“Tell your children about it, and have your children tell their children, and their children, another generation.”
To rehearse the truths of God and all He has done for us is such a spread of blessing. We are to tell the generations what the Lord has done and teach them the character of God as we discuss life. The purposes and acts of God should be part of our speaking and we should not be embarrassed to discuss with others what the Lord has done for us.
Why do we not do this naturally? Are we ashamed of our Lord?
This catastrophic event that has happened to the people of God, has stopped them in their tracks and God is going to show them a demonstration of His delivering power and teach them wonderful things about Himself that they can pass on to the succeeding generations in their families and nation. The glory of the Lord will be seen and experienced, and a warning will also be included. To rehearse our failures and demonstrate the forgiveness and mercy of the Lord is so wonderful. This is the witness of the Christian life and the humble way that we share the truth of God.
Perhaps we are unwilling to admit our failures or to praise the name of the Lord for all He has done for us. Perhaps we ourselves fail to rehearse the deliverance of the Lord and therefore forget what we have been saved from. Perhaps we are insensible to His ways of working and don’t even notice what He is doing in our lives.
“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; for I will remember your wonders of old. I will also meditate on all your work, and consider your doings. Your way, God, is in the sanctuary. What god is great like God?”
We remember by the constant rehearsing of the blessings of the Lord and specifically the glory of salvation. We need to meet at the table of remembrance and break the bread and drink the wine that commemorates the death of the Lord Jesus for us. We must not neglect the daily study of the Word of God, for we forget so easily and quickly. Prayer should be our daily breath as we live in the presence of the Lord and in the consciousness of the Holy Spirit.
“Call to me, and I will answer you, and will show you great things, and difficult, which you don’t know.”
