Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.
Psalm 145:13 (NIV)
Between 1972 and 1992, at least 60% of births were to mothers born during the baby boom. The children of baby boomers generation can therefore be defined as all individuals born during this 21-year period. According to 2021 Census data, 9.1 million people, or 25% of the total population, belong to the children of baby boomers generation. These people were aged between 39 and 59 in 2021. This generation is often called Generation Y or ’echo of the baby boom.’
Generations come and generations go. Biblically, a generation is 40 years. So since Jesus walked the earth there have been 50 generations. When you put it that way, it doesn’t seem all that long ago. King David understood this, and realized that while generations pass quickly, God is unchangeable. In Psalm 145:13 he writes “Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.” Nations come and go. National leaders rise up and fall. Change is a constant in our world. But David understood that God’s kingdom, about which Jesus spoke often, is unchangeable, because it’s leader never changes. The principles of the world change with each generation – we have certainly seen that in our generation. The rate of moral and ethical change in my six and a half decades of life has been staggering. What a blessing to know that God never changes and neither do the principles of His Kingdom. If you want stability in your life, and hope, put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever, and His kingdom endures through all generations.
These have been words from the heart.
