My Soul Clings to God

Psalm 63:1-8

“​1 O God, you are my God, I seek you,
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4 So I will bless you as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on your name.
5 My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast,
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips
6 when I think of you on my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
7 for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.
8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.” NRSV

Yesterday, in our reading from Matthew, Jesus said, “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Here, the Psalmist is modeling what it means “to give God the things that are God’s.”
