You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide the people with grain, for so you have prepared it.” vs. 12

Psalm 65:9-13

As the psalmist meditated on the wonders of the natural world he was overwhelmed by the way everything worked together in seamless fashion. There was sunlight and rain, rivers that seasonally watered the crops, and it was all under the direction of God. Because of what God had done, people had grain to eat and water to drink, and they were wise enough to respond with thanks and praise. As the years have passed we’ve continued to recognize the intricacies and the wonders of agriculture, and human life has flourished. In the course of time, by building dams, reservoirs and canals, and diverting the natural flow of streams, we’ve even been able to turn thousands of acres of desert into productive farmland. And, as has often been the case, our human tinkering with the intricate web of creation hasn’t always worked out for the best. Some would say that we’ve strained our resources to the breaking point and massively mismanaged the water supply as population centers have shifted. Many are realizing, perhaps for the first time, just how important water is for daily living, and are beginning to treat it as a most precious gift of God. Even unbelievers are learning new ways to conserve limited water resources!
