Psalms 63

 

 


Verses 1-11

Psalm 63

Psalm 63:1-6 — A Description of the Total Man Worshiping God- Psalm 63:2-6 describes a person totally given to worship. He worships God with his heart ( Psalm 63:1), eyes ( Psalm 63:2), his lips ( Psalm 63:3), his hands ( Psalm 63:4), his soul ( Psalm 63:5), his mouth ( Psalm 63:5) and with his mind ( Psalm 63:6).

Psalm 63:1 (A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.) 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;

Psalm 63:1 — "O God, thou art my God" - Comments- We must experience God as "our God," on a personal level, before we understand how good He is to us as His dear children.

Psalm 63:1 — "early will I seek thee" - Comments- We must seek God first above all else.

Psalm 63:1 — "my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is" - Comments- The things of this world seem empty and unable to satisfy our souls after we encounter the presence of God. Only those who have experienced the presence of God ( Psalm 63:2 a) know how dry the things of this world compare to His glory.

Psalm 63:1Comments- This psalm of David in exile in the wilderness uses descriptions from this arid land to figuratively describe his inner struggles.
