pursued in the wilderness

David wrote this psalm while he was hiding from King Saul the the wilderness. King Saul wanted to kill David.

These are the verses that seem to stand out to me.

Maybe this psalm can speak to you if you too are in the "wilderness"

Psalm 63

1 O God, you are my God;

  I earnestly search for you.

My soul thirsts for you;

  my whole body longs for you

in this parched and weary land

  where there is no water.

2 I have seen you in your sanctuary

  and gazed upon your power and glory.

3 Your unfailing love is better than life itself;

  how I praise you!

4 I will praise you as long as I live,

  lifting up my hands to you in prayer.

5 You satisfy me more than the richest feast.

  I will praise you with songs of joy.

6 I lie awake thinking of you,

  meditating on you through the night.

7 Because you are my helper,

  I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.

8 I cling to you;

  your strong right hand holds me securely.
