As we come to the final three verses of this Psalm of David in which we are encouraged to earnestly call to God in prayer with words that glorify Him. It has been so refreshing to be reminded of the greatness of God in our lives. As I commence my 70th year as a person living with Jesus, I am overwhelmed as I consider the goodness of God in my life. Especially in the last nine years of living by myself, when we remember His goodness in our lives there is so much to praise the Lord.  In Verse 5 David repeats Verse 3 which says: “Let the people praise you, O God, let all the peoples praise you “. Sadly human nature for what is, can at times become so familiar with the blessings of God and start to take them for granted. This is why we must choose some time each day to have a time of fellowship with the Lord. Lamentations 3:23 tells us that the Lord’s mercies: “They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness “. This is something that we must guard against, taking the presence of the Lord for granted. I realise there have been times when I have allowed the business of life to overshadow my love for my Saviour. I am so glad that He has sought me and brought me back to that close relationship with Him. It is interesting to note that  Verse 6 says: “Then the earth shall yield her increase; our own God shall bless us “. David is saying when the people bless the Lord, He blesses the land with increase.  It is interesting to note that the further Australia has gone from Christian values to ungodly ones, Australia has suffered the most severe droughts ever recorded followed by floods. The god of this world has blinded the eyes of a lot of people from the truth. We know the answer and that is people returning to the Lord. I have experienced the beginning of God starting to change things, over the last two Sundays there have been 30 people who have responded to the call to be born again. This is more than all of last year, God is certainly doing something new. The final Verse says: “God shall bless us, and all the ends of all the earth shall fear Him “. I am so excited from hearing reports from all over the world that God is beginning to move again. This Psalm encourages us to continually praise our God with an earnest attitude to always glorify God. We live at a time when we can live by the truth of this Psalm and see the greatness of our God manifested where we live. This is a time to put the past behind us and live in the now power of God because He desires to see His Glory all over the earth.
