Reflections on Psalms 66-70

Which psalm or verse especially reflects your heart today?  Use those words to talk to the Lord.

  • Praise the Lord – Psalms 66-68 give us numerous reasons to praise the Lord. We can praise him for his past deeds – especially answered prayers (66), for his many blessings (67), for his provisions, his deliverance, and his majesty (68).  Ponder these reasons.  Where have you seen these reasons in your life?  Then praise the Lord!
  • Purpose of Blessings – Often we want blessings for our own enjoyment, but Psalm 67 takes us beyond ourselves. We should seek blessings so that God’s way might be made known on the earth, so that the nations might see God’s saving power – and then praise him.  Is that your desire?  How might that desire affect your prayers?
