Ps.65:11 – You have crowned the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with fatness.

I have a huge expectancy in my heart for the next couple of years. I believe the next two years will be a payback for 2020 and 2021. Today’s passage describes the favor of God falling on a particular year. I have several years in my life that really stand head and shoulders above the rest. For me, 1973 and 1994 were the best. I was saved, married and called into the ministry in 1973. 1994 was kind of one of God’s pay back years. I had seen about seven tough years (1986 – 1993) and 1994 made me forget all of my trouble. The Lord visited us and crowned our year with His goodness. Here is how Matthew Henry describes this verse.

“Thus the springing of the year is blessed; and if the spring, that first quarter of the year, be blessed, that is an earnest of a blessing upon the whole year, which God is therefore said to crown with his goodness, to compass it on every side as the head is compassed with a crown, and to complete the comforts of it as the end of a thing is said to crown it. And his paths are said to drop fatness; for whatever fatness there is in the earth, which impregnates its productions, it comes from the out-goings of the divine goodness. Wherever God goes he leaves the tokens of his mercy behind him and makes his path thus to shine after him. These communications of God’s goodness to this lower world are very extensive and diffusive: They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness, and not merely upon the pastures of the inhabited land. The deserts, which man takes no care of and receives no profit from, are under the care of the divine Providence, and the profits of them redound to the glory of God…”

Henry seems to imply the first quarter of the year gives a good indication of what the year will hold. Keep your eyes on January – March of 2022, I think we may get a feel for where things will be going. One thing I know, the blessing of the Lord is so amazing that all of your troubles suddenly disappear. I believe all the sorrow of 2020 and 2021 will be swallowed up by the goodness of God. He will crown our year with His goodness.
