The words of this Psalm have been one that I have recited often.....the part where it talks about " my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; " resonates with me as I have spent time in Egypt, Bahrain, Kuwait, UAE, Iraq & now Afghanistan....
Read the words of those who knew our savior and be humbled....This Psalm is the answer to the murderous thugs of the Taliban. They will find out when it comes their time to answer for their crimes when they meet their maker.....inshalla indeed.
1O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
7Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
