The Danger of the Fading Memory

memories fade like film

2Chron7 -9 God Speaks to Solomon

When we are on a high celebrating, all goes well, but after the glow, the high fades from memory much like film that has been exposed to the air. Perhaps that is why God came to Solomon the second time to remind him that He is God and there is no other. God came to Solomon as he slept, and that is how God sometimes speaks to us in our deep sleep where other thoughts cannot usurp our devotion to Him. God reminded him that He was the giver of blessings of all things. He was pleased and would bless IF Solomon remained faithful. He was also the “discipliner” (said nine times in Heb 12) of those whom He has called.

We need to be reminded of this principle: God blesses obedience and disciplines disobedience.
