Psalm 104:27-28


Rev. Scott Harbison

Let the psalmist be the one who reminds us that we have one being to thank for all we have . . . and that is God. We often think that our possessions come from the sweat of our brow. We love our ownership of things.

In a society that is based on consumerism and economic theory, it is easy to forget that the blessings we enjoy come foremost from God. It is God who sustains us, it is God who feeds us, it is God who gives us all that we need.

Maybe we need to read this Psalm and get back a touch of humility. We often like to think we are masters of our destiny and we sustain ourselves through our own cleverness and ingenuity. The Psalmist states it as plainly as possible . . . it's not us, "Silly", it is God. May we always look to Him who blesses and sustains us and may we always remember to give thanksgivings through tithes, offerings and worship to the Lord our God.

Psalm 19:1
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

We remember God's promise of comfort
and provision for us as we recover from
the floods of this past week.

A Closing Prayer    


We thank you God,
that although the storms of life do come,
so also does the rainbow through the rain.

Be with us in your compassionate presence
and give us trusting hearts;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.                         by Mark H. Landfried from Let Us Pray
