Isaiah 42:20

You have seen many things, but have paid no attention; your ears are open, but you hear nothing.

Have you ever heard such a clear description of the human condition? See them, but soon forget them. Hear the words, but not listening. It happened to Israel; it happens to us. We cry out in our suffering and He answers, yet we struggle to remember the next time we are in trouble. Maybe it is like learning multiplication tables. You repeat and repeat and eventually, you remember instantly that 3 X 3 = 9. If we testify often to the great ways God has helped us, if we share these things with others, if thoughts of His comfort, help and glory are always close in our minds, perhaps like 3 X 3, we will remember easily and not forget: He is faithful.
