We draw on our memories to function in life. If the memories we store are based on a pessimistic view of life, we won’t function according to God’s plan.
The good news is we have the power to keep or reject the memories we store. God views situations based on opportunity. Seeing things from God’s view produces good memories; seeing things from a negative or pessimistic view produces dark memories. When Jesus saw fish, He saw abundance.
Matthew 6:23 points out that our eyes are like lamps – if our eyes are good, light will flow from the lamp; if our eyes are bad, the lamp will only give off darkness. How we view life determines the quality and nature of the memories we store.
Following God’s plan for our life means we should view situations based on opportunities instead of misfortunes.
Remember: Memories are the bank account of life where we make deposits daily. Although we can’t be separated from our memories, we can choose which ones we let influence our daily lives.
