Psalm 119:16 assures us that God has written our days before a single one began. Our Creator saw and made plans for us before we were conceived. He does the same for future generations. Even now, those grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grands in our lineage sit central in His thoughts. How powerful!
God focuses on future generations often in the Bible. In Genesis 17:4-5, God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. A crowd of descendants would follow.
Psalms also assure us God keeps the future in sight. We find generations mentioned in Psalm 78:6 KJV, “That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children.”
Psalm 102:18 KJV also mentions, “This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.”
Psalm 145:4 WEB also assures, “One generation will commend your works to another, and will declare your mighty acts.”
Even in one of the Bible’s most notable verses, John 3:16, we find evidence of concern for the future. “For God so loved the world…” includes today’s population and tomorrow’s as well.
