Book of Remembrance

Then those who feared and loved the Lord spoke often of him to each other. And he had a Book of Remembrance drawn up in which he recorded the names of those who feared him and loved to think about him.


“They shall be mine,” says the Lord Almighty, “in that day when I make up my jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares an obedient and dutiful son. Then you will see the difference between God’s treatment of good men and bad, between those who serve him and those who don’t.”

Malachi 3:16-18 Living Bible (TLB)


We look at watches and clocks to keep up with the time. Our day is usually mapped out in increments as we adhere to schedules and appointments in an attempt to organize and manage the 24-hour period of time that has been designated as the length of a day. We often calendar our schedules in a book or something designed to help us remember the plans we have made. We get really busy trying to control something we have no power to truly control. The Lord Almighty, who does control time, does not do timekeeping as we do, but He does keep a Book of Remembrance. In that book He keeps record of all those He knows who reverently fear Him and love to think about Him. Those who put their hope and trust in Him, He claims as His own.

When we think we are escaping notice of something we have done, we need to remember that we are being observed by our omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent Creator. Parenting involves loving children but also watching over them. Sometimes parents will eavesdrop on their conversations listening in not to be nosy, but to make sure everything is all right. Our Heavenly Father doesn't have to eavesdrop. He examines hearts and thoughts. He knows who belongs to Him.

On that day when God calls "time" and interrupts this game of life as it is, let's be on the winning side of His plan for the ages. When the Lord pulls out His Book of Remembrance, let our names be recorded in it as those He calls "mine."
