Isaiah 43:26
“Put me in remembrance; let us plead together; declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”

What a privilege we have to be able to remind God and declare to him what he has done for us.  God is all knowing so it’s not that he doesn’t know, therefore I believe that our reminding him is not so much for his benefit as it is for ours.

When God told Hezekiah to set his house in order because he was about to die, Hezekiah turned his faced to the wall and began to remind God of how he walked before him in truth and with a perfect heart and had done that which was good in his sight.  God heard him and added fifteen years to his life (2 Kings 20:1-11).

Hezekiah brought up all that he had done before God because under the old covenant the blessing was released based on man’s ability to keep the law (I guess Hezekiah thought he did a pretty good job of it. Thank God for mercy and grace). However, after Hezekiah recovered he didn’t give glory to God for his healing.  2 Chronicles 32:25 says, “But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up; therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem.”

Today, when we put God in remembrance, when we plead together and declare unto Him, it’s all about what He has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Because it’s not by our works lest we would boast just as Hezekiah did but it is the gift of God, Jesus Christ (Eph 2:8-9).

Whatever you may be facing in your body, finances, or home, put God in remembrance of the finish work of Calvary.  Make your case with God based on what Jesus Christ has done for you and not on what you’ve done.  In doing so grace is released for your situation, God is glorified in His Son and Christ is glorified in you.
