Each day I find a darkening across our land, hatred and strife. No regard for what is good and right, continual pursuit for that which pleases the sinful soul. Generations of children that shall come may grow up in a land that no longer recognizes God, a land void of Biblical truth, but I am reminded that His testimonies will forever remain true.
“And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you?” Deuteronomy 6:20
What will we answer? Will we give up in defeat? Will we forget to teach them the testimonies of God? Will we become discouraged by the forces at work around us? Will we lose sight of the magnificent power of our Lord?
No !!! We will rise up, we will remember!! We will keep His testimonies and never forget the works that He has done !! We will continue the fight!! Our children will know of His testimonies!!!
“And keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:” 1 Kings 2:3
We will remember, we will remain focused on Him, knowing that He has already won the war !! His testimonies are forever, they will not falter nor change.
“Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.” Psalm 119:152
“The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.” Psalm 119:144
By the understanding that He gives, we will continue in His testimonies. We will live steadfast by the power of His might, seeking Him in all that we do!! We will not live in defeat!!
“Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” 2 Thessalonians 2:15-17
