Then Peter remembered what he had said

Then Peter remembered what he had said 

At that moment, Jesus turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered what he had said—“Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny me three times.”  And Peter walked out of the courtyard, crying bitterly.” Luke 22:61-62 (TLB) 
Peter remembered. 
Do You? 
How many times have you been warned of God to desist from what is not pleasing to Him?
 When you do remember what action does it provoke in you? 
When Peter recalled he wept bitterly, and that led him to true repentance. 
Balaam was warned by God not to go and curse Israel.
 “ And God said to Balaam, “You shall not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.” Numbers 22:12 However, the greed in his heart did not make him listen 
Even when the donkey spoke? (Numbers 22:22-28)
 Are you still continuing in that thing that God has warned you not to do? 
Do you still rationalize and beat the “donkey” that is speaking to you? 
The Prodigal son started eating with the pigs, and he remembered.
 “Humiliated, the son finally realized what he was doing, and he thought, ‘There are many workers at my father’s house who have all the food they want with plenty to spare. They lack nothing. Why am I here dying of hunger, feeding these pigs and eating their slop? I want to go back home to my father’s house, and I’ll say to him, “Father, I was wrong. I have sinned against you. I’ll never be worthy of being called your son. Please, Father, just treat me like one of your employees.”’ Luke 15: 17-19(TPT). 
Where are you today? 
What are you doing?
 Let your remembrance of the Word of God propel you in the right direction. 
Peter repented and still become what God has destined for him. 
The prodigal son too turned around and was celebrated. 
Balaam’s greed and wrong association eventually killed him. Joshua 13: 22 

What are you doing with what you remember?
