O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:1-4 (NIV)
I will seek you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I will seek you with all that is within me. I will seek you in the morning, I will seek you in the noon time. I will seek you in the evening. I will seek you all day long. Why is it that you so passionately and persistently and consistently want to seek me? You have placed this desire within me. This desire that is within me has been given to me as a gift. There could be no greater gift than to have a heart that seeks you. I could not have dreamed up this desire. I could not have created this desire within me. Yet here it is. The thirst I have for you is like a thirsty person crawling across a sun scorched desert floor in search of water. I can’t get enough of you. I want to know you. I want to love you. I want to follow and serve you. I want to live my life with and for you. And not just a little bit either. My desire for you is all consuming. There is no place I would rather be than in your presence. There is nothing I would rather do than be with you. I will follow you to where you lead me. I will do whatever you ask of me. If I have overstated my passionate desire for you or my willingness to do whatever you ask of me; then I ask that you will make what I have said to be absolutely true. Help me to know you intimately. Help me to walk with you closely. Do you believe that I will hear and answer your prayer? Will I do for you what you ask of me? Yes, I do believe. Why would you not start what you have begun? You have made me this way. You have placed these desires within me. Surely, you will complete this good work that you have begun in me. There is no doubt within me that if I seek you with all my heart, I will find you. You will show yourself to me. You will allow me to know you intimately. Yes, I will hear and answer this prayer of yours. For all of this, I give you all honor and praise and glory. I will lift up my hands to you as I bow down to worship you. You are my God and Father. Yes, I am. I am your child. Yes, you are. Thank you, Heavenly Father.
Heavenly Father, you are my God. Yes, I will earnestly seek you with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. I will seek you with all that is within me. Because your love is better than life, praise and glory to you will be on my lips as I raise my hands to worship you. Amen
