The Greatest Need of Man Answered and Settled by God Part 7

Standard

Praise is due to you,a O God, in Zion,
and to you shall vows be performed.

O you who hear prayer,
to you shall all flesh come.

When iniquities prevail against me,
you atone for our transgressions.

Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
to dwell in your courts!
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
the holiness of your temple!

By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,
O God of our salvation,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas;

the one who by his strength established the mountains,
being girded with might;

who stills the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
the tumult of the peoples,

so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs.
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;
the river of God is full of water;
you provide their grain,
for so you have prepared 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.

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.
–Psalms 65:1-13

God’s Credibility
Last week we started God’s credibility on why we should trust Him the answer to our ultimate need. Here are two more:
Provider
you provide their grain,
for so you have prepared it. (v. 9)
Knowing God is powerful, we should acknowledge what He is capable of. Mere words is not enough to convince He is powerful. However by His awesome display of it we can see he is indeed credible. He is a provider. As we check verse 9 of chapter 65, we can see He provide grain. A simple search in the Bible yields that He is not just bound in providing grain or food for man. He provided everything we can set our eyes on. He provide it in some instances, more intimate. He provides it like a father to his son (Luke 11:9-13). If God can provide those basic need, how much more is the essential need of man that He can give.
Faithful
You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks overflow with abundance. (v.11)

Year after year He does it unwavering. He is truly faithful. Man may change but God maintains His consistancy. His name is on the line. If He becames unfaithful, He goes down to the level of a mere man that tumbles over his promises. He is faithful and we should be thankful for it. God is faithful to His elect (1 Cor. 1: 9 and 1 Th. 5:24).
