O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people …
Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders …
(Psalms 105: 1, 5)

Sonny and Cher sang, “And the beat goes on …” (it’s even written on Sonny’s tombstone). It’s more than a catchy lyric, it’s the goal for the rhythm of our faith – that it goes on. It endures. It pulses steady; undaunted by the clamoring static screeching from Satan and his followers. We live in a noisy world with so many voices – but the gospel of Christ comes with a pure sound that sings straight to our soul when we listen with our spiritual ears.

So, how do we keep our faith tuned up and tuned in to Him? Each person has his/her own way to keep the beat – and we can all learn from each other. I’d like to share a holy habit that keep my soul tapping, from Psalms 105: 1 and 5:

O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people …
Remember his marvelous works that he hath done …

Remember His works … Keeping Him and His works in the forefront of our mind takes conscious effort. Satan would rather we thought about something else – anything else. He’d like us distracted and glazed over. In “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis, one of Satan’s workers says, “It is funny how mortals always picture us putting things into their minds; in reality our best work is done by keeping things out.” To combat that devilish lure, we remember. We keep Him in – in our thoughts and in us.

 In this scripture verse we receiving instruction to remember the marvelous works He has done. To do that, we first must first be able to identify His marvelous works. We can find His wonders in the Holy Books as well as in our holy lives. Seek and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7). It takes opening our spiritual eyes, to see His hand in our lives – but it is there. He is there. He embeds lessons and love within every major trial, as well as within the small and simple things too. I like to start off my day with a prayer, giving thanks and calling upon His name, and asking to see His lessons in my life. When I start the day with Him in mind, and strive to keep Him centered and in the forefront of my vision throughout the day, I find I am never alone. I also can more clearly decipher between what really matters and what doesn’t. I even see meaning in the mundane and monotonous – and it is marvelous!

Once we can see Him and His deeds, we must remember and make it known. We thank Him through prayer, and we also glorify Him as we speak up and share. Remembering and repeating our spiritual insights not only multiplies the goodness, it deepens the goodness of our faith. It’s a beautiful win-win spiritual pattern, created perfectly by Him. As we share His sweet song, our faith inevitably wraps its roots around the radio channel that tunes into His rhythms – holding it steadily in place.

Invitation: Look for His love and lessons in your life today. He is there. Then remember to share what you see. Sharing deepens our faith and might be exactly what someone else needs to hear.

Further study:

Mark 5:19: “Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.”

Matthew 13:16 “But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
