.The more we know Him, the more we remember Him, the more we give Him thanks, praise Him, and worship Him.


In order to remember, we have to know, and, in order to know, we must know His word. Study the Bible! Make pouring over His word a daily routine. The more we hide His words in our hearts, the more our difficult emotions are cured, and the more we worship Him.

For almost four years, I posted every month about praising Him for something specific. You might want to look at Praise A to Z Volume 1 and Praise A to Z Volume 2. Perhaps something there could give you a boost.

Praise God!
