Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 63)

13 Nov

Psalm 63

A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.

You, God, are my God,screen-shot-2016-09-10-at-6-44-47-am
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
    and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;
    I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
    I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
    your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
    they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
    and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
    all who swear by God will glory in him,
    while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

    Interesting, Dr. Dixon, that my pastor has been doing a 15-week series on the Psalms. I’ve observed this phenomenon before; the Holy Spirit inspires coordinates the messages given in various places to the body of Christ!
