In days of old — Angus Buchan


Early this morning while sitting meditating, praying and reading my Bible, I read a beautiful Scripture found in Psalm 44:1 (NKJV) — We have heard with our ears oh God, our Fathers have told us, the deeds you did in their days, in days of old.

I really love sitting with older Christians, not necessarily in age, but in maturity and hearing of the signs and wonders and miracles that God has performed through our fathers. Never ever waste an opportunity to sit and listen to stories and testimonies of the old days. This letter is particularly aimed at some of our younger people, you know we are always too busy to sit down and listen to what grandad has to say or what granny has to say, because we are on a mission, but you know a very sad saying goes like this, The first nations people in America would always say that when an old man dies, it is like a library has been burnt down.

Therefore, do not waste an opportunity to speak and to spend time with older people. I remember a very dear friend of mine who has since gone to be with the Lord, he was much older than me and he had retired, he was a very progressive farmer in his young days, in fact he came from Kenya, and he won the young Farmer of the Year in Kenya many years ago. I would see him drive up and down the country roads in his little jeep and I wondered how many young farmers spent time listening to him, because when he died there was no more opportunity.

Even more importantly, when it comes to spiritual things, we really need to hear wisdom from men and women who have walked the road, have walked the talk, have fought the battles, have got the scars to prove it. There is no time to “reinvent the wheel” because Jesus Christ is coming very soon.

God bless you
