Today's story is tomorrow's glory
If history is repeated for those who fail to heed the lessons from it, I would dare to say that God will manifest Himself in ways reminiscent and consistent with His ways for those who remember them. A more sure basis for that truth is because the Scriptures say that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever,” (Heb. 13:8) and “I am the Lord, I change not,” (Mal. 3:6) and “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He not said and will He not do? Or has He spoken and will He not make it good?” (Num. 23:19)
In Psalm 44, the writer begins by reminding the Lord (as if He needs reminding) of God’s faithfulness in the past. Tomorrow, we will read of his disappointment in the present, but for today, we need to remember to remember. We must believe that history is in fact His story. And trust that some of God’s brightest revelations came on darkness nights (Ps. 44:3, also 43:3). He allows storms so that He can calm them. Without a cross there is no resurrection.
Hindsight is 20/20. Perhaps you are in the middle of a future hindsight right now. If so, act like it! Look to the past glories and deliverances in the Bible and in Christian history, and even in your own life. Trust the God who hasn’t failed yet and rest assured He will not change. Not even for you! Today’s story is tomorrow’s glory!
