Psalm 71 verses 17-18 says this: “Oh God, you have taught me from my youth, and to this day, I declare Your wondrous works. Now also, when I am old and gray headed, oh God, do not forsake me, until I declare your strength to this generation, your power to everyone who is to come.”
One of the tragedies I think that happens in any generation is when those of us who have walked with God for many, many years and have been kept by the power of God fail in our responsibility to pass that knowledge on to the next generation. The prophet Malachi in chapter 4 speaking of the days just prior to the Lord’s coming said there’s going to be a voice raised, and that voice would cause the hearts of the fathers to turn back to the children, and the children back to their fathers.
For those of us who know God, it’s time to pray.
