GOD’S BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name (Malachi 3:16)
God is detailed and meticulous about records. He’s got several books in heaven (Revelation 20:12) and He records all our works here on earth. Some of those books will be opened on the day of judgment. (Daniel 7:10), but there’s one which is opened from time to time, that’s His book of remembrance.
In the opening Scripture, we read that those who feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name and spoke about Him often, had a book of remembrance written for them in the presence of God. In other words, these people meditated upon His Name and because their minds were full of God’s thoughts, they spoke the right words frequently one to another. They made the right confessions of faith in His Name; as they did that in the earth, the Lord hearkened and heard it. Consequently, their names were entered into His book of remembrance.
Periodically, when that book is opened, all their confessions are released unto them! Hallelujah!
So while, you’re there in your closet speaking forth the Word of God in faith, it may seem like nothing is changing, but don’t stop, for it’s being recorded in God’s book of remembrance. In the course of time, that book will be opened and the rain of blessings you’ve been expecting will come pouring down all at once. Keep talking the Word and filling up your pages of that book with your faith-declarations. Ecclesiastes 11:3 says, “if the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth.” Your faith-filled confessions will surely produce for you, a harvest of blessings at the appointed time.
