Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts; let them proclaim your power.Psalm 145:4 (NLT)
Have you ever hit the pause button on life and recounted the miracles that God has done? I mean, He created the universe out of nothing in six days! He caused the entire earth to flood and then dry again. He split a sea in two and created a path on dry ground through it. He caused fire to rain down from the sky to honor the prayer of his servant. He walked on water. He turned water into wine. He healed the sick and lame. He spoke and the dead raised to life. He conquered the grave forever. And this is just a small piece of His highlight reel! The Godhead has done some truly amazing things. They are AWESOME!
Of course, God’s miracles didn’t stop in 90 A.D when the Bible was completed. Instead, His miracles continue on to this day. The broken-hearted find love. The addicted are set free. Sick are healed. Yes, the dead are still raised to life! (True story. I know the guy.)
But, what about in your life? What miracles have you seen or experienced? (The answer can’t be none if you’re a Christian. Because the fact that we can call ourselves sons and daughters of God is a miracle in itself.) How have you experienced God working in you and through you? Really think about it. It’s important that you remember.
In fact, our verse today tells us not to just remember how God has worked miracles in the Bible and in our own life. It makes it known that we’re supposed to be telling our kids about those very things. Our verse today states, “Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts; let them proclaim your power.”
Here’s why this is so important. Our kids, teens, and even young adults aren’t hungry for more doctrinal studies. They want to know how to experience God. The question I get asked the most about God is “How do you know?” As in, “How do you know He exists?” or “How do you know He cares?” or “How do you know He breaks addiction?” They aren’t searching for another Daniel and Revelation seminar on prophecy timelines. They are searching for an experience, a journey, a relationship with God.
So, parents, grandparents, community peeps, share your stories. Talk openly about the miracles of God. Let the next generation know how you know He is really who He says He is.
