Psalm 65   Thought/Prayer:  Sin, Forgiveness, God’s House.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Praise Waits for You, God, in Zion
1To the end, a psalm of David. The canticle of Jeremias and Ezechiel to the people of the captivity, when they began to go out. A Hymn, O God, becometh thee in Sion: and a vow shall be paid to thee in Jerusalem.
2O hear my prayer: all flesh shall come to thee.
3The words of the wicked have prevailed over us: and thou wilt pardon our transgressions.
4Blessed is he whom thou hast chosen and taken to thee: he shall dwell in thy courts. We shall be filled with the good things of thy house; holy is thy temple,
5wonderful in justice. Hear us, O God our saviour, who art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and in the sea afar off.
6Thou who preparest the mountains by thy strength, being girded with power:
7who troublest the depth of the sea, the noise of its waves. The Gentiles shall be troubled,
8and they that dwell in the uttermost borders shall be afraid at thy signs: thou shalt make the outgoings of the morning and of the evening to be joyful.
9Thou hast visited the earth, and hast plentifully watered it; thou hast many ways enriched it. The river of God is filled with water, thou hast prepared their food: for so is its preparation.
10Fill up plentifully the streams thereof, multiply its fruits; it shall spring up and rejoice in its showers.
11Thou shalt bless the crown of the year of thy goodness: and thy fields shall be filled with plenty.
12The beautiful places of the wilderness shall grow fat: and the hills shall be girded about with joy,
13The rams of the flock are clothed, and the vales shall abound with corn: they shall shout, yea they shall sing a hymn.”  (DRB)  Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com

This beautiful Psalm of David has so much in it with variety indeed.  In verse 3, David speaks of the words of the wicked prevailing over us.  Sin took over!  The people were overwhelmed with sin! 

But in the same verse, immediately we’re told that God pardoned their transgressions.  God has so much patience and infinite pardon if we ask for it!  (It’s so good that the second one-half of this verse counteracts completely the first half!)  Psalm 86:15 speaks of God’s longsuffering: “And thou, O Lord, art a God of compassion, and merciful, patient, and of much mercy, and true” (DRB). 

Then In verse 4 the psalmist begins the remainder of the psalm that is full of praise and glory to God, telling us that the chosen of God will live in His courts; those who believe will live close to God!  And the good things in His House?  We will be filled with them!  This is a future to look forward to.  We have glimpses of what God is like here on Earth, through our faith – but to live in His house – to be filled with all of His good things!  Well, we can’t really imagine, in our earthly view.  But it has to be beyond anything we can remotely even to outer space, think of! 

Lord, thank You for the glimpses of what lies ahead for those who believe – a future.  And thank You for the assurance that You do pardon our transgressions, even to the description of what it is like to live close to You in Your house.

As we serve in pro-life causes, we ask that You will continually remind us of Your compassion and forgiveness – and may all of this spill over to be known by those we serve.

Topics:  Praise God for His infinite patience and forgiveness, and that those in LIFE struggles may learn of it.
