Topic: ATTACHED TO GOD
Text: Psalms 63:1-11
1, 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;
5, My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
8, My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
I have found the scriptures interesting as the Holy Spirit gives me revelations through his word. The passage I am about to share here is one the scriptures that touched my spirit and increased my passion for God.
The Psalmist in our passage started by saying ‘ O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee…’ ‘ my soul thirsts for ‘ could be liken to ‘ my being thirsts for ‘, his total being desires God, he also said early will I seek thee, even my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.
This is the heart desire of everyone who truly loves and serves God, this is to mean; my commitment to God is genuine. It is a state of loving God for who he is, and not just what he can offer, it is like loving my wife and children, even when I am the one spending on them, I love them, that kind of love is not expecting anything in return, just love, I can’t do without them, I want them around me. The Psalmist here expresses a genuine desire for God.
Verse 8 of Psalm 63 strikes my spirit, look at it ; My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. The Psalmist said my soul, my total being, is FOLLOWING HARD after you, my soul has a strong feeling for God, it is a point of no going back, a point where nothing can separate one from God, a point where you just want to serve and please your maker.
Amplified version of the bible ‘ my soul is clings closely to God..’ And at this point God’s right hand upholds me, I can neither fail nor fall, because God’s supernatural hand upholds me, he will definitely bring me out of every unfavorable circumstance, that hand will wrought great victory in my life.
What a scripture ? Joy filled my heart when I discovered this scripture, and I began to pray ‘ Lord let my soul follow hard after you, verse 5 is very interesting, beloved, the bible is interesting, as you give time to it, you will find interesting promises of God for your life, from my teen ages I have been doing in depth study of the bible, it has over the years transformed my life.
As my soul thirsts after God this is what will happen, Look at it in verse 5 ; My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips. Satisfaction is inevitable, joy is not optional but mandatory. That is the outcome of seeking God wholeheartedly. What a way to live one’s life? I beseech you to seek God wholeheartedly.
* Lord, let my soul follow hard after you.
