Remembering His Works
By CBM National intern, Mark Martens –
Throughout the Psalms, the writers are constantly remembering and praising God for the things He has done. Psalms 105:1-2 is one great example of this.
“Give thanks to Yahweh, call on His name; proclaim His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell about all His wonderful works.”(HCSB)
When I read over these verses while doing my devotions, I started looking back over the past couple of years. It was really awesome to remember how God worked in and blessed me. In fact, it was so encouraging that I would like to share some of these experiences with you. This past summer, at CBM’s Camp Grace, I was given the opportunity to be the summer program director, which was totally unexpected. This experience really helped start growing and shaping me into the man God is making me today. Also, over that summer, God reaffirmed His call on my life to go into full-time camping ministry. That fall, I started a one year internship with Children’s Bible Ministries and it has been amazing. The first four months, I was at CBM Headquarters learning so much from my directors, speakers/teachers, and countless experiences. Now, I am on my second camp rotation. These rotations have been such a blessing because I get to become a part of a camp, learn from the different staff members about the aspects of camp ministry, and then I get to put that knowledge into practice.
So, it really is important to remember the things the Lord has done in our lives. But not only that, it is just as important to tell others about what God is doing in your life and praise Him! It will be a huge encouragement not only to yourself, but also to the people you interact with. And who knows, maybe these conversations will allow you to share the Gospel with someone. So as you go about your day don’t forget to remember and “tell about all His wonderful works.”
