Psalms 63:1-2 - "Oh God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirst for thee, my flesh long for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; 2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary."
The Psalms always give us comfort, peace, healing, deliverance, and hope; yet it always originates from the painful experiences of godly men.
Usually every Psalm we have is from men of God who have went through some difficult times in their life.
They were crushed and bended on every side by the tough situations they faced, and the product of their struggle was prayer, praise, a testimony of deliverance, and invaluable lessons on how to trust God when such situations arise.
God allows His people to go through such situations to create such beautiful psalms for the coming generations.
Let us think what outcome, legacy, and footprint we will leave for the next generation. The next generation is watching our spiritual life carefully.
God tests us to find out who we really are. Only when we go through such painful experiences do our true spiritual maturity really show.
People can act or pretend as being spiritual, but only those who are truly spiritually mature can stand with God in such situations.
There is true story that happened in the ancient times when the Mughal kingdom reigned India.
Once up on a time, a stranger came to the king’s palace and challenged the king to find out what the man’s native language was, since the man was fluent in 20 different Indian languages.
The King was troubled, so he called his advisor and presented the issue before him. The clever advisor said, “Dear King, don’t worry, I will take care of this issue.”
The advisor brought the stranger into the palace, gave him good food, and showed him his room to rest.
After some time, the stranger fell into a deep sleep. The advisor snuck into the room, and threw cold water on the sleeping man’s face. Suddenly the man shot up and expressed his anger in the Gujarati language.
The advisor then told the king that his native tongue was Gujarati.
When we get angry or when we are in trouble, our true nature will reveal itself, and so will our true spirituality.
Psalm 63:1-2 - "Oh God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee."
Just like any T-Mobile or Sprint phone has a connection through its network satellite in space, no matter where we are, we as God’s children have a constant and divine connection to our heavenly satellite.
When I traveled out of country and reached Dubai, before anyone else knew, a message came to my phone welcoming me to Dubai. When I reached India, a T-Mobile satellite knew that I had reached India.
Likewise, we cannot hide from the divine satellite. Which means God knows our feelings, our pain, our hurt even when no one else in this world knows – call upon Him, He is there to respond to your call.
He knows our every step. He knows our thoughts, your words your actions – the divine satellite is more powerful than any of the United States' intelligence satellite in space.
Know that without His knowledge nothing will happen in your life. God knows His own!
