God’s memory is perfect, because God is perfect. But the most beautiful thing about His memory is that He chooses to remember us, and in His remembering, to help us.
God had flooded the earth as a discipline for the hideous sin and rebellion of man. But he spared Noah and his family. On the ark for 40 days, God remembered, i.e., looked with affection, at Noah and began the process of removing the water and preparing a place for Noah, his family, and the animals He had created and spared.
As they left the ark, Noah built an altar and worshiped the Lord, which was a blessing to God. Then notice the conversation between Noah and God:
God could blot us from His memory. He could choose to never bless us again. But that is not our God.
In His mercy, He remembers you and every promise He has ever made to you. The question is, do you remember Him? Will you remember His grace and return to Him? Will you remember, this year, to love, serve, and worship Him with all your heart, and mind, and soul, and strength?
But, in your thoughts of God, never forget this: God remembers.
