March 5

There are times the best thing to do is to let Scripture speak for you. I’m going to do that this morning. As I read Psalm 65 I was struck by its praise. How many time haves I read this before and not seen it? I can’t say. But here is my summary of Psalm 65.

It begins: “What a mighty praise, O God, belongs to You in Zion”:

  1. You answer our prayers
  2. You forgive our sins
  3. You bring joy in your courts
  4. You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds
  5. You formed the mountains
  6. You quieted the raging oceans
  7. You silenced the shouting of the nations
  8. You inspire shouts of joy
  9. You take care care of the earth and water it
  10. You provide a bountiful harvest
  11. You drench the plowed ground with rain
  12. You soften the earth with showers
  13. You bless with abundant crops and a bountiful harvest
  14. You make green pastures out of wilderness
  15. You clothe the meadows with sheep
  16. You carpet the valley with grain

Some of the language is ancient, but it still fills our hearts with praise to the One who does it all. Is your heart filled with praise today? If so, what for?

“Father, may my heart be filled with praise of and for You today. Help me to rejoice as the psalmist did in all you reveal as to why You are worthy of praise.”

Here is a song to fill your heart. It was the one which was on my playlist this morning on the way to the office. Coincidence? I think not.
