This Generation

4 One generation commends your works to another;
    they tell of your mighty acts.
5 They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
6 They tell of the power of your awesome works—
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
7 They celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness. Psalm 145:4-7

It’s easy to become discouraged when you see some of the societal changes occurring in society (homosexual marriage and transgender issues come to mind). I’m sure our parents said “I’m glad I’m not growing up in that generation,” (meaning our generation). We are seeing the same thing with the next couple of generations too. We shake our heads because we see the proverbial “train wrecks” ahead, just as our parents saw different train wrecks for our generation.

God has a remnant of young people in the church who are vibrant in their devotion and on fire for Christ.

Elijah thought he was the prophet in the land, but the Lord revealed that he had 7000 others who had never bowed the knee to Baal (1 Kings 19).

God is doing a work in this generation as he’s done in our generation and many generations before that. Pray that God will raise up men and women of God who will lead with wisdom as they face the challenges of their generation.
