Sanctuary: The Land Shouts
1 : a place (as a church or a temple) for worship
2 : a place of refuge and protection
Welcome to my sanctuary this week. Meditating on the beauty He’s created and the power of His words…
Psalm 65:11-13 (VOICE)
You crown the year with a fruitful harvest;
the paths are worn down by carts overflowing with unstoppable growth.
Barren desert pastures yield fruit;
craggy hills are now dressed for celebration.
Meadows are clothed with frolicking flocks of lambs;
valleys are covered with a carpet of autumn-harvest grain;
the land shouts and sings in joyous celebration.
The land celebrates Your generosity and abundance.
Deserts yield fruit when You are near.
Whatever I see, I will shout Your goodness and grace.
The world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car; a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel. They expect little and as a result they get little.
What’s your sanctuary this week? What thought, verse, etc. are you meditating on?
