“Yea, they spake against God. They said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?” Psalms 78:19
Psalms 78:20 went on to say “Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed. Can he give bread also? Can he provide flesh for his people?”
The writer of this chapter was more focused on educating the next generation about the wonders and the goodness of God. The writer did not want them to forget the works of God (Psalms 78:6-7) because forgetting God’s goodness always lead to disobedience. The writer did not want the next generation to be like their fathers, who were stubborn and rebellious who did not set their heart aright or whose spirit was not steadfast with God according to verse 8 of Psalms 78. So, it was particularly important to remind them and it is extremely important today to tell our young ones too.
This generation need to know that God can, and he will. This generation also need to learn how to talk to God for themselves and how to develop a relationship with him. They need to be told and reminded of what God has done in the past and what he is still doing today. Someone needs to tell the story. I must agree that in this era it can become a challenge to talk about Jesus to young adults. They have access to everything (good and bad) and they are moving fast. But we must be persistent because the story of God’s love must be told to them, so that they can get to know him and trust him as their Lord and savior. That they will not just put their trust in science, but they will trust the God who gave wisdom to mankind to develop science. That they will learn how to worship him in spirit and in truth (mind, body & soul).
We are approaching serious times ahead in this world and our young people are not prepared for it. Who will tell them of God’s wonders how he parted the red sea? Who will tell them the story of Jesus from his birth to his death on the cross? Who will tell them Jesus will be coming back (very soon) for prepared people? Who will tell them that there is a real place called hell for unprepared people? Someone needs to tell the story. It is not too late we can make it our life’s work starting now to win these young people for Christ. All souls are important (young and old) but I realized that most of us are afraid to minister to this generation. Let us start today.
Let us pray: Lord, please forgive me of my sins today. Thank you for your word. Help me Lord to be one of those who will tell the story of your love, your goodness and your wonderous works to this generation. Help me Lord not to be intimidated by their confidence and their approach but instead, help me to be bold so that I can talk about you to anyone, In Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.
