Yearning for God




Pslam 63 is my favorite Psalm. It portrays a beautiful picture of how we as Christians should be longing to know God and deeply desire to spend time with Him.
Thought I would share it with you today...
 

 1O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
 
 2To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
 
 3Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
 
 4Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
 
 5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
 
 6When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
 
 7Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
 
 8My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
 
 9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
 
 10They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
 
 11But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
