The Director of the Women’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost, Deaconess Grace Lucy Yeboah-Asuamah, has assured Christians that God has remembrance for them no matter the situations and circumstances they might find themselves.
During a live broadcast of the Sunday Twi Service on PENT TV recently, Deaconess Yeboah-Asuamah in a sermon on the topic, “God Remembers” based on Isaiah 38:1-6, said that unlike man, God does not lose His memory, hence His remembrance for His people is forever sure.
She remarked that, though a mother has compassion for her nursing child, she might forget him since she is human, adding, “Human beings remember only when someone has been good and kind to them and even, that remembrance is ephemeral (short-lived).”
She, however, stressed that God never forgets about His children as they are always in His memory.
“God has inscribed us on the palm of His hands and nothing can cause us to go from His memory because our walls are continually before Him,” she explained.
According to the Women’s Director, those in God’s memory receive all His fullness, have solutions to their problems, and their names and songs also change. Such persons, she said, receive hope and good health. “God’s remembrance brings happiness and sets one’s heart at ease,” she added.
Explaining the certitude of God’s remembrance for His people regardless of their plights, Deaconess Yeboah-Asuamah stated emphatically that Christians, by virtue of their acceptance and belief in Christ Jesus, have a covenant with God, saying, “With this covenant sealed with the blood of Jesus, God cannot forget us.”
She, thus, urged all unbelievers to come to faith in Christ Jesus to be part of the covenant, cautioning that, “those who are not part of the covenant may be out of God’s memory.”
Referring to the stories of King Hezekiah, Hannah and Zachariah whom God remembered in their respective seemingly hopeless situations after they had prayed, the Women’s Director was emphatic that God hears and remembers His children whenever they petition Him over their predicaments.
“Beloved, we serve a living God, who is attentive and responsive to the supplications of His people. Let us talk to Him in prayer about our problems and He will surely hear us. He will not forsake or disappoint us because we are not out of His memory. All that we need to do is to serve Him wholeheartedly,” she assured all Christians while entreating them not to trust in and rely on frail mortals.
Deaconess Grace Lucy Yeboah-Asuamah observed that whoever receives divine visitation has their reproach and disgrace taken away (Luke 1:25). She, therefore, admonished believers not to doubt the visitation and the promises of God.
“We must fully trust in the Lord God so that we can hear clearly when He speaks to us as we believe Him for miracles,” she concluded.
