Tell Me a Story
Remembering the mighty works of God and His watch care in our lives is a high priority for God’s people, because it is a high priority for God Himself. To “remember the days of old (and to) consider the years of many generations” pleases the Lord who continues in Deuteronomy 32:7, “…ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.” In the Old Testament, the Children of Israel were urged to remember how God brought them out of slavery “with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm (Deuteronomy 5:15).” Faith in God is nurtured and confidence for the future is strengthened when we remember how God has faithfully intervened in our lives in the past and kept His promises to us.
“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember Your wonders of old. I will ponder all Your work, and meditate on Your mighty deeds. Psalm 77:11, 12”
Share with a young person a personal story from your past that demonstrates God’s faithfulness to you.
Exodus 12:21; Psalm 105:5; Lamentations 3:22,23
Dear Father, thank You for Your faithfulness that endures to all generations, for Your steadfast love that never ceases, and for Your mercies that never come to an end. Help me convey these stories to others in order to connect them more closely to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
