Devotions for Psalms 63:1-5, #2

2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.

Imagine the comparison of this verse to yesterday’s, where David is looking around the barren and dry landscape, and now he remembers the power of God in his sanctuary. David then begins to remember the afterglow of being in God’s presence.

And praise naturally follows.

David looks not at his own situation, but looks instead to God. Just the memory of being in his presence is enough to overwhelm his feelings of loneliness and desolation.

Lord, overwhelm and defeat my loneliness with your presence. I look to you as my hope, and to do amazing things in my life.
