MY SOUL HAS THIRSTS OF THE LORDPsalm 63: 2-12
At that time, King David was surrounded by lots of problems, but we can see here that in God David acquire the conviction to explore his future life. We must learn two reasons:
1) My soul has thirsts of the Lord
Surrounded by problems, instead of being crushed, David took a good disposition of heart; he did not let his heart, his soul, being carried away by the problems. Rather his soul yearned for the Lord and received joy in God, hope, conviction, as it gives water to those who are thirsty (2) or food to the hungry (6) refuge to weary travelers (8). His soul felt the strength in God. What is your fastest way to get away when you are surrounded by many problems of life?
2) He remembers the Lord on his bed (7)
For David and the soldiers, God was always a help. In early morning, David offered his prayer and before he slept, he remembered the Lord. We feel that David looked like a little baby hugged by his mother. The way of sleep was very peaceful. Do you remember the Lord like it on your bed?
Prayer: Lord, the more there are many problems for me, the more my soul longs for you, and the more I can find the strength that comes from you. Help me to always remember you on my bed
One Word: remember the Lord on your bed.
