An Active Relationship - Psalm 63

I often hear of others who KNOW they are saved. They know they have Jesus as their Savior, but they admit that they really don’t have much of a personal relationship with Him. I am afraid this is something all of us must develop. Relationships are developed by spending time with each other and sharing each other’s hearts. Please bear these in mind as you consider this simple outline of the 63rd Psalm.

Note the title of the Psalm - [[A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.]]
David was on the run…again! It is hard for us to imagine living this way. If nothing else, it would get our prayer lives on track. But really, aren’t we all on the run? We are running in circles, running to keep up, running to pursue dreams, running from our past, running to put out fires, running, running, running.

May I suggest that, rather than running, we become active in productive ways, building our relationship with Him? Here is what we find David actively doing, while on the run…

We find him:
Seeking   1
Thirsting   1
Longing   1
Seeing   2
Praising   3
Blessing   4
Lifting   4
Remembering   6
Meditating  6
Rejoicing  7
Following  8
Rejoicing  11
Swearing  11
Glorying  11

Let’s actively pursue the God Who is always pursuing us.
