The Next Generation
Psalm 71:17-19 O GOD, You have taught me from my youth; and I still declare Your wondrous deeds. And even when I am old and gray, O GOD, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come. For Your righteousness, O GOD, reaches to the heavens, You have done great things; O GOD, who is like You? What a calling! Not just for those who pastor or evangelize. This is for every mother, father, grand parent or mature christian. Until I declare You to my children and my grandchildren Lord! I need to pass on what God has done for me to those younger in years and younger in their faith. God is always faithful, He always provides, always loves, leads and guides. He shows up again and again! His mercy and grace are never failing and He pours it out on us so lavishly. I must tell of His goodness so others can see and know that He is God, there is proof in my life of how richly He blesses.This is my prayer as well, that I can declare to the next generation how mighty my GOD is and how He always comes through for me.It is never about what I have done, it is despite what I have done and only because of His great love for me, for His children, that He shows Himself all merciful and steadfast.
