Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 71:18 (KJV); Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
In the Bible, there is no account of events between the book of Malachi and Matthew. This period is often referred to as the 400 silent years.
Were there men and women of God in that time? Yes. Was there the worship of God at that time? Yes.
Despite this, God did not find it important to inspire the recording of 400 years worth of human history.
What a tragedy!
Four hundred years is not just one or two generations, it is more than 10 generations. In the eyes of God, each subsequent generation within these 400 years had nothing significant to eternity to pass on to the next generation! The men and women who lived in this time did not even deserve a footnote in the pages of history.
That cannot be our legacy child of God!
We cannot be a generation that leaves no mark! We cannot lack any ancient oil to pass on to subsequent generations! We refuse that legacy!
Like David, we declare that as a generation, we shall have a message for the generations that follow.

GOLDEN NUGGET: We cannot be a generation that leaves no mark! We cannot lack any ancient oil to pass on to subsequent generations! We refuse that legacy! We declare that as a generation, we shall have a message for the generations that follow.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this knowledge. Thank You for what You are doing in my time. Thank You for the immeasurable privilege to be alive today. I know my part and lot and will leave my mark in this world. I refuse to live an ordinary life or to die as one who was not anointed with oil. That is not my testimony. I will live a glorious legacy for the sake of Your Kingdom, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
