O God, we meditate on your unfailing love as we worship in your Temple. As your name deserves, O God, you will be praised to the ends of the earth. Your strong right hand is filled with victory. Let the people on Mount Zion rejoice. Let the towns of Judah be glad, for your judgments are just. Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and he will be our guide until we die. Psalm 48: 9-14 NLT
How will you describe your life of faith to future generations? Do you tell any children right now of how you came to Christ? What details would be important for folks to know in the future? What significant things has God done in your life that would witness to others who want to know more about Jesus?
We all tend to think that our story is not important or has very little meaning in the big picture. But if we can't share our story with others, how are nonbelievers going to believe that God matters? Will they too see themselves as insignificant? Will they think they have to have a Road to Damascus experience to become a believers? If future generations of believers don't hear your story, then there may be fewer future generations.
Share your stories of your faith: describe your own towers, walls, citadels and the God who is your God forever, guiding our lives and our lives after death.
God, help all who read this devotional to share their faith with others. In Jesus' name. Amen.
