Good morning.

When we experience “mountain top” seasons of seeing God’s faithfulness, we need to store up the truth of our experience and save it for later. When you experience God’s faithfulness in your life, take a step back and store it up as treasure in your heart.

There’s a moment in the midst of the busyness of the Christmas night when the Bible notes that, "Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Picture Mary taking a step back and soaking up every detail. Her baby boy had arrived. Joseph was still by her side. A group of shepherds showed up with a story of angels rejoicing over Jesus, and they couldn’t help but tell the whole town. Everyone was celebrating the miracle of her Son. It was a precious moment of God’s faithfulness, and she stored it up in her heart.

We store up things for a reason. The time will come when we need to turn to the supply we’ve saved, to sustain us when we’re in need of it. When the tough days come, as they did with Mary as she stood at the foot of the cross looking up at the crucified Saviour of the world, we will be able to endure.

Remember, "The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Have a wonderful day storing up good memories of God's faithfulness to you.
