1 You, God, are my God,
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.
2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.
1 – What similarities do you notice between Psalms 42-43 and Psalm 63?
2 – List the responses of the psalmists in the dark of night in Psalm 63:6-8 and Psalm 42:8.
3 – List the things that God does in these same verses.
Prayer – Lord, thank you for the command of your love, your song, your help, and that you uphold me and hide me in the shadow of your wings. As one who is loved and sheltered by You, I will sing! I will worship. I remember you, I cling to you, and I pray to you.
Let us do so in prayer and in song with – It is Well (click here) by Matt Redman.
