He Doesn't Forget

This devotion may seem like a continuation of yesterday, but sometimes it seems as if those against us get the praise and adoration and we get nothing.  In Psalm 74, the author is pleading with God to remember who mocked his name, who burned down the sanctuary, who is against God.  Like God would forget.  But sometimes it does our heart good to say out loud, or write down our truest feelings.  Please God, don't forget about me!  Don't you think that when you are going through an illness, a family problem, or just feeling down?  I
God doesn't forget about us.  He is totally into you.  He knows your favorites, your wants, desires, and what makes you unique.  He is more personal to you than you will ever be toward Him.  But we should always strive for that and always praise His name.

Psalm 74:21
21 Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace;
   may the poor and needy praise your name.
