“So each generation can set its hope anew on God, remembering His glorious miracles and obeying His commands. Then they will not be like their ancestors-stubborn, rebellious, and unfaithful, refusing to give their hearts to God.”
Psalms 78:7-8 (NLT)
We have choices. This new generation had to choose whether they were going to treat God like their ancestors did or follow a different way. Their ancestors chose not to follow God, being rebellious, unfaithful and stubborn. They refused to give their hearts to Him. But now, for the new generation, it was time to choose. Would they follow the old way or choose a new way?
Thankfully, they chose to remember God’s goodness and follow His ways. This started with a choice, a choice to break from the bad and follow the good. Now, anyone who has struggled with behavior knows that “one” choice won’t get a person through a life time. Life is full of choices. This generation’s ancestors did not start out rebellious and stubborn, but became so one choice at a time and soon they were far from who they use to be. Where are you? Are you refusing to give your heart fully to God? Where has the road you’ve followed taken you? Which side of this generation gap represents you? It’s not too late; a new pathway is only a choice away- Today choose to follow God.
Father, thank You for the freedom to choose. Thank You that by Your grace it is never too late to follow You. That is what I want; I want to follow You. Help me to that end.
