Tuesday – Psalm 78:5-8

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.”

As a parent, I try to do the best that I can for my children, and sometimes it just doesn’t seem to be good enough.  When I stop long enough to realize that I really don’t have enough in me to do all and give all that they need, I humbly repent.  This culture makes it so difficult for us to show our children who God is.  The Scripture above says that we should arise and make known to our children the Word of God, that they may have hope in God, not forget his works but set their spirit faithful to God.  As I read, it seems to  me that we have a choice to set our hope in God.  God is faithful and He does answer prayer.  I praise God, I thank God, and do speak the wonderful works of God to my children.  Sometimes I pray that they hear and listen to what they hear by choosing to do what the Word says.  Parents are not perfect but I do sometimes think they get a bad rap when they choose to serve the Lord and deny to their children some of the destructive things the world has to offer.  I look back at a simpler time and it seems that the heart of our parents may have been the same, just a different dressing.  Less toys and distractions.  However prayer still works and the Word is the same yesterday, today and forever.  There is hope in God!
