What do you have waiting for God?
In Psalm 65 David proclaims to God that praise awaits him from the hearts of his people. What do you have waiting for God as you prepare for worship? David’s heart is full with the blessings of God. The blessings that David speaks of are ones that are shared by all of God’s people – rich or poor.
Your sins have been forgiven when they overwhelmed you. You have been made royalty by virtue of your relationship to Christ. You have had the treasures of heaven bestowed upon you. Your future has been made secure by the deposit guaranteed by the Holy Spirit.
Praise is indeed the appropriate state of your heart. Praise for these truths is to mark God’s people. May we join with David and have our hearts full of praise to give to our heavenly father!
Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion;
to you our vows will be fulfilled.
You who answer prayer,
to you all people will come.
When we were overwhelmed by sins,
you forgave our transgressions.
Blessed are those you choose
and bring near to live in your courts!
We are filled with the good things of your house,
of your holy temple.
