“How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying His commands. Their children will be successful everywhere; an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.”
Isn’t this verse such a wonderful promise. If we are faithful, fearing (revering His holiness) the Lord and obeying His commands, look at what blessings await us. Our children will be successful. More than our children, generations will be blessed. See God’s blessings for us, are not just for the here and now, but are generational. When we look back to when the 10 commandments were given to Moses, we also see there that God promised us, that those who do not bow down to idols, or worship false gods, those who obey and follow God’s commands, He will pour out His ‘lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations’. Do you see the power in these promises. Not only will our children, the next generation be blessed if we obey God’s commands, but the next generation after them, and the next and the next and so on…
Friends, these are God’s promises to us. It is on these promises that our hope lies. Promises of blessings, promises of success and promises of God’s unfailing love, for us and for generations to come. Let us be like the joyful believers and followers of God’s word that the Psalmist mentions. Delight in His ways, and you will be blessed. Know that your actions now affect generations to come. You have an opportunity to make it generations of blessings….
