God’s Scrapbook

Malachi 3: 16

Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who esteem His name.

The children of the Lord were talking and what God heard pleased him. I imagine that they were talking about the Lord God. They were probably saying how great He is and recalling all the great and wonderful things he had done for them. God heard them and was so pleased that he had a book of remembrance drafted so that these people and their love of the Lord would be memorialized. 

Don’t we all want to be remembered by the Lord for the lovely things we have said about him? How remarkable it would indeed be to move God to the point that he commands a book to be written about us. It is like a scrapbook or a photo album. It is something so precious to the Lord that he wants to capture it in his memory book. Let us be moved by this verse and endeavor to proclaim God’s goodness to one another. Let us encourage one another and praise the Lord in one uplifted voice.
