Psalm 61 May 14, 2008

I was just reading through this Psalm this morning and it just spoke to me so I figure I would throw it up here.  I was struck once again with how it is ALL about the Lord.  It is Him who leads us and sustains up, who provides for us and called us out of darkness into light!  I loved the distinction that David makes between his cry and his prayer in verse 1.  I don’t think I cry out to God much….

1 “Hear my cry, O God,
   listen to my prayer;
2 from the end of the earth I call to you
   when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
   that is higher than I,
3 for you have been my refuge,
   a strong tower against the enemy.

 4 Let me dwell in your tent forever!
   Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! 
5 For you, O God, have heard my vows;
   you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

 6 Prolong the life of the king;
   may his years endure to all generations!
7 May he be enthroned forever before God;
   appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!

 8 So will I ever sing praises to your name,
   as I perform my vows day after day.”
