Psalm 65:1-4 NIV 2011

Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.

You who answer prayer, to you all people will come.

When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.

Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with good things of your house, of your holy temple.

 

David authored this Psalm of praise. Those who went to God in prayer experienced God’s goodness. Psalm 86:9, “All nations you have made will come and worship before you.” God’s mercies are never ending toward His faithful. Psalm 32:1, “Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.” Those who know God’s Word, draw near to Him. Psalm 1:2, “but those whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.” God forgives and blesses those who remain in Him.

 

Living in the twenty-first century today is not much different than when David wrote this Psalm. We are all still sinners in need of a Savior. We get drawn into the world around us, which keeps us from spending time in God’s Word. A myriad of things keep us from fellowshipping with fellow believers. As part of the body of Christ, we need to spend time in fellowship with our church family. Grounded in God’s Word and remaining in Him, I’m forgiven and blessed daily.

 

How do you remain in Him?

 

Forgiven and blessed,

S
