Did you know that July 8 was Psalm 78 Day?
Here’s What I Discovered:
“What a tremendous challenge Psalm 78 gives one generation to tell the “glorious deeds of the LORD” to the next. God intends for His testimony to be taught to the next generations.
One generation faithfully teaches the next generation, which then teaches the next generation, which teaches the next generation, and continues this pattern until Jesus returns. This is the pattern God established for His people to make Himself, His Word, and the gospel known to all generations. Every follower of Christ has this calling.
As a way to incline this generation to meditate and act on these words for the good of the next generation, we encourage you to mark July 8 (7/8) as a day to focus on Psalm 78.“
Psalm 78: 1-8
Give ear, O my people, to my law;
Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter]dark sayings of old,
3 Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children,
Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
5 For He established a testimony in Jacob,
And appointed a law in Israel,
Which He commanded our fathers,
That they should make them known to their children;
6 That the generation to come might know them,
The children who would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children,
7 That they may set their hope in God,
And not forget the works of God,
But keep His commandments;
8 And may not be like their fathers,
A stubborn and rebellious generation,
A generation that did not set its heart aright,
And whose spirit was not faithful to God.
What are the glorious things that the Lord has done in your life? Please let us know in the comments. It’s always wonderful to hear from our readers.
