LIMITING THE HOLY ONE
Today's Reading: Psalm 78
Key Verse: Psalm 78:4, 41
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…
Yes, again and again they tempted God,
And limited the Holy One of Israel.
Asaph, The senior worship leader of Israel, composed this beautiful poetry and put it to music. Our reading for today puts emphasis on the responsibility we must carry in making sure that the children, the next generation, know the stories of God's faithfulness. We must not neglect to also point out the people's unfaithfulness. This teaching method has often inspired the next generation to rise above the older generation's level of knowledge to experience God in new and powerful ways.
Words put to music, like these Psalms when they were first composed, often have a greater impact on our lives than words alone. Take time today to listen to some great, uplifting music that focuses your attention on the goodness and character and attributes of our almighty God!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, You work within human free will because You made us in Your image and likeness. We pray that we may not limit You by our failure to communicate the truths we read in Your Word. May we also teach the next generation by recounting, in an effective manner, the experiences of our lives. In the Name of Jesus we pray. Amen!
