Have you ever had a clear sense that God has given you some promises? Perhaps from the Scriptures? Or from prophecy?
Exodus 6:6-8 (NIV) 6 "Therefore, say to the Israelites: 'I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. 7 I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. 8 And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the LORD.'"
God reminded Moses that He had promised to deliver the people from the Egyptian oppression. That He will prove He is with them. That He will bring them to the Promised Land.
It is crucial to recall the key promises that God may have given us. Either through the Scriptures, through the Holy Spirit or through prophetic words. It is important that we write down the prophetic words or the burdens and visions that God had given us. So that we can remind ourselves clearly one day.
We have our prophetic words written down - so that we may revisit them at a later time. Writing them down makes it clearer and allows us to assess them over time.
