Robert Traill (Stedfast Adherence to the Profession of our Faith), Works 3:57:

There are some rash folks that promise a great deal more than they perform, because they forget a great deal of what they promised. Our Lord never forgets a word of his promise. Whenever he has made a promise to a believer, it is fixed perpetually in his heart. Forgetfulness is not to be ascribed to God. I know believers sometimes, in fits of unbelief, have charged God this way: Hath God forgotten to be gracious? Will the promise fail for evermore? So in the Hebrew, Ps. 77:7. But that is the infirmity of the speaker. We find sometimes also, the people of God putting God in mind of his promises; yea the Lord calling them so to do: Put me in remembrance, Isa. 43:26. But this putting God in remembrance is required of us, and to be performed by us, not to help God’s memory, but to exercise our faith.
