“You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.”
-crown in Hebrew is written as atarah which means a metallic diadem that is decorated with jewels & worn by a person in authority. The word crown has been used innumerable times in the Bible including:- a holy crown was worn on top of a turban by priests (Exo 29:6; 39:30; Lev 8:9), an Amalekite killed king Saul & took his crown to king David (2 Sam 1:10), Joash was crowned king of Judah (2 Kin 11:12), a good wife is a crown to her husband (Pro 12:4), grandchildren are crowns to their grandparents (Pro 17:6 ), old age is a crown (Pro 16:31), riches are crowns to the wise (Pro 14:24), goodness of God is a crown to us (Ps 65:11), Gods lovingkindness & mercy is a crown to His people (Ps 103:4 ), the Lord will be a crown of glory to His remnants (Isa 28:5 ) etc.
-As we begin this year, the Lord reminds us that He has crowned the year with His goodness & abundance. He calls us to shed off all fear & anxiety; & be hopeful & at peace for He is in control. God has prepared many marvelous things for us who love Him & are called according to His purpose. God is giving us abundance in every aspect that no eye has seen, no ear has heard, & no human mind has conceived these things & calls us only to believe in Him & partake of His deep things through the help of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 2:9-10).
Praise the Lord oh my soul & do not forget all His benefits. Forgive us all our sins Jesus & remember them no more; we humbly implore You. Heal all our diseases & anxieties; & redeem our lives, families, churches & nation from the pit. You have crowned this year with Your goodness & given us abundant grace, health, wealth, deep wisdom, faith, peace, love & many other gifts & fruit; we exult Your holy name Lord. Renew our strength & our youth like an eagle, we humbly ask You Father. You have crowned us with Your love & compassion, & have satisfied the desires of our hearts with good things, be magnified in all the heavens & all the earth; King of all glory. Amen
