For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.  The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth. Isaiah 38:18-19
Hezekiah is speaking to the Lord in this portion of scripture. God answered Hezekiah’s prayer to give him more time on the earth. Hezekiah said once you are in the grave you cannot praise God. Once people are in the grave their hope of salvation is gone.
The living, the living shall praise God. When something is said twice we need to pay attention.
Who should praise God? The living, yes we will praise Him in heaven but there will not be unsaved in heaven. The ones in heaven will already be praising Him.
You do not know what God’s plan is in regards to the unsaved people in your life. This verse tells us the father to the children will make the truth known.
What can you share with your children as well as those around you. Let others see the joy of your salvation.
Share your blessings.
Share your testimony.
Share the praise of God before others.
Let others see the hope that is within you.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 1 Peter 3:15
Have a blessed day,
