TOPIC: MANIFOLD BLESSINGS

TEXT: Psalm 65: 1-13(KJV)
65:1. Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
65:2. O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
65:3. Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
65:4. Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
65:5. By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:

65:6. Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
65:7. Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
65:8. They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
65:9. Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

65:10. Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
65:11. Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
65:12. They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
65:13. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

Anglican Daily Fountain 2nd March 2024 STUDY:

Psalm 65 is another psalm written by David. It is a lyrical poem, that is, a psalm that can be said or sung. It begins with praises to God by describing Him as God of Grace (Psa. 65:1-4); God of Might (Psa. 65:5-8), and God of Prosperity (Psa. 65:9-13). The praises show God as He who answers prayers, forgives all sins, and grants blessedness to those who come to His presence. The psalm also portrays the mighty acts of God in their entirety,“to the ends of the earth” (v.8). Not only that, it describes the bountiful blessings of God.

God blesses us abundantly in so many ways – materially or through nature. He bestowed His blessings upon humanity through His grace which He offered to all mankind. Though we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom. 3: 23), we have been justified freely by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ (Rom. 3: 24). These blessings are what is keeping the world alive. However, the blessing of forgiveness is not automatic – we have to come to the fount flowing with the blood of Christ that cleanses and makes us whole. Have you praised God today for saving you and for all His manifold blessings?

PRAYER: Lord, lead me to the cleansing fount so I can be fit to praise you for your manifold blessings.
