An Unbroken Chain...
Hi everybody!

I don't have time for a really long blog post today because I'm running out for a ton of errands, but I have to share something I read in my devotions.

In Jeremiah 35:19, it says this:

Jonadab son of Rechab shall not lack a descendant to stand before me for all time. (emphasis mine)


Isn't that beautiful? Of course, they meant physical descendants, which was everything to people back then. But I think that's such a neat promise, and God adds the "for all time", meaning that it is never to be broken, no matter what happens. The new covenant doesn't nullify the promise, nor can anything else (including, I imagine, the Holocaust or the Roman massacre).

So what does this mean for us today? I have often prayed that God would give me an unbroken chain of believers from now until the end--that there would be a line from me through them to Jesus returning. It starts with my girls, but it likely won't end there. And so I pray for them, and their children, and so on, that God would hold them close to Him.

It's just a nice picture, and I thought I'd share it. Have to run now!

Once the Lord gives His word there is nothing that can make Him break it.

My grandmother used to tell us how our great grandfather used to pray for his children and all their descendants and from him there has been many that have grown up to be pastors and missionaries.

What a lovely reflection! That'll give me a lot to think about as I go make dinner. :)

I'm not sure how I stumbled across your blog but I'm delighted to have found it. I'm adding it to my reader and will definitely be back!
