“A People Yet Unborn May Praise”

Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet unborn may praise the LORD . . .

The gloomy “human beings are born to trouble, just as sparks fly upward” (Job 5:7) is countered by this glorious “a people yet unborn may praise the LORD.” If pain and sorrow are certain, praise and salvation are even more so. If the results of sin are inevitable, the consequences of grace are irresistible.

PRAYER: Lord God, I survey the ruins around me—broken promises, plotted malice, failed love—and I am brought low. Then I review the expectations of faith—the visitation of your spirit, the deliverance by Messiah, the praising worship of the redeemed—and I am lifted up. Amen.
