Everything is Because of God!
As I was reading Psalms 65 this morning, the Holy Spirit enlightened my understanding: Everything is because of God. Every blessing, every good thing, every breath we take and even our very existence. From the beauty of nature to the blessing of spiritual gifts; it is all because of God. HE is our source, the author and finisher of our faith. His name is great and greatly to be praised.
I couldn't help myself. I just had to share this.
My Bible commentary says this about this chapter (and I didn't even read this part until just before I was going to share here):
"This is a praise psalm, full of hopeful, confident, even enthusiastic feelings in response to God's goodness with no complaints or curses. The setting is a celebration at the tabernacle, perhaps at Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread in the spring, or the Feast of Booths, or Tabernacle in the fall.
I. Praise for Spiritual Blessings (65:1-5)
II. Praise for Natural Blessings (65:6-13)"
