“That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children, that they should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments, and not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that did not prepare its heart and whose spirit was not faithful to God.” (Psalm 78:6-8)
Generation after generation comes and they forget the ways of the Lord that the faithful taught them. Yet there always remains the remnant, who walk with the Lord. Those who walk in the ways of the Lord have confidence, for the promises of the Lord are upon them. Be not as those in the world who walk in the ways of the world, but as one who knows that the Word of the Lord is forever.
Lord, I see Your hand on generation after generation. There are those who have always hated You and Your ways and scoff at those who walk with You. Their influence in strong upon those of weak flesh. Help me be one who trusts in You that I may overcome the temptations of this world and see in You the hope for every generation. Guide me in Your ways that I may walk with You.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead me in the way I should go. Guide me according to Your Word to live into the life You have set before me and walk according to the changeless ways established in the beginning. Help me now and always to live into the life to which You have called me that I may hold fast to Your promises. Be my Savior, Lord Jesus. Amen.
