One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts…. All your works praise you, Lord; your faithful people extol you. They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all people may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. —Psalm 145:4, 10-12

Has your mouth told the next generation of His works, of His might acts? His works bring praise to His Name and if we are to be faithful followers of His then we are to tell the next generation and all people of “the glorious splendor of (His) kingdom.” When was the last time you commended His work to another?

It is clear from God’s Word that we are to be witnesses of our Lord Jesus Christ. How will the next generation or any people know of Him and His wonderful works if we do not open our mouths and tell them? Our witness has a direct bearing on the Lord’s return— “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14). He is being patient with us to share Him with others— “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9).

Who will you proclaim His Name to today? Who will you proclaim His wonderful works to and His might acts to?

Dear Father, please give me wisdom and boldness as I speak Your Word to others today. Oh, may You be pleased to draw others to Yourself today. May it be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son, Jesus. So be it!
