Hunger for God

Psalm 63:1 ESV
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

Psalm 63:9 ESV
But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth

Psalm 63:1 ESV
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

1. Being in God’s Presence

Psalm 63:2 ESV
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.

2. Valuing What Really Matters

Psalm 63:3 ESV
Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.

3. Expressing Your Worship to God

Psalm 63:4 ESV
So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.

C.S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms
“I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation. It is not out of compliment that lovers keep on telling one another how beautiful they are; the delight is incomplete till it is expressed. It is frustrating to have discovered a new author and not to be able to tell anyone how good he is; to come suddenly, at the turn of the road, upon some mountain valley of unexpected grandeur and then to have to keep silent because the people with you care for it no more than for a tin can in the ditch; to hear a good joke and find no one to share it with. . . Fully to enjoy is to glorify. In commanding us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him.”

Psalm 63:5 ESV
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips
