Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
We want it. Now! All the way! Though Psalm 147:1-11 speaks of the assurance we can have, that all God's promises sare good and that he meets his people's needs, the provision we receive may not appear immediate or complete.
In verse 3 God binds up wounds. They are still there, but bandaged. In verses 8-9 God makes everything grow, but it is not ready for harvest, much less sitting on the table.
God normally works through what we would see as natural processes. He turns water into wine, but over the period of time as the vine grows, sets fruit, it ripens, comes to harvest, and is processed and aged. God heals us, but it is often gradual. Yet he does it.
While we wait on God's care for us, we sing praises to Him. It is pleasant and fitting (v. 2). He's at work.
