Psalm 36:8 Thought/Prayer:  The Abundance of His House.  Topics:  2 at end.

“They shall be abundantly satisfied with the abundance of your house. You will make them drink of the river of your pleasures.”  (WEB)  (Read this scripture and more at

According to some translations, this psalm was written by David and was directed to the director of music.  It contrasts the wicked with those of righteousness because of the Lord.  The wicked are so stuck on themselves, they don’t even recognize their own sin.  Regarding the righteous, read the words above.  They will have access to God’s abundance, and also access to God’s river of His pleasures.  The righteous are those of us who do recognize our horrible sin; and we confess it; and we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior and make Him our Lord.  Then we stand in His righteousness, not ours (which never makes it to stand before a Holy God.)

And then we enjoy the abundance of his “house.”  Might we describe His house as heaven, or possibly all that He gives us on Earth?  We know from John 14:2, that God’s house has many mansions.  And Jesus says that He goes to prepare us a place there.  The abundance there?  We aren’t told specifically, but if it’s God’s, and it’s there for us?  It’s the best ever . . . or should we say the best forever?

Surely we can trust the One who made rainbows and water droplets to reflect them, to have marvelous abundant things for us who come to Him.  Whatever He has for us:  It is good.

So many people do not recognize this, and so many struggle with death vs. life that it is difficult for them to recognize it.  But we must pray for these, along with giving our own thanks for being told about God’s abundance in the Bible.  Many struggling with what to do about an unwanted or even criminally-caused pregnancy can hopefully realize that through salvation in Christ, there are treasures awaiting them on Earth and in Heaven.  The hope of something great . . . greater than the problems in which folks find themselves . . .  can be the boost they need to persevere, carrying on to the best decisions about life/death:  That being, LIFE.

Lord, help us to pray that they will know this and will be able to enjoy the abundance of Your house and Your blessings.

Topics:  Pray for God to reveal Himself to those who struggle so, and pray that they will be able to recognize the abundance that is waiting for them wherever He is.
