Deuteronomy 7:9 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  A Thousand Generations.  Topics:  2 at end.

“And thou shalt know that the Lord thy God, he is a strong and faithful God, keeping his covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments, unto a thousand generations: . . . ”  DRA http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

A thousand generations.  How far back and how far forward does this go?  In what year would any given family on Earth reach 1,000 generations?

This depends, of course, on the rate of reproduction in any generation.  We know that in some families, generations have fewer years.  For example, if in a family, children marry in their early or mid-twenties, and if their children do the same, and so on, then there will eventually be an extra generation there as in comparison to families where marriages occur when members are in their 30’s.  So, 1,000 generations in one family will vary from the next family over.

But not to belabor that point – a thousand generations involves a lot of years!  It could be 20,000 years or 30,000 and up.  But, of course, we are mostly physically concerned individually with our present generation and perhaps two or three from the past and some that will occur in the future.

But in order to have as many generations as God would ordain, every person conceived in any family needs to be born.  Simple as that.  But no matter how the numbers of years work out, the point of this scripture is that God keeps His covenant and His mercy for a very very long time.  Longer than we can even really imagine.  But just the thought of a thousand generations is in the category of awesome when we consider this promise from God.  In essence, to our human minds, these generations can add up to, to seem:  like forever.

Lord, help us to claim this ever-long promise You give us here.  Help us to assist those considering abortion to have that little baby and thus enter into a portion of this statement about Your faithfulness.  Help babies headed for obliteration to overcome in some way, and to be born.  Then help us to remember to praise You, Lord, for Your awesome care toward us.

Topics:  Pray to claim God’s promises of keeping His covenant and mercy, that many babies today will be born, not killed in their mothers’ wombs, so as to add to this commitment by the God Who loves them.
