…But they shall be destroyed who seek my life,
they shall go into the depths of the earth;
They shall be delivered over to the sword,
and shall be the prey of jackals.
The king, however, shall rejoice in God;
everyone who swears by him shall glory,
but the mouths of those who speak falsely shall be stopped.
This ends Psalm 63. The theme of longing for God and being in a wilderness situation might resonate with some readers.
Throughout this Psalm we see a praise of and rejoicing in our Creator.
He is all powerful, and He meets every need. Regardless of any person or circumstance we know might not be good for us, when we keep our eye on God and His goodness, we will prevail.
By this stage of Lent, we might realize the humans we are. Good intentions might be all we have to show for our Lenten plans. But, guess what?
God sees the intention. And He smiles.
So, keep trying –whatever you are doing for Him this season– keep trying. The end result is not as important as the longing to do something good for our Creator.
