If weâ€™re honest, David could have been seeking after so manyÂ otherÂ things.
He had been wronged by someone very close to him and could have focused on making that wrong right and claiming his throne. Instead, we see David seeking after God. He doesnâ€™t focus on the negative in his life, rather, David says, â€œGod is my priority – not the throne, not my position. The thing Iâ€™m reaching out for is God and God alone.â€
Why would David place so much trust in God after suffering so?
The answer can be found in the first phrase of Psalm 63:
â€œO God, thou art my God.â€
In this statement, David is saying that God is his personal God.
When heâ€™s hurting – God is his healer.
When heâ€™s lonely – God is a present God.
When heâ€™s conflicted – God can bring peace to his life.
David is saying, â€œGod, all that You are, You are to me when I need it the most.â€Â
Deep down, do you believe that He is your God? That all you need, He is?
