That You May Tell The Next Generation

“Walk about Zion, go around her, number her towers, consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels, that you may tell the next generation that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will guide us forever.” Psalm 48:12-14

As people who have experienced the provision and protection of the Lord, we have a responsibility to proclaim to those who come after us the legacy of our God. Our generation should pray and hope that generations after us will avoid the mistakes we made in turning our worship to created things and keep their focus on the only worthy object of worship, Christ. The way they know of His goodness is by our declaration. We have a responsibility to shout the good news of Jesus.

How are you entrusting God’s faithfulness to you in the generation coming after you? Statistics show that a significant number of students who grow up in the church will not stay faithful between the ages of 18-22. We cannot afford to lose them. We must fight for them. We must entrust the love of the Lord within them.

Paul gave his life to the Church, but he also gave his life to Timothy to build and instruct him for the future of the Church. A large responsibility of parents in the nation of Israel was teaching their children the miraculous works of God for their people, so that their generation would not turn to a false hope in times of trouble. Time and time again in scripture we see this call to entrust the wisdom given to us in the next generation. The question is, “Are you entrusting?”

Take a moment and pray for the generations that are coming after us. Further, commit to disciple and mentor someone in younger generations, entrusting to them your knowledge of the Lord.
