Studying Psalm 65 (5 Mar)


What are some of the key ideas or words that have been repeated throughout the Psalm?

Key idea of God abundant blessing:
v9 …you enrich it abundantly
v11 …and your cart overflows with abundance
v12 …the grasslands of the desert overflows
v13 …and the valleys are mantled (covered) with grain


This may have been written by David to be sung annually when the first grain of the year’s barley harvest was brought to the Lord and waved by the priest as a dedication offering. It is a song of harvest blessing in celebration of God’s goodness to His people.

God provides abundantly. Be thankful for His many blessings


Subject : How does God provide abundantly?
Atonement for our sins (v1-4)
-when we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions (v3)
Awesome deeds of God’s power (v5-8)
-He answers our prayer with awesome deeds of righteousness (v5)
Abundant provision of harvest (v9-13)

Application :
Do you feel as though God could never forgive you, that your sins are too many, or that some of them are too great?
The good news is that God can and will forgive them all
