Psalm 63:3-8 (NKJV) 3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. 4 Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. 6 When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. 7 Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. 8 My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.
This is one of David’s great rhapsodies of adoration. The lovingkindness of the Lord our God is better than anything this life can afford and the world has to offer. Our lips are best used in praising God Almighty. A life-time is not long at all to spend blessing God. Our hands pulsate with fulfillment when lifted up high to the Lord in praise and prayer. Fellowship with God is better than any gourmet dinner. No banquet is more satisfying than this sacred communion we have with God the Father by means of God the Son, Jesus Christ our Redeemer and Savior. Our souls are fed with the delights of God’s Word. It is spiritual nourishment to our souls. Our joyful lips respond with overflowing gratitude as we redeem the sleepless hours of night by thinking about God and meditating on all of the things He has done for us. What a wonderful help our glorious Lord has been to us. We can never count all of the times God has helped us. Oh, our souls ought to follow hard after the Lord for He is good to us. Covered by the refuge of His wings, we raise our joyful praises to God. And as we hold on dearly to the Lord in loving dependence and in mindful need, God preserves us from dangers seen and unseen. And He empowers us to press on toward the goal for the prize He has waiting for us.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
