Wonderful Stories

24 January 2009

Scripture:

You will be able to tell wonderful stories to your children and grandchildren about the marvelous things I am doing among the Egyptians to prove that I am the Lord. (Exodus 10:2 NLT)

Observation and Application:

Life can get pretty scary sometimes. The destructive power of the plagues on Egypt was becoming more and more intense and the only thing protecting the Israelis from the devastation was God’s care for them.

The followers of Christ face the same challenges as everyone else in our world when trying times come. We face financial reversal, we face health issues, we experience sorrow and loss and disappointments and delays.

We can rejoice that God is with us and that his care and provision in the face of huge challenges makes us able to tell wonderful stories to our children and grandchildren (and to everyone else!) about the marvelous things God does for us and in us.

15 I will tell everyone about your righteousness. All day long I will proclaim your saving power, for I am overwhelmed by how much you have done for me. 16 I will praise your mighty deeds, O Sovereign Lord. I will tell everyone that you alone are just and good. 17 O God, you have taught me from my earliest childhood, and I have constantly told others about the wonderful things you do. 18 Now that I am old and gray, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation, your mighty miracles to all who come after me. (Psalm 71:15-18 NLT)

Prayer:

Father, Please remind us of the wonderful stories of all you have done for us through the years. May we be prompted by your Spirit to tell the wonderful stories to our children and grandchildren and to Christ-followers whose faith is new and to people who are facing the scary things in life without real hope. I purpose to tell at least one wonderful story of your provision, protection, and care today. Amen.
