The song of Psalm 78 is an historical one that provides an overview of God’s provision for the Israelites from the time of Moses to David. Looking back and remembering how God has walked with us as our provider and protector is important because it helps us keep our focus on God and His greatness and goodness. And, as we look back, we not only need to be reminding for ourselves but also passing on God’s history, as well as our personal history with God, to those around us and especially to children and the next generation.
“tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done” (vs. 4).
Is looking back and remembering God’s history, as well as your specific history with Him, something you do regularly? What impact does remembering God’s history have on you? Why is it so important to share this information with the next generation? Tami
