Psalms 78-80: Tell of The Glorious Deeds of the Lord
In Psalm 78, Asaph reminds us how important it is that we tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord.
“Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth! I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old, things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonders that He has done.
Why is it important that we tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord? “…so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God…” (78:7).
I can’t express how important it is that we pass on to future generations, to our children and our children’s children, what God has done in our lifetime and the “…things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us” (78:3).
It’s important that our children, their children, and the generations that follow, understand how God has worked in our lives. They need to know of “…the glorious deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonders that He has done” (78:4).
We are His testimony, and it is our responsibility to tell of His ways and to teach them to the next generation and the generation after them.
Why is this so important? So that the generations to come know where to place their hope. They need to know that they can place their hope in God, a God Who is capable of performing glorious deeds, a God of might and wonder!
So, what can you share today with the next generation? What glorious, mighty, wonderful testimony can you share with your children, grandchildren, niece, nephew, or the child next door so that they too will “…hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments” (78:7)?
How are you telling the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord?
About Sweeter Than Honey
When I read God’s Word each morning, I find inspiration and insight that keeps my day on track. Join me on this journey. Let’s settle in with His Word—it’s His Love Letter to us. Did you know that? Let’s read it like a love letter, expecting to glean something for our walk with Him every day. Let’s look for peace in the chaos and strength for our weaknesses. Even on our busiest days we can carve out a few minutes to refocus on the important—the eternal. Can’t we? We may have to get up a little earlier, when the house is still and quiet, or stay up a few minutes after the others are all tucked in for the night, but we can do this! I know we can.
Let's be intentional about focusing on God’s Word and the truths found there. Let's let it inspire us to live out our faith each day in a way that causes those we come in contact with to want what we have found. God sees you. He knows you by name, He knows the number of hairs on your head, and He cares about every detail of your daily existence. He wrote you a Love Letter. Let’s dive in!
52 Days in Psalms!
“Prayer does not mean simply to pour out one’s heart. It means rather to find the way to God and to speak with Him, whether the heart is full or empty. No man can do that by himself. For that, he needs Jesus Christ.” ―Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Psalms: The Prayer Book of the Bible
