The longing


Psalm 63:1-8 O God, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.
So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.

Because Your loving kindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.

When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me.

Today I want to encourage you to mediate on this Psalm with all your heart, mind, strength and soul! My prayer is you will feel the love and devotion that God desires to share with His children. We are heirs (Romans 8:17) to His kingdom and amazing grace that has set us free to aggressively receive His love.

** If you are in need of prayer (Ephesians 6:18), please click“Prayer Request.”  I would love to pray for you. Please remain secure in the promise that all prayer request are kept confidential. I also ask that you think of others whom you can share this message with.

To God be the glory, amen!

  1. Hello Lionel! Thank you for sharing this lovely Psalm. This Psalm encourages me to seek God the same way that we are instructed to pray. Scripture tells us to pray continually. I thank God for the Holy Spirit’s promptings and His guidance; He prays for us when we don’t know what to pray, just when we are at our lowest.
