Episode 648


13 Then we, your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation, we will proclaim your praise.

Psalms 79:13

I wanted to talk about how lucky we are to be able to not just praise the Lord for what he does in our lives but for what he does in that in the lives of our parents and in the lives of our children and hopefully our children’s children and our children’s children. So I don’t personally come from a line of prayer warriors. My parents were very much Catholic in the sense that we knew Jesus. We went to church, maybe on Easter, maybe on Christmas, probably not. It was more. We knew our prayers. I did my sacraments, and I had a base level of who Jesus was. This has nothing to do with Catholicism because I know that we have listeners who are also Catholic. This has everything to do with what my parents instilled in me, which brings me to my point. If you are like me, and you do not have or did not have a foundational level growing up, that does not mean that your generations to come cannot or will have the same upbringing that you did. You have the opportunity right now to not just bless your parents and teach them how to have a personal relationship with Jesus. But you get to instill the same values into your children and into your children’s children. So Psalm 79:13 We are people; the sheep of your pasture will praise you forever from generation to generation. We will put proclaim your praise. 

Today is the perfect day, the day before Thanksgiving. We have the opportunity to look at everything that God has done in your life over the last year. And you have the opportunity to speak that into your family’s lives as you sit around the dinner table tomorrow. So just take a moment and say thank you, Lord, for bringing me from where I came. From. I’m never going back. And God, give us the strength to continue to testify to our families so that we all, for generations to come, praise your name. And that starts with the conversation, and that goes into a growing community with our local churches and a growing community with small groups with Bible studies; find your people and have them continue to pour into not just your lives but your family’s lives and you and your children’s. Bless your children’s children bless and together for generations to come. You can start a new path for your family. And if you come from one who did it before, you gotta say thank you to your parents for instilling that in you.


Father God, we love you, Lord, and we thank you for everything. Today is going to be a great day. Most of us have a short day at work. Some of us are already starting to prep for Thanksgiving tomorrow. And God, there are people overseas outside of the United States who may not be celebrating Thanksgiving, but either way, we are thankful for everything you have done in our lives. Today. We bring up Rachel and her mother, Kathy. May you continue to bless that family, Lord. May You bless Kathy and her walk. God, we know that you are a healer. We know that you are a comforter, and so right now, Kathy needs healing more. And Rachel needs comforting because this is her mom. So we love you. We ask that you bless. Rachel, we ask that you bless Kathy; we ask that you bless this community. We pray this all your son’s mighty name today and every day. Amen.
