Psalm 63 (1)

Most Bibles say that Psalm 63 is a psalm of David and that it was written when he was in the desert of Judah. Why was David in the desert? Probably he was running away from one of his enemies who wanted to kill him.
In verse 1 David says, “God…I am searching so hard to find you…I thirst for you in this dry and weary land without water.” When people are in a desert, they often become dry and thirsty. But David was not looking for water. He was spiritually tired, and he was looking for God.
In verse 2, David remembers when he was close to God in the temple. When David thinks about this, he becomes happy and encouraged.
Sometimes we may feel that we are not close to God. We should look back to a time when we felt very close to God. Then we realize that God is still with us and that He will protect us.
