Look at how God provides for us and find joy in that faith-building truth.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Psalm 65:4-5 - What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What festivities await us inside your holy Temple. 5 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth.
Read - Psalm 65, 68
Psalm 65 - this is a song of joy celebrating the provision of God. A wonderful word picture is given in that the Lord ‘softens the earth with showers’. Yes God softens the physical world with things like rain and He softens the heart of man with His gifts of grace and mercy.
Lord, I will care for the powerless as You do!
Note the similarity between James 1:27 and Psalm 68:5-6. God did and does care for those in need!
Psalm 68 reminds us of a wonderful attribute of God…He is strong for those who are weak. Whether that is a widow or orphan or whether that is the tiny tribes of Israel…He is! His record proves this so that knowing that truth should fill us with confidence to live in faith!
