Psalm 63 A Psalm of David

 

Psalm 63 is a warrior Psalm. It speaks of David as a seeker of the Lord–desiring to be in His presence and in His shelter. “There are many who rise up against me, O Lord”.

King David speaks of seeing the Lord in His sanctuary; of praising the Lord with song. He speaks of how Godwill destroy his enemies and stop all of their lies. Don’t we all all need this Sovereign protection? As the worship songsays, “Our GOD is greater, all our GOD is stronger, our GOD is higher than any other”.

Trust In The LORD and in the power of His might.  Charlene

Psalm 63
New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 63
Psalm 63[a]

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

9 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.
