God of My Life
Psalms 42 As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God...
Life isn't going along smoothly for the psalmist in Psalm 42. He talks about his tears and how people are taunting him about following God. Quite clearly he is downhearted and in turmoil. But did you notice the words of verse 8? "By day the LORD commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life." I love that verse and particularly how the psalmist recognizes the personal nature of his relationship with God when he says "God of my life." And really, we see that throughout Psalm 42 with the way the psalmist tells God exactly what's on his heart.
What does God being "the god of my life" mean for you? Are you approaching and talking with God like the psalmist? Tami
