HOLLY FURTICK SERMON DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER : Pastor Victoria Osteen said, I am going to confess something to you, I am a forgetful person, it’s really funny the things that we can forget like awhile back I left my tip, my wedding ring at the tanning bed, I haven’t told my husband, he just found out I was a go to the tanning bed right one time I forgot, there are a lot of things we ought to remember that we forget and a lot of things we ought to forget that we remember.
The title of my sermon tonight don’t forget to remember, I wonder how much I could accomplish if I never forgot anything, like we live in the day and time where memories should be sharper than ever right, we have iCal and we have subscribe and stays and we have a nice woman named Alexa who is there to help us with anything that we should need, we can save, we have thousands of pictures on our computers for memories and we have we should have all this freed up brain space right because we can now even be a set reminders for things that we no longer need to memorise. We can just say call Steven and you don’t even have to know your husband’s phone number anymore, you don’t have to know people’s addresses, you don’t have to know directions on how to get somewhere but still we forget the things that we need to remember.
We remember the things that we wish we could forget like three eight two four one zero that was my phone number, when I was like five years old still taking up space in my brain.
Pastor Holly Furtick said, I love this scripture it’s in Psalm 103 it says, praise the Lord oh my soul, all my inmost being praise His Holy Name, praise the Lord my soul and forget not all his benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion who satisfies your desires with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the Eagles.
Forget not all his benefits, what if we actually lived each day like this, what if we were really able to shake free of the shame of our past and live like our sins were forgiven, how much more confidence would I have, if I really believed that I was crowned with love and compassion, I wouldn’t have to compare myself to anyone because I would walk around and I had a crown on my head what is, no matter how dark my situation became, I was able to live like I knew that he satisfies all of my desires.
I know that many of you came here where you’re watching online and you’re tired or you’re afraid or you’re anxious or you’re disappointed because the very thing that you’ve hoped for the very thing that you have fought for, prayed for has not happened and you feel ready to give up in this moment.
I understand that when you’re faced with a great disappointment, that it’s almost impossible to remember that there is one who satisfies your desires with good things and renews your youth like the Eagles and I know that many of you did come here tonight hoping that maybe God would just reveal something to you.
Pastor Holly Furtick says, I’m praying tonight that God would simply remind us that he is with us, so we do not forget all his benefits in our lives.
