Memory Traces of God?

Memory Traces of God?

Do you have engrams, memory traces, of God? Has God touched you in such a way that there’s been a physical alteration in your living neural system? I hope so. Just like the men who fought along Saul: Along with him went courageous men whose hearts God had touched. (1 Sam. 10:26, CEB)

When we have been touched by God, we are marked by God for good.
When we have experienced God’s love and grace,
our brains will always carry sweet memory traces of God.
When we have been touched by God,
our spiritual eyes open to see who God really is and who we really are.
And suddenly this relationship with God changes everything.

God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him! (Romans 8:16-17, MSG)

The world does not understand why we are ready to do anything for God.
They don’t have engrams of God.
The world does not understand why are willing to obey God.
They don’t have memory traces of God.
The world does not understand why we insist God is the best thing that has ever happened to us.
They have not been touched by God.

“I will ask the Father, and he will send another Companion, who will be with you forever. This Companion is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world can’t receive because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. You know him, because he lives with you and will be with you. “I won’t leave you as orphans. I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Because I live, you will live too. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commandments and keeps them loves me. Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.” (John 14:16-21, CEB)

How can you become a person whose heart has God touched?
Pray, invite God into your heart.
How can you be marked by God?
Pray, embrace His grace.
How can you have memory traces of God?
Pray, abide in Him.

 

Gracious God,
We come to you in awe of you.
You are so much beyond our understanding.
You have always been and you will always be.
You are mighty and powerful.
Yet you love us dearly.
Be praised forever and ever.
Come and abide in our hearts.
Bind us to you with thousands of engrams!
Mark ourselves to you forever!
Carve your name into our hearts!
So that we would live and move only in you.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen
