My lips shall praise thee, thus will I bless thee----, I will lift up my hands in Thy Name. This reminds me of Moses raising his staff, and as long as he held it up, the Israelites were winning the battle, but when his arms grew weary they would start to lose. So others came along side him to hold up his arms. We so often need the prayers and support of others when we grow weary and weak. Even Jesus asked for the disciples' prayers when he fought the battle within Himself on Gesthemane, but they fell asleep.
Praising and blessing the Lord is a powerful form of spiritual battle as well. I used to have an obscene phone caller. As soon as I heard him I would start praising and blessing the Lord on the phone till he would hang up on me. Once this strategy was a part of God's battle plans as well. God also used this in 2 Chron 20:21-22. The armies of Jehoshaphat were to stand still while singers praised the beauty of God's holiness. The opposing armies fought among themselves and destroyed each other. So stand and see the salvation of God! And having done all, to stand (firmly in place, holding your ground.) Eph 6:13 AMP
63:5 God's word is meat indeed. It is rich and flavorful.
63:7 I once watched a mama Mallard lead her ducklings accross a Walmart parking lot toward a golf course on the other side. Her wings were outspread with the ducklings hiding beneath from scorching sun and predators.
63:8 follow hard. Amp Bible also gives adhere to as a definition of believe--to trust in, adhere to and rely upon are certainly not passive. Saving faith is an active trusting faith. John 1:12 We trust in Christ's character as revealed in the Gospels, and He came to reveal the Father to us. They are trustworthy. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. Acts 16:31
Thank you Jady

Praise & Glory to God in the Highest!I honestly was paying no attention that this was a study forum-lol & thought is was the Praise section & I was just having a good ole time reading & praising....especially that David is probably my all time favorite & I could read the accounts of His lifetime over & over and I enjoy it just as much as the first time I heard it from my fathers lips when he used to read "Bible Stories"to me as a little girl........I love the Psalms dearly & just know the ones that David wrote......His reverence & awe of the Almighty is only equaled by his passion & intimacy for the only One who never left his side,even in his sin against God (Uriah the Hittite)................
Thanks for posting the lovely study & your observations,clearly these are the latter days and his being driven from his kingdom by his own beloved son,Absalom.....11 Samuel 15:23 also lends to the account of Davids wilderness experience.But I just wanted to say that I enjoyed what you have shared...............Amen Sister
With love,in Christ-Kwik

Lovely psalms to read. You have nicely broken it down into detail. As I recall the one story concerning David being chased by Saul in the wilderness because he didnt want david to be king and how remarkable to see David write down the pain and suffering he had to endure of his hardships and how he turned to God for strength. And here we are reading with delight for encouragement in our own dispairs in life. It's all amazing to me. I love it.
King James Version (KJV)
63 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth 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.
3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
