Today’s Message with Rev. Emma Ogiemudia

Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness. 12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.” (Psalm 65:11-13, KJV)

This verse goes to explain something about God’s setting, His principle, how He works. It shows also of His love towards us as a people.

That God crowns the year, He graces the year with His goodness. This is a default setting with God. It is of His sovereignty He does this; That He graces the year end with His goodness. However, it is, God graces the year end with His goodness. That means, you and I should expect, knowing how God works, that at the year, He always graces the year with His goodness so, I should expect goodness this month. Because, by His own design and by His own sovereignty, He crowns the year with His goodness. I should expect goodness to alight upon me more and more in this month.

If in any area, you have been expecting a goodness and have not seen it yet, in this month you should have double expectation. God does this. At the years end, He gives out goodness. He crowns the year with His goodness so, we can expect it. It is what He does.

As the year ends some persons have mixed feelings, regrets, trepidation. Do not be. Be assured rather that this God you serve crowns and graces the year ends with His goodness.

We saw last month from Psalm 103. This scripture gives a picture of what the ‘goodness’ can entail. There we see Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases” (Psalm 103:1-3, KJV)

Forget not all His benefits. This I echo and re-echo What you forget, you may not attain to. Do not forget His benefits. Men are prone to forgetting things but He says, be disciplined to not forget all His benefits.

He crowns the year with His goodness, His benefits and it goes on to explain what they are. Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases” (Psalm 103:3, KJV)

The word here, to forgive is to discharge, to divorce from what binds you, so, if you were bound by something that is not good, you are divorced, discharged and cut off from it. There is a separation. If hitherto you were bound by something and unable to move nor achieve, that thing is divorced from you. The word iniquity is used to describe that which is that ought not to be – and it is often evil. And the Lord says He forgives, He divorces you from those things that are but should not be.
