Proclaim

One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.
Psalms 145:4 NASB

That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, That they may arise and tell them to their children, That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments,
Psalms 78:6‭-‬7 NASB

It is the living who give thanks to You, as I do today; A father tells his sons about Your faithfulness.
Isaiah 38:19 NASB

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.
Psalms 71:18 NASB

Praising and proclaiming Jesus Christ is a life long endeavor that passes from generation to generation. Could the condition of our world be as it is because we have failed to proclaim the wonderful works of God, His strength, His power? Have we failed because we have not put our own confidence in God, following His commandments in obedience?

A daily, continual (minute by minute) walk with God naturally causes a desire to praise God and declare His mighty works. It starts with you and your relationship with Jesus Christ. To know Him is to love Him. To love Him is to proclaim Him.

🌹Don’t know Jesus? Seek someone who is a Christian, a church, God Himself to know. God said if you seek you will find.

🌹Professing Christian with nothing to proclaim? Repent before the Lord today. Turn and walk with God and He will give you opportunities to proclaim His name!

Counsel

Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?  The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed,”
Psalms 2:1‭-‬2 NASB

The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.

The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
Psalms 33:10-‬12 NASB

🌹With whose counsel* do you stand?

Lord may our hearts always seek Your counsel over any other and the plans of Your heart. Amen

Continually Seeking Him,

*counsel: advice; opinion or instruction given in directing the judgment or conduct of another.

Jesus in You

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.
Psalms 71:18 NASB

We are needed now more than ever to stand on the truth of God and spread the power of God to all, to declare His strength to this generation!

Let this be our banner cry:

We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. 

That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born,
That they may arise and tell them to their children,

That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments,
Psalms 78:4‭, ‬6‭-‬7 NASB

🌹Where is your confidence? Do others see and know who your confidence is in? Do others see and hear Jesus in you?

🎶 Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you.
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true;
Let others see Jesus in you.

Then live for Christ both day and night,
Be faithful, be brave and true,
and lead the lost to life and Christ.
Let others see Jesus in you.

Continually Seeking Him,

Sharon

Joy

You, O Lord, rule forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. Lamentations 5:19 NASB

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
Psalms 45:6‭-‬7 NASB

Are you anointed with the oil of joy?

There is much joy to be found in knowing God is eternally seated on His throne. Our God who rules in righteousness and justice and love.

On awakening this morning and checking on the hurricane hitting the Louisiana and Texas coast, I read “this could have been so much worse”. Were you praying for the people in the path of this storm? God answered prayer. It may not have been the way we wanted but it was better than expected. Did you thank Him for His mercy in this situation?

As numbers seem to be rising in Covid cases, are you turning to, relying on the One who sits upon the eternal throne? God has this. Are you abiding in His strong tower? Is He your refuge?

But You, O Lord, abide forever, And Your name to all generations.
Psalms 102:12 NASB

God is your only hope in a world seeking their own way, truth and life. Jesus is the only way, truth and life and no one comes to the throne of the Father but by Him. Can you rejoice in that? Can you enter into the Holy of holies and bow before the throne? If not it is time to bow down in surrender to God and His will. That is where real joy is found even when everything around you is falling down.

“But You are the same, And Your years will not come to an end.
Psalms 102:27 NASB

Hallelujah!

🌹The joy of the Lord is our strength.

Continually Seeking Him,
