Psalm 145:4 - One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts.

Nothing will ever be able to eliminate God's people. The world may try to silence Him but God's acts will always be passed on from one to another. And one day He will return for all to see. 

The world can turn away from God but in the hearts of those who devote their lives to the Lord, He will always be there. Once committed to Him, He will not remove Himself from us. We can turn our backs and walk away from Him, break our covenant with Him--but His covenant with us is forever.  He will never turn His back on us. No man can take His Spirit from us once we have received it...and hold on to it.

In days to come, things will look more and more grim. It's only grim to those who do not have Christ as their Savior. We who are faithful in our walk with God will be watched to see how we respond to disaster. They will look and wonder at the peace we have. They will want to know where it comes from and even how to receive it. (At least I hope so.) Even if death is imminent there is peace that comes from knowing what lies ahead for those who have received Jesus for their salvation. If we know the Lord our lives are eternal in death. That's what Jesus is all about, why He came to this earth and why He had to die--for all of us.

One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. That alone should be the praise on our lips--the declaration of our hearts. There is none like God. There is none wiser or honest, more loving, more concerned about our welfare and our salvation. No man on earth can possibly do that. He wishes none to perish.

This Psalm also tells us He is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. His kingdom is everlasting...even if some do not believe this. Only He endures. Other religions may claim otherwise, but the truth of His word will be made known some day. If you aren't sure where you're at with God, know that He gladly will take you in if you seek Him. Seek through asking, communing through prayer. Seek by picking up that dusty old Bible. Read the Gospel of John. Listen to what Jesus has to say about Himself and what He can do for you.

It's so important to understand and know His love for us. When we allow His truth to enter into our hearts, and God, and let Him be our center, here's His promise:

Psalm 145:18-19 - The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.
