God doesn’t forget anything. And yet throughout the Old Testament we see these heroes of faith reminding God about things. “Hey, don’t destroy us! Remember you promised us this and remember you said that?” “God, didn’t do this? Didn’t you do that?” There are countless examples of when God was reminded of His promises by His people. I think we continue to do this when we sing songs about His faithfulness. Not because He needs to be reminded, but because we do.
This is one of my favorite songs to sing to remind God that He is always faithful…. or to remind me that He is.
