AUGUST 21 READING…PSALM 78
How important is it to share with the next generation to truth about the Lord, and His mighty works? Oh, we are good at making our children and young people good little religious minions, but that is not what the Lord means when He commands us to instruct our children. Religion is not the answer, knowing the Lord and His mighty works is. We need to share with the next generation that God is a promise keeping God…we it seems no one has the integrity to keep their word…God always does. God is also the One who will fight our battles, if we will get out of the way, and quit impeding Him. He was, and He is, a miracle working God. I believe He wants to do so much more in our lives…but, again, we must stop resisting His Spirit. We also must refrain from sin, our sin causes us to miss what God is doing, and what He wants to do. We have seen the glory of God working in our midst, but like the Israelites in the Old Testament, we would rather walk in the flesh, which is sin against God. Our sin brings trouble into our lives and into the lives of others, and when we have had enough we return to God, and in His grace and mercy He forgives and restores. Yet, we find on the other side of His rescue, that far too often, we return to sin. God will not abide corruption in the king’s palace or in His holy Temple…nor will He abide corruption today in our political and religious leaders. God is seeking a people like David…those who are people after the heart of God. Will He find that kind of people in us…will He find that kind of person in you?
Please share your thoughts.
