“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” (Psalm 65:5, ESV). David continues to extol the God who answers prayer and lifts up those who call upon Him. As he speaks of the great scope of God’s works, He reflects on the Lord’s power displayed in creation (v.6) and His providential care in the bounty of the earth (vv.9-13). God is generous, and His common grace overflows in this world; how much more should we wonder at His special grace to those who receive His redemption.
God’s mercy is so abundant, His grace so vast. Reflect on the wonderful generosity of His care for you, in the ordinary things of life, in the goodness of the world He has created and continually sustains; then reflect upon the marvelous mercy of His gift of salvation in Jesus Christ our Lord. May the mercy of God fill you with hope ever-new.
