Psalm 65: A Song of Spring and Harvest

 

If you love the beauty of spring and the bounty of harvest, you’ll relish what Psalm 65 has to say! I’m an ol’ farm boy and had a wonderful time just reflecting on the rich imagery and delightful description of Psalmist David this morning. I paused with my cup of coffee during “coffee with the Lord” a couple of times and had a wonderful thanksgiving and worship session! … I hope it has the same effect on you! (You might want to pause a time or two as you read what David had to say, close your eyes, and imagine the scenery… and if you’ve got a really good imagination and you breathe deep you might even say that you smell the scents of spring and harvest). I’ve labeled this portion of Psalm 65 “A Song of Spring and Harvest”…

“By awesome deeds You answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation…the hope of all the ends of the earth! … You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy! You visit the earth and water it – You greatly enrich it! You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth! You crown the year with Your bounty! Your wagon tracks overflow with abundance [at harvest time]! The pastures of the wilderness overflow! The hills gird themselves with joy! The meadows clothe themselves with flocks! The valleys deck themselves with grain! They shout and sing together for joy!” (From Psalm 65:5-13 ESV)

Enjoy! Just was wonderful worship therapy for an ol’ farm boy! But really, ANYONE who loves nature and God’s wonderful creation can enjoy that!
