“O God, You have taught me from my youth, and I still declare Your wondrous deeds. And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.” (71:17-18)
This verse struck a deep chord with me. It is the greatest blessing of my life that I met the LORD at a young age. I truly desire to spend my whole life with Him, and share His goodness with my generation. Like David, and many more before me, I have the opportunity to represent the LORD to those around me, and maybe even remain a light through the generations which follows me, by way of memory or written record.
“As for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.” (73:28)
He will forever remain the best part of my life, a worthy focal point, an easy inspiration. May we all discover Him in the way, and in ever increasing measure.
