//In other words, Hes saying, Remind Me. //

as if we need to remind God of His word.

God is saying, Remember what i said, then let's debate.
---aka on 11/13/11


ISAIAH 43:26

26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
What does God mean when He says, Put Me in remembrance? In other words, Hes saying, Remind Me. Now, if God tells me to remind Him of something, Im going to remind Him!
---Olufemi on 11/12/11


Interesting blog, and I have questioned some of the same things as others here. Micha gave a good example. Key for me is that we are to be agreeing with God, what He has said/revealed, and speak it in faith.1jn 5:14-15 " This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears uswhatever we askwe know that we have what we asked of him." I'm concerned about Word of Faith teachings as are others, one difference, we simply agree/say what He has already said. We are not telling God anything He doesnt already know, and certainly not telling Him what to do, as if we are god. We are always to be submitted to Him, we are nothing, He is all.

Remind GOD? I looked anyway, for both of us.
This may not be the one below but, it interesting.(command)Couple more attached to "word".
Isaiah 45:11
Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
Psalm 119:11
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Psalm 147:19
He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
Isaiah 9:8
The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

dolores--
You may "put the Father in remembrance of his word" if you want, but He would "remember" His WORD and be truthful to it, even if you didn't "remind" Him. WE are the ones who need to be reminded and to be assured that God will perform according to His will.
---Donna66 on 7/9/11


The answer is found in the book Of Isaiah Chapter 43 Verse 26 . I believe that when we pray we should " put the Father in remembrance of his word, God encourages us to to just that because God will never deny his word. He is not a man that he should lie so I don't see the problem of telling God what he said. Hope this helps you

Neh 1:5,8,9 And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments...Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, [If] ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: But [if] ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them, though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, [yet] will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.
---micha9344 on 1/3/11


candice, God knowing all things is not the samething as God having his attention focused on everything that is past and present and future simultaneously. Thus when we tell God to remember some word that he has spoken in the past, this is not the samething as reminding him of something that he already knows, but instead it is bringing his attention back to that particular historical occurrence while we are talking to him presently.
---Eloy on 1/3/11




God is God, no one needs to remind him of what he spoke!
---candice on 1/3/11


God's people speak scriptures daily because Christ dwells in us and his words dwell in us, but the carnal and unsaved man speak scriptures sinuously because God's word is Not has no place in them.

Darlene, Nehemiah 1:8-11+ Psalm 119:49.
---Eloy on 1/3/11


Read the Gospels.

The only ones who quoted the Scriptures to Jesus were Pharisees and demons.
---Cluny on 1/2/11


\\ And when you go to stating your standing on his word that word gives you firm standing in his eyes.\\

This statement seems to suggest you think that God experiences reality as a succession of events like we do, rather than seeing things as they really are.
---Cluny on 1/2/11


At times when we are talking to Jesus, and we are seeking his mercy and his attention we will say to him, "Remember your word you said...", as in Nehemiah's and David's prayings in Nehemiah 1:8-11+ Psalm 119:49.

To my understanding-

Confessing His Word-declares-we believe it and are in agreement with it.

Rom 9:9-10
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and Believe in thine heart that God hath raised HIM from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
---
If we are confessing HIS WORD-believing it-He acts on HIS WORD-confirming it.
Agreement to truth.

If what we confess is not His truth-no agreement is made from Him-no confirming is performed-by Him.
We will be acting out our own works-out of our own will-not His will.

I am looking for the same verse and it does exist! Have you find it? It says in so many words that we should remember God to His promises.
---Nicolene on 10/11/10


Isn't it actually more like reminding YOURSELF of His word? He doesn't forget His word or His promises. But we often do.
Repeating His Word gives us great strength.

Eph 6:16-17 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
---Donna66 on 2/16/10


Of course God knows his own word. And when you go to stating your standing on his word that word gives you firm standing in his eyes. Put another way, God wants to be involved in your problems. And the way he wants to be involved is through your reliance on his word. I believe more reliance on God's Word, a better understanding of God's Word brings with it success and peace of mind.

Isaiah 43:25-26
Am That blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake,and will not remember thy sins.Put Me in remembrance,let us plead together,declare that thou mayest be justified.[These are GOD'S WORDS]

What does this mean?
Phil2:11-Rom10:9-10
That if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus(GOD'S WORD)
You will be confessing HIS WORDS to Him.
His Word -as Mediator[Jesus]with our mouth confession is made unto salvation: the agreement.

---char on 2/11/10


God does not need to be reminded of his word.
His spoken word is already in the mode to do whatever it says. The word spoken out loud is for our benefit to encourage us to believe it or speak it over a situation because it already has power over the situation. God sends his word and it accomplishes what he sends it to do. But it is not to be used like a magic incantation. or saying it in a repetitious manner. You may remind God that you believe his word and that you are standing on it's promise. The Bible says if you let the word of Jesus live in you in, other words live by that word, you can ask the Father anything and he will give it to you.

Concerning what has been discussed here the following seems to be correct.

We(you and I as Christians) can have full confidence in God's Word. We can realistically expect God to keep his word.
He has given us his word in order to lay out certain patterns which he himself Almighty God will follow, we have but to use his own words to describe what he will do.

Someone just asked me the same question, I looked & looked & still couldn't find it either.
---bre on 11/27/09


Mark V thanks that confirms what I understood it to mean. The created can ask the Creator for the sake of understanding and information but under no circumstances is the created to question God's authority. As you said the child doesn't question the Parent,but can ask concerning Parents plans and future concerning the family. This goes along the lines of New Testament, Luke 11:9 And I say unto you,ask,and it shall be given you,seek and ye shall find,knock,and it shall opened unto you. We are to be humble and acquiesce to God's authority,power and wisdom,and never usurp his place as Lord and Master. No we aren't to ever command God,but we have the privilege,the benefit of searching and praying for understanding and God will enlighten us.
---Darlene_1 on 9/16/09


Darline 2 continue:
And in the verse where "Command Me" (The word is Tsawah) is spoken the meaning means that God is not to be questioned regarding the work of His creative hands. They can ask and they will be told, but not question Him. Found this anwsers in Lexical aids concerning those passages and words.
Which is what some have said already in part. Peace I leave you.
---MarkV. on 9/12/09


Darline, I have a different reason why those words were said. Isa. 45:9-10 begans with "Woe to him" This figures the Potter and the clay and of parent and child show how absured it is to contend with God over His plans for the future. This anticipated the objections by the Jews against,
1. their captivity and restoration by a pagan king, and
2.ultimately God's soverign plan to redeem Gentiles as well as Jews worldwide from v. 8 (Rom. 9:20-24).
Verse 11. "Ask Me of things to come" Here the Lord commands Israel to seek information about what He will do for the nation in the future, when people do ask, He will reveal it.

Mima and Darlene --

Thanks to both of you for your insights on the verse. Both ideas make sense to me.
---Donna66 on 9/11/09


---Donna66 this last phrase "command ye me" could refer to that time when we are in the spirit. When a person is in the spirit they sense it, they feel a closeness, they feel that they're somehow on the inside standing very close to the Lord. I once was praying in a church when a lady ran up to me and asked me to pray for her sister, Sister had extremely high blood pressure, I did pray for the sister and as I did I felt the prayer was immediately answered. This was confirmed the next day. When I asked the lady who brought her sister to me what happened she said, I knew you were in the spirit realm and I knew if you pray for her she would be healed.
---mima on 9/11/09


Thank you all for the input. Ok,he doesn't mean what it looks like to us. I searched and found that what we see as commanding was actually a question he ask,look at the words before he said command,they too are a question,what appears to be telling us to command God is really God saying I made Heaven and Earth created mankind why would you think you can command me to do anything. Bottom line created doesn't order the Creator around. Mima thanks for what you said about how to "activate" got me to digging into scriptures to fully understand what the verse means. At last i think I do.
---Darlene_1 on 9/11/09


Agreed, Mima. I've puzzled over the last phrase in that verse, too. Some Word of Faith person probably uses, teaches, this verse a lot, since it conjures a picture of us giving orders to God. (Could it be a misinterpretation of the old English? I dunno).

But just a we don't give orders to God, we don't need to remind Him of anything He has said, as if He was a forgetful old man. But He no doubt approves when we do... because it means we are reminding ourselves!

And WE need frequent reminders!

---mima on 9/11/09


When reminding God of his own word I always like to say in prayer," now father you know this is your promise, these are your words, and I really believe I'm on solid ground here.
I realize that I'm praying this way in order to hear myself pray.
I might just add here, that I have seen many prayers answered by asking the father to direct my angels to do this or that!!! I am strongly under the influence that our angels are ministering spirits unto us. Helpers if you will!!!

Isiah 43:26 says, "Put Me in remembrance; Let us contend together;" God has a wonderful memory, but the Lord isn't offended by us reminding him. Example: Jacob reminded God of the promises He made to Abraham and Isaac. Genesis 32: 9, 12. 1 John 5:14, tells us that when we pray His will He hears our prayers and answers them. Put your faith in the Lord, quote and claim Scriptures, just like Jesus did during His temptation. Matthew 4 He is bound by His Word! So remind Him of it.

There is a difference between reciting the word to speak with understanding as opposed to demanding promises, thinking God is forgetful, or naming and claiming it. Many may only anger him with their words and receive in this life prior to being sent to hell by their own arogant mouth.
---Frank on 7/9/06


Rebecca, that does not answer the question I asked you.

You said you do not remind God about His word. You said you let Him know what His word says.

So one can imagine your prayer: "Now God you know that I know that you know that I know what you said..."

Have you NEVER prayed a sick person "Father your word says "By His stripes we are healed..."" "
Or in the face of a need, "Father you promised to supply our every need..." etc?

Bruce; I let God know that I know what his word says because, I know that it is a vow to me from him. If a person doesn't know the word, then God hasn't made a vow to that person, because they don't know his word.
---Rebecca_D on 3/18/06


In a way this is tied up with the fact that God knows all. He knows our desires, and our needs, He knows the needs of the world, and He knows how our missionaries need His help. If He knows all this, why do we need to pray? If he has already decided how to deal with a certain issue, why do we even need to ask Him to do anything?
Perhaps it is to keep us in close touch with God, to chat and commune with Him, and so HE can tell US what WE should be doing. about these things.

My question still is, what is the difference between letting God know you know what his word says and reminding God about what his word says?
---Bruce5656 on 3/14/06


Isaiah 45:11, "Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me."

The word command is from the Hebrew "tsavah" and it the principle meaning is - to give charge over, appoint. This gives a different connotation to the verse than has been suggested here.

I believe God wants us to express confidence in his word. Not pray for what is clearly stated. For if it is clearly stated it is already given. Once after 10 years of praying in this manner about a man's salvation, suddenly the man except the Lord turned 180, and tells all who will listen that he loves me. Now I didn't pray for that result. And you would have to know the man, a real bruiser he-man type to understand how funny this is.

On the one hand you say that you don't remind God of what He said yet you say "I do let God know what his word says." What is the difference?

It isn't in the bible. I don't remind God what he has said, he knows what he said. But I do let God know that I know what his word says. And when a person comes to the knowledge of God's word, God must stick with what he said. God said that he will never leave nor forsake us, once we come to the knowledge of that, he is obligated to do what he said he would do.
---Rebecca_D on 3/13/06


I've heard Christians pray this way ( I've probably done it myself) but I don't think it can be backed up Biblically. Obviously, GOD doesn't need to be REMINDED of anything. What they really are saying is " God, I remember your word that says....please do what you've said... (i.e. what I believe You really meant.) It's a way to "prove" that what they are asking is really God's will.
---Donna on 3/13/06


I don't believe you will find a verse that tells you to pray that way. What you will find is examples of people praying that God's word might be found true etc.
