“…The Holy Spirit…will remind you of everything I have said to you.”   [John 14:26]

The word remember is one of power—God’s word acts as a magnet to bring into the present that which is in the past—not a fleeting thought or a repeated promise—to remember brings the account into reality—it removes the time element and makes God’s promises relevant to NOW!  This is the power of communion.  When remembered by action it manifests reality.   This is what faith is all about—not a vague hope but a living assurance that what is stated is happening ‘today’.   “Now faith is the assurance [the confirmation, the title deed] of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].  [Hebrews 11:1 AMP]

In the early eighties God spoke to my heart with the words, “I will give you England’—from then until now He is doing just that.  When in the U.K. last week a woman called whom I had not heard from in many years.  Her words to me were Diane do you remember when the Lord spoke to you and said, ‘I will give you England”—she said I thought you had returned to the States and forgotten.  Unknown to her I had not forgotten but had been seeking to know if my work was done.  Praise God in the remembering the resurrection power has brought new life and much is happening to reaffirm the promise.  The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.  Paul’s words to Timothy about, “Making his calling and election sure…”  encourages us to keep on keeping on.

In the passing of time it is easy to forget, loose focus, fail to follow the call to the finish line—but Praise be to God He has sent the Holy Spirit to bring to our remembrance everything He has said to us.
