14 Oct Keep Going, Parents! | Words from King David
Inspiration for October Blastin’ BlastersGood job faithful parents! Keep declaring God’s truth to the next generation. If your littluns are blasting through Bible Blast this October, then you’re knee-deep in God’s mightiest heroes! Whether you’re a Bible Blast facilitator, director, or a family going through Bible Blast on your own, in this blog we’ll cover a few words from King David that will help you keep going.
The lessons that God taught King David are lessons that we all need, even when we’re old and grey. Here’s an example of what King David realized and wrote down for us to read in Psalm 71.
“Sticky” SituationsDon’t you hate it when a sticky something just won’t come off? When you scrape, grind, and scratch and it won’t even budge? When even after weeks of Googling slime removal secrets, nothing seems to work? Finding the right solvent for your sticky problem feels like a great mystery until suddenly, it doesn’t. When the solvent is finally found, it’s a glorious moment as the goo is wiped away in a single swoosh! King David’s sin began to bury him deeper and deeper.
It seemed like an impossible mystery for him to find a way out and become right with God. He needed a solvent for his sin. Even in the midst of his sticky situation, God did not forsake him. David realized that he didn’t want God to be done with him. More than anything, he wanted his gooey sin to be done away with. He finally asked God for a clean heart, and God was right there ready to help. Keep declaring to your children the truth in God’s Word – the one true solvent for wiping away sin!
When we teach the next generation about God’s power and marvelous deeds, they’ll always know who they can turn to. “I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.” Psalm 71:16-18.
