Better Than Life

 O 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;

To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

 

Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.

But 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.

Psalm 63

  1. Oh how I loved reading your post this morning with the wonderful words of Psalm 63. Yes, early in the morning I will seek thee. Thanks for sharing.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

  2. On 9/16, 2am-4am, I experienced verses 5-7 in a personal way:
    “When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.”

  3. So glad that this verse ministered to you in a personal way… Isn’t it wonderful how the Lord comforts us through His Word! His love surrounds us and His timing is perfect.
    Peace and Blessings! -Faith :)
