This is a cool time of year. The vegetation has come to life! The flowers are blooming and the gardens are growing. This is spring and summer is closing in fast. The Presence of God can so be seen in the creative works at this time of year. The Life Giver is giving life to so much around us. David is in a good place when he pens the words of Psalm 65. He is thankful and these words blessed me. Check this out…2 You hear our prayers. All people will come to you. 3 Our guilt overwhelms us, but you forgive our sins. 4 Happy are the people you choose and invite to stay in your court. We are filled with good things in your house, your holy Temple. 5 You answer us in amazing ways, God our Savior. People everywhere on the earth and beyond the sea trust you. 6 You made the mountains by your strength; you are dressed in power. 8 Even those people at the ends of the earth fear your miracles. You are praised from where the sun rises to where it sets. 9 You take care of the land and water it; you make it very fertile. The rivers of God are full of water. Grain grows because you make it grow. 10 You send rain to the plowed fields; you fill the rows with water. You soften the ground with rain, and then you bless it with crops. (Psalm 65:2-6; 8-10 NCV)
I have a thankful heart to God who makes all things. He makes things new and fresh. He is the Giver of life. He sustains life. He is worthy of my praise and gratitude for Who He is and what He has done. He is Creator God. The proper approach for me to come before Him is with thankfulness in my heart. He has everything in His hand. He is responsible for every good gift and blessing in my life! I’m so very thankful to my God and my Friend!
