Psalm 63:1 God, you are my God who I seek.
people who grow up in the church take certain things completely for
granted. For example, we expect to feel the Spirit of God everywhere
we go, although we do not necessarily seek after Him.
In Psalm 63, David prayed, "God, you are my God who I seek."
At his point of time, David was in the wilderness and he poured his
heart out before God.
Throughout the whole psalm, David asserts that he felt God's presence
there in the wilderness just if he were in the sanctuary. In his life,
he made the most of every opportunity to praise his creator from his
whole heart. He did not allow himself to be hindered by any circumstances
to exalth his God and to serve Him with his whole life.
Then I read in the gospel of Mark, chapter 8, how the Pharisees went
to Jesus, after He had fed the masses of people with seven loaves of
bread and a few fish, and had demanded a sign from heaven from Him.
All that was important to them was sensation and show, and they obviously
saw this as a type of entertainment. He sighed and answered them saying,
that this generation always looks for a sign.
Believe me, I'm fully convinced that wherever we find ourselves, whether
we happen to be outside and give a testimony or in the worship service,
if we ask God for a sign, whether it is He who is speaking to us, then
He will give a sign. The key for that is that we truly seek for Him
and His guidance.
I challenge you today that wherever you now are, or in whatever situation
you are in at this present moment, or whatever you are doing, seek and
trust God. mb
