Generations

One Generation To The Next

Psalm 145:4-7

4 One generation will commend your works to another;
they will tell of your mighty acts.

5 They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.

6 They will tell of the power of your awesome works,
and I will proclaim your great deeds.

7 They will celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

It is so vitally important that we live a life that points to God.  We need to live a life that displays God’s character, that “shouts” His goodness.  People are watching, our children are watching, the nations are watching.

I have been blessed to grow up in a home that has commended God’s work to us.  My parents have spoken of God’s majesty, told of His works, celebrated His goodness, and sung of His righteousness.  They modeled the life of God to us.  We in turn have begun to do the same for our children.  Our prayer is that their generation will do the same with more passion than we could ever imagine. I was reminded of the line in John Mark McMillan‘s newest song “Skeleton Bones” that says, “Skeleton bones stand at the sound of eternity On the lips of the found”

This past week we had the opportunity to spend some time at the beach with my folks.  As I watched my Father take our youngest daughter by the hand (She is also the youngest of the entire extended family), I was overwhelmed to see God’s promises and blessings being fulfilled before my eyes.  As we sing the praises of God to Olivia, “the sound of eternity on the lips of the found”, she will stand in faith someday!

Take some time today with someone and commend the works of God to them.  Sing of God’s praises and tell of His deeds.
