1. Psalm 71:3 Be my strong refuge, to which I may resort continually.
  2. And verse 14: But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more.
  3. I pulled out those two verses for both using the word continually. He is continually going to the place of refuge.
  4. Our reality is needing to turn to God again and again. It’s a continual turning our eyes to God, as this world we live in is unceasingly at work distracting us. We need to always be remembering who He is and what He’s done and making the choice again to lean on Him.
  5. But knowing that we can continually turn to Him and continually lean on Him, which is a way of saying abide in Him, gives us continual hope and ever-increasing praise!
  6. Part of the psalmist’s ever-increasing praise is to tell of God’s righteousness and salvation. He will speak of them all day long. The phrase used is that he does “not know their limits.” God’s salvation is limitless! Oh, that we would catch the vision of our limitless salvation! We have so great a salvation, and yet, so many see it as nothing but an escape from hell when they die.
  7. We have freedom from sin which gives us access to God to pray for whatsoever and to receive all the blessings of the heavenly places and to live a life of obedient service to the Lord Most High to bring Him glory and honor.
  8. There are multiple verses in Psalm 72 about helping the needy, delivering the needy, saving the needy, even saving their souls. If you don’t have a heart for the poor, you don’t have the heart of God.
  9. There is also a prayer for the whole earth to be full of His glory. That could happen because of what’s in verses six and seven.
  10. “He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing like shows that water the earth. In His days the righteous shall flourish and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more.”
  11. God Himself with come like rain, a rain that causes growth and flourishing and an abundance of peace that will never fade.
