“And he said to the people of Israel, 'When your children ask their fathers in times to come, "What do these stones mean?" then you shall let your children know, "Israel passed over this Jordan on dry ground.... that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.'"

‭‭Joshua‬ ‭4:21-22, 24‬

God brings things to our lives that he wants us to remember and pass on to our children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  The hardest times in our lives become memories of God’s intervention, deliverance, provision and salvation as we re-tell them.  Instead of instilling fear in the next generation we can instill faith as we relate the stories of answered prayer in our own walk with God to them.

Too often we just forget to tell them the stories, and that part of the family heritage is lost.  What a sad loss that is!

Start today.  The younger they are when they hear the stories of God’s hand at work in your life, the more these will be woven into the fabric of the way they approach life.

Give a joyful testimony of God’s dealing with you, answering your prayers, guiding your steps, and even correcting you when you’ve gotten off the track.  Tell the truth!  Let His mercy and grace shine through the stories.

Lord, you have been with me, guided my steps, covered me with your forgiveness, provided my needs, and answered my prayers.  Give me the words I need to creatively pass these experiences on to the next generation of your children.  Be glorified in my life, Lord Jesus!
