• “We need Jesus!…He is our joy…without Him, the world and all it calls good, is poverty, wretchedness and woe! With Him, a wilderness is a paradise, a cottage a palace and the lowliest spot of earth a little heaven below” – Mary Winslow

A Record of Faithfulness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/08/11

“Through all my growing-up years, my mom kept a record for the family of things God did. Whenever He’d answer prayer, she’d write it down. And now my copy of that journal is really a treasure!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: That reminds me of what Moses did while the children of Israel spent forty years in the wilderness. Numbers 33 says, “At the Lord’s command Moses recorded the stages in their journey.”

I think God told Moses to keep that journal so that the Israelites would remember what they had learned. I think it was also so their children and we could learn those same lessons.

In Romans we read, “Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”

How are your children and future generations going to know what God’s done in your life unless you tell them?
