Psalms 63:1 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.
It is not sufficient to acknowledge that God is God of the universe; we must make Him our God. He wants a personal relationship with us. David made Him his God by cultivating a personal relationship with Him. In Psalms 63:1 he says “O God, thou art my God”. Here David did not only refer to God as the God of the universe, by saying “thou art my God” it is clear that David made Him his God and had a personal relationship with him.
David in his expression to God identified two ways in which he made God his God. He started by saying “early will I seek thee”. What the scripture was indicating was that one way in which David made God his God was by making seeking Him his first priority. Additionally, seeking God involves more than seeking God’s face, it also includes seeking his laws and principles. What David was communicating was that he had made God his God by making seeking His presence and principles his top priority.
The second way in which David made God his God is by fostering a deep passion for God. He indicated that by saying “my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee”. He was expressing a deep passion for God. Do not just see God as God, like David make Him your God.
Life Application: Make God your God by cultivating a deep passion for Him and continually seek His presence and principles.
Prayer: Lord, you are my God. Early will I seek you as I commit my all to you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
