REFLECTIONS ON TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

Psalms is a book filled with emotion. The authors express negative emotions such as their frustration that arise from doubts, bears, anxieties, and unanswered questions.

But, the biblical authors are just as likely to express positive emotions such as love, passion, joy, and so much more.

In our verse for the day, we see the Psalmist filled with joy and passion. He realizes that his God has always meant for us to enjoy Him. And the Psalmist is painting a very powerful word picture to express just how much he wants to experience and enjoy his God.

Psalm 63:1 (CSB) “God, you are my God; I eagerly seek you. I thirst for you; my body faints for you in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.”


It’s almost like the Psalmist is a child desperately wanting to barge into a candy shop to satisfy his craving.

This may be a good time to do a little self-reflection. Are you currently enjoying your God? If not, have you experienced Him so powerfully that He is your all-consuming desire? Do you at least want to enjoy Him?

Even though there are aspects of religion to Christianity, it is a relationship at its core. God wants you to enjoy Him.

Why not spend some time today asking God to do whatever He must in your life to get you to a place where you can enjoy Him?
