Why have a Conversation Log?
1. God is always speaking to you!
He loves you! He has good things for you - things to tell you, teach you, lead you to. If you believe what God says to you is important… you will write it down! Your Conversation Log captures every conversation you have with God, yourself, or others through which God will give you discernment, direction and specific instruction for every area of your life.
See PRISM Topic: Write It Down and PRISM Topic: Give An Account. You will be shocked by what God’s Word says about “Write It Down.” That’s why you need a Conversation Log so you can write down the things He says and the ways God speaks to you. Develop this critical habit in your life – Write It Down!
Jer 30:2 - This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you.’
2. Your Conversation Log helps you keep God’s Word to you – from falling to the ground.
I Sam 3:19 – “The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up, and he let none of his words fall to the ground.” Samuel valued God's Word so highly that he let not one word fall to the ground. And as a result, God continued to reveal himself to Samuel through his Word.
Luke 2:19 - But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Mary did the same thing. She didn't let a word fall to the ground, she pondered the things God said to her - in her heart.
When God speaks to you - value it highly, write it down so you can remember it, and come back to it. (Your Conversation Log Index in your Insert #2 Monthly Insert - helps you do this).
3. Your Conversation Log helps you remember what God told you so you will be faithful to do it!
I Sam 2:35 - I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who will do according to all that is in my heart and mind... Your Conversation Log will enable you to remember what God told you - so you can do all that is in God's heart and mind for you to do. For Samuel, preserving God's Word was the key to him doing it!
4. Your Conversation Log helps fix His Word to you - in your heart and mind.
Deut 11:18-21 - “Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that God swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.” Your Insert #2 – Monthly Insert helps you Index what God told you through PiVAT, PRISM and Conversations; so it will be easy to remember it, review it, rehearse it, talk about it, and Do It!
5.Your Conversation Log will remind you of the things God said to you that you should be thinking and doing.
James 1:23-25 - Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it - he will be blessed in what he does. Your Conversation Log Index lets you come back to these quickly.
6. Your Conversation Log gives you a wonderful tool to praise or pray through!
Remembering what God said and did - builds your faith! Psalms 9:1 - I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
Psalms 9:10 - Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
The Name of the LORD - goes beyond the names like Jehovah or Yaweh - For what Hebrew or English Word could capture, describe or contain Him? The Hebrew word ‘shem’ (Name) of the LORD that is to be praised - means not just what He is called, it also includes ALL of His power, authority, reputation, and renown. It includes not only the sum of who He is; His powerful attributes, but also ALL THAT He has done and ALL THAT He will still do.
In other words: His full track record, His renown (past, present and future) which is continuing in this day! So His NAME includes: not just speaking the worlds into order, not just parting the Red Sea, not just healing the sick and raising the dead - it also includes His NAMES, His renown, His track record of faithfulness and miracles in YOUR life. Not just Abraham Isaac & Jacob, but this generation, this nation, what He is doing in you - your life, your situation!
Your Conversation Log captures this as a permanent record, easily and quickly reviewed and remembered. His Name will increase! You will see it. You will remember it by keeping it always before you in your Conversation Log - so you will continue to stand in Awe of His Great Name.
7. Your Conversation Log helps you share your testimony and encourage others through what God has revealed to you, and what God has done in your life.
Hebrews 10:24 - And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love(obedience) and good deeds.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 - Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

You can teach them to your children, and the testimony of God’s faithfulness in your life will remain even after you are gone.

Your life will become a mighty praise and testimony to the One and Only Faithful and True God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.
