my God

O God, you are my God,
earnestly i seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
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.
My soul will be 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. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

They who seek my life will be destroyed;
they will go down to the depths of the earth. They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.

But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God's name will praise him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

Psalm 63

Whoa... have you wondered why the WORD of God is so powerful? so compelling? so very intimate? I love that the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us. I love that God spoke the WORD and it was. Makes my words seem like gibberish. LOVE the Psalms.

What a powerful chapter!
David's complete desire for loving God is simply amazing. The realness in this passage IS AWESOME David is like I love you Lord ,more then anything and all my enemies are going to have violent deaths and are going to hell and I will 'rejoice in God'.
I just LOVE how God used people like David, through out the Bible. David makes mistakes and isn't afraid to tell it like it is. Yet God uses him in such a powerful way:) Praise the Lord for His amazing grace!
