Synopsis Psalms 64:9-66:11 11/3/2021
King David believed that God’s chosen people owed Him praise. For him, it was a matter of indebtedness. All have sinned. And only God can pardon sins.
God answers repentance with good things that bless the entire earth. In particular, God makes the earth fertile with blessings of rain and sun that produce flocks and grain.
And so, the psalmist expressed this same joy. He recognized awe and wonder in the presence of God.
David looked at the same evidence available to all the people of his time. But he interpreted what he saw in a uniquely different way. Specifically, David allowed himself to be awed by God.
I walk through my days like the only thing that matters is my to-do list. This is dangerous.
It’s not the to-do list. It’s my attitude.
“Confess the power of God, whose majesty protects Israel, whose power is in the sky. Awesome is God in his holy place, the God of Israel, who gives power and strength to his people. Blessed be God!” Psalm 68:35
