“Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to everyonethat is to come.” (Psalm 71:18 KJV).
READ: Psalm 71
Amazing thoughts here from the psalmist; many have at varied times proffered different priorities for life. For some, life is just a passing phase that should be enjoyed thoroughly. For others, life is to be taken ‘as it comes.’ For a select few however, life is to be lived as a channel of God’s power and grace.
The Bible makes us understand that we are to live our lives not just as an end in itself, but as conduits- transmitters of God’s power and grace. We realize that our role in doing this is not tied to age or class. Whether we are 17 or 70, our drive and subsequent prayer, pretty much like the psalmist, should be to touch the heavens and impact the generations with the influence of divinity. Our lives must be purpose driven, kingdom oriented, culturally and generationally relevant, and naturally supernatural. We must access God’s divine power and affect our generation and even those unborn. We must seek to decode His frequencies and communicate it to the hearts of men. We must position our lives in His service that His power through us is still seen even after we have left the scene. We must by our actions and words declare God’s power and strength.
In this quest, we must never tire. Everywhere and every time, we must live fully, lives that are impactful. Our lives must be measured, not by the number of days in it, but by the amount of life in our days and the relevance of this life to and in our generation.
Father, help to live a life that is truly trans-generationally relevant. Teach me to access Your grace and to be a proper conduit of Your power.
