Psalms — Psalm 65 – Creation

Day 2665: Psalm 65 on Day 2665!

Scripture: How blessed is the one You choose, the one You cause to live in Your courts.  With awesome deeds of justice You will answer us, God our Deliverer. The One who established the mountains by His strength is clothed with omnipotence. He calmed the roar of seas, the roaring of the waves, and the turmoil of the peoples.

You make the going forth of the morning and the evening shout for joy. You take care of the earth, You water it, and You enrich it greatly with the river of God that overflows with water. You provide grain for them, for You have ordained it this way. You fill the furrows of the field with water so that their ridges overflow. You soften them with rain showers; their sprouts you have blessed. 

The wilderness pastures drip with dew, and the hills wrap themselves with joy. The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep, and the valleys are covered with grain. They shout for joy; yes, they burst out in song!    Excerpts from Psalm 65

Thoughts/questions: What an awesome God we serve. This Psalm describes various aspects of creation and I’ll highlight a couple of them! Sunsets and sunrises are often so glorious and expansive, but I had never thought of their beauty shouting for joy! And what a shout they exude!

Another joyful aspect of nature are hills! Currently where I live the surrounding hillsides are covered in a lush carpet of green. But not just green, SO many green shades and hues! Starting now until summer, become conscious of green. Stare at any area filled with vegetation and enjoy God’s awesomeness. (Plus creating our eyes to receive how those hills wrap themselves with joy!

Our Creator God – WOW!!!

Suggested prayer: Creator God, words can’t describe what You’ve created and how great You are . . .
