Passage: Psalm 65
Verses: Psalm 65:1-2 (NIV)
How pleasing it must be to the Lord, our God. Our
Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion;
to you our vows will be fulfilled.
You who answer prayer,
to you all people will come.
He has forgiven us for all those things that have separated us from Him. We are blessed when we choose to live in a close relationship with Him. He fills our lives with all the truly good things that this earthly life has to offer. We can find strength from Him to cope with the challenges of the day. True hope is found in Him. May we be in awe as we consider His creation. May we be wise stewards of all He has entrusted to us.
May we envision a time when [God will] crown the year with [His] bounty, and [His] carts [will] overflow with abundance. [When] the grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. [When] the meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they [will] shout for joy and sing [v. 11-13]. What a joyous description of a time to come for those who believe and trust in the Lord! May we find peace and rest in this future hope.
