Overflowing Carts | Psalm 65:9-13
Todayís Passage: Psalm 65:9-13
Key Verses: Psalm 65:9-11
You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
As noted yesterday, some commentators believe that David wrote this song to be sung at the Festival of Harvest when a sheaf of the firstfruits of the barley crop was presented to the Lord. It was a time to remember that God always provides.
This song reminds the hearers that God supplies the land with water. He fills the streams in order to provide people with food. He brings the bounty so ìyour carts overflow with abundance.î The grasslands and hills, the meadows and valleys all shout for joy and sing of Godís goodness.
Maybe you are going through a tough stretch. Maybe it doesnít seem like God is coming through. Maybe your carts are not overflowing with abundance. God has not forgotten you. He will give you exactly what you need exactly when you need it. He is seldom early but he is never late. He is always right on time!
Father, I am in need. It sure doesnít seem like my carts are overflowing with abundance. I am going through a tough stretch and I am in need of your (name what you need from God). I am trusting in you to provide. I am trusting in your timing. Give me more faith to keep believing. Give me more patience to keep waiting. Give me a glimmer of hope to keep me focused on the coming harvest. In Jesusí name. Amen.
