Vs. 1, “Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.” This psalm is a song of thanksgiving. But it is also a prophetic psalm in that it awaits the fulfilment of all creation giving praise to the Lord Jesus when He returns! David looked around at God’s beautiful creation (bountiful harvest, refreshing rivers, green pastures, roaring seas)…and couldn’t help but appreicate all that God gave to us.
Regarding application…We Are Forgiven. Vs. 3, “When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.” Is it that simple? I would say yes! Why do we go around living our stress filled, worrisome lives day in and day out? Because we have forgotten that we are forgiven….WE ARE FORGIVEN! Praise God, Hallelujah! We were once lost, but now were found by the forgiveness of sins through our Lord Jesus Chirst! It makes you think about how we live each day. How can we not pour out our thanksgiving & appreciation each day our lives. For the Creator of the Universe has forgiven & given us life and life eternal! We are here simply because of God’s forgivness. Let’s live this life appreciating all of what God has given us!
