God showed me a trophy cabinet full of cups and trophies and medals that had been won by a sports star. These were the memories of what this sportsperson once achieved and once could achieve. Now, they were mere mementos.
God says, “many of My people have trophy cabinets that they keep in their hearts, full of mementos. These are the memories of the things that I have done for them in the past; times of miracles and provision. But I am not like the sportsman, whose strength fails and whose abilities are eaten away by age.
Why look back at what I did yesterday and long for the excitement of that era? I am here for you now. I am the eternal God, and I am the God of now! My mercies are new every morning. Of the increase of my government and peace there is no end. (Isaiah 6:9)
So I say to you, ‘look ahead expectantly for what I will do for you and in you. Remember what I did in the past, but do not dwell there. Expect Me to do more today and tomorrow. I am the God of increase and I am the God of more than enough. Expect your miracle.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
Then Joshua said to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you.”
