Psalm 63:3 – Better than Life

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 30:12‐33:12, Galatians 5:1‐12, Psalm 63:1‐11, Proverbs 23:22

Context: David writes that his soul is experiencing a dry time and he is thirsting for God.

Psalm 63:3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
 my lips will praise you.

Observation:

Even in tough times, God’s steadfast love (loving kindness, goodness) is:

  1. Better than life
  2. Motivates praise

Apply: I want to spend time reflecting on God’s love for me.   I need to praise God with my lips as an overflow of my recognition of God’s steadfast love.

When the last time you spent time thinking about how much God loves you?
