Preparing for Easter ~ Place of Satisfaction

[Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations…from everlasting to everlasting  Psalm 90:1-2  

During this season of reflection and renewal, join me, and let's explore God’s Presence, our dwelling place. Are you dwelling in the presence of God? ~ Donna Howell Oswalt]

“God, You’re my God! I can’t get enough of You! I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God, traveling across dry and weary deserts.” Psalm 63:1 MSG

Although David is anointed king by the prophet Samuel, King Saul still remains on the throne and tirelessly attempts to kill David. Spending much time avoiding Saul, David lives in the wilderness of Judah, sometimes taking refuge in caves. What sustains David during these difficult times? David seeks God’s power and presence, His provision and protection. David embraces the contentment that fellowship with God brings.

Read Psalm 63 and discover how David’s thirst for God is satisfied because he recognizes God’s mercy and kindness and goodness are better than anything in life. As praises come from David’s lips, a deep satisfaction pours over him. God of mercy, my soul, too thirsts in the dry and weary places of this world. In Your presence I find rest and peace, I know fellowship and joy, I feel kindness and love. You are more than shelter, more than sustenance, more than security. Count me alive in Christ. You are the endless satisfaction for my soul.  ~dho
