Zion's Praise Ready for Her Lord
Psalm 65:1-13
Praise waits for you, O God, in Sion: and to you shall the vow be performed.

If not always soaring we may be as birds ready for an instant flight, always with wings, if not always on the wing. Our hearts should be like the beacons made ready to be fired. When invasion was expected in the days of Queen Elizabeth, piles of wood and combustible material were laid ready on the tops of certain hills, and watchmen stood prepared to kindle the piles should there be notice given that the ships of the enemy were in the offing. Everything was in waiting. The heap was not made of damp wood, neither had they to go and seek kindling; but the fuel waited for the match. The watch-fire was not always blazing, but it was always ready to shoot forth its flame. Have ye never read, "Praise waiteth for Thee, O God, in Zion"? So let our hearts be prepared to be fired with adoring praise by one glimpse of the Redeemer's eyes.

( C. H. Spurgeon.)
