“Do as thou hast said, that thy name may be magnified forever” (1 Chronicles 17:23-24).
Every promise of Scripture is a writing of God, which may be pleaded before Him with this reasonable request: “Do as Thou hast said.” The Creator will not cheat His creature who depends upon His truth; and far more, the Heavenly Father will not break His word to His own child.
“Remember the Word unto Thy servant, on which Thou hast caused me to hope,” is most prevalent pleading. It is a double argument: it is Thy Word. Wilt Thou not keep it? Why hast Thou spoken of it, if Thou wilt not make it good. Thou hast caused me to hope in it, wilt Thou disappoint the hope which Thou has Thyself begotten in me? — C. H. Spurgeon
Remember the word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.
There are many promises of God that I have not yet received. I don’t know if I have lost some, or most of them, because of my disobedience or sin. Or, it is just that the LORD is taking His time to refine my faith. I don’t know. But in these times of affliction, these are the words that I am uttering often… LORD, please remember the word You gave to me, to Your servant… the word that You have caused me to hope. It is the only comfort I have in my affliction, for Your word has given me life. Please, LORD, remember Your word to Your servant.
