Judges 2:7 (KJV)
7 And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.

Judges 2:10-12 (KJV)
10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.
11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:
12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger.

Yesterday I alluded to these scriptures and the impact is still disturbing my soul today. During Joshua’s lifetime and the other elders, they witnessed miraculous events from the time of the exodus from Egypt to living in Canaan land. The observed the miraculous event of the Lord splitting the waters of the Red Sea and the land beneath being dry so that all Israel could walk through on dry ground and then bringing the waters together again to destroy the army of Pharaoh. How the Lord lead them through the wilderness and feeding all Israel with manna that fell from the heavens, as well as quail and causing water to emerge from a rock. These historical events were being handed down to those of the next generation. Now the time had come when those who witnessed these events had passed on and the only thing that remained were stories surrounding the youth. It wasn’t long until the stories were only folk tales and soon forgotten. The generations were growing up not really knowing who the Lord was and his great works. There is a trend that is becoming more and more prevalent in our day and time that our youth are growing up without a true knowledge of who the Lord is. Join with me in prayer for the younger generation to come into the knowledge of the Lord. Pray that our faith will spark a revival of miracles that the younger generation can witness the mighty works of God. Let the blessings we receive every day open doors of opportunity that our youth can see the great works of the Lord Jesus Christ. Receive your blessings and share with those around you.
