And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out of this place.”
Leviticus 26:42-45 [ http://iz3.me/cAFS1z3Fe1A1 ]
The people of God are called to be “rememberers.” The Jews were to “remember the Sabbath day” (Exodus 20:8), their forefathers (Exodus 32:13), “all the commandments of the LORD” (Numbers 15:39), their spiritual rebellion against God (Deuteronomy 9:7), and God’s covenant and “marvelous works” (1 Chronicles 16:12, 15). Most of all, God’s people in both Testaments are to remember His redemptive work: the Exodus in the Old Testament (Exodus 13:3) and Christ’s crucifixion in the New (Luke 22:19). Memories are a foundation on which we build for the future.

February is an excellent month in which to pull out your journal, diary, or day planner and review God’s activity in your life during 2013. There was no doubt blessing, and there may have been correction. There was no doubt provision, but there might also have been testing. But above all, there will be faithfulness to remember: “Forget not all His benefits” (Psalm 103:2).
Let February be a quiet time in which to remember all God has done in your life as you look toward 2014.
When you drink from the stream, remember the spring.
