1000 generations

Have you ever wondered why you, among a myriad of people, received

  1. a blessing
  2. a promotion
  3. unmerited kindness
  4. favor or
  5. were protected from evil?

Ps 105:8 (WEB)

He has remembered his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations,

As much as we keep a watchful eye out, as alert as we can be, we still have to sleep. It is impossible to be vigilant 24/7. But, God never sleeps. He doesn’t get distracted and He never forgets. He keeps His Word.

De 7:9

Know therefore that Yahweh your God, he is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and loving kindness with them who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations, (WEB)

Many years ago when my children were young, our home had four stories. One of them was in an attic room on the top floor that had a window which swung out to open. As s/he was looking out something inside said to lean forward. While s/he was stretching farther and farther over the frame, an older sibling “happened” into the room and grabbed the tyke!

We may go before the Lord in proxy our offspring (i.e. Job 1:5) on a daily basis, but it is God’s responsibility to keep them. Realizing this, I stood on

Ps 27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then Yahweh will take me up. (WEB)

when one of them left for college on another continent!

Another time when one of my progeny was about 12 years old, we held a weekend retreat at our house with the youth from church. As we were all praying in the living room the Spirit of God fell mightily and the adolescent was filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues. What I found out years later was that at the particular period my bambino was questioning and evaluating his/her faith. (Parents don’t panic!!!! It is a normal stage of development for them to form their own identity. Not a reflection on you…) This outpouring confirmed and cemented God’s reality and nearness all time.

1Ch 16:15

Remember his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, (WEB)

God is not limited by time nor space. He draws us with cords of love (Hos. 11:4) and never leaves nor forsakes us (Heb. 13:5). We must remember these facts. In Him there is no varying (see Jas. 1:17).

Ro 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? (WEB)

Time to give thanks…
