Praise is awaiting You, O God, in Zion; And to You the vow shall be performed. O You who hear prayer, To You all flesh will come. Iniquities prevail against me; As for our transgressions, You will provide atonement for them. Psalm 65 NKJV
This Psalm addresses the infinite power and goodness of God.
God is all powerful and all knowing. He is in control of all things. He is good and righteous. He is holy, set apart and above all things. Love is His primary motivation.
God is worthy of praise and worship. The natural response of man is to return the love God lavishes upon us. Sin comes between the God of creation and the object of His love.
Do not be discouraged. Be joyful. Almighty God hears when you pray. He answers the prayers of people who are motivated by love for Jesus.
Sin and death have been conquered. We do not yet see the evidence of victory with fleshly eyes. We can see the victory through eyes of faith.
Jesus made a way for us to live in a loving relationship with God today!
Blessed is the man You choose, And cause to approach You, That he may dwell in Your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Of Your holy temple. Vs 4
Do you know Jesus? Do you love Him? I do!
If you are a disciple of Jesus Christ it is because the God of love chose you! You can live in relationship with Jesus today and in His presence throughout eternity!
If we cannot find satisfaction in our relationship with Jesus we never will!
You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; The river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, For so You have prepared it. You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows: You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth. Vs 9-10
I know what it is like to chase after the wind seeking more things. I have done it. I still get caught up in it from time to time. It happens when I take my eyes off Jesus. It happens when I focus on things that have no eternal value.
I have all I need. I have a loving Heavenly Father. I can cry out to Him anytime. Jesus comforts me when I need comforting. Jesus teaches me what I need to know. Jesus corrects me when I need correcting!
You can have everything you need. Return to your first love or turn to God for the very first time. Do not wait until the sin that so easily besets you has faded. It will raise its ugly head again.
God made a way of escape for you. His name is Jesus. Trust Him for everything!
