MY SOUL LONGETH FOR THEE

*

Psalm 42

As the hart panteth after the water brooks,

so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God,

for the living God:

when shall I come and appear before God?

My tears have been my meat day and night,

while they continually say unto me,

Where is thy God?

When I remember these things,

I pour out my soul in me:

for I had gone with the multitude,

I went with them to the house of God,

with the voice of joy and praise,

with a multitude that kept holyday.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul?

and why art thou disquieted in me?

hope thou in God:

for I shall yet praise Him

for the help of His countenance.

O my God, my soul is cast down within me:

therefore will I remember Thee from the land of Jordan,

and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts:

all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time,

and in the night his song shall be with me,

and my prayer unto the God of my life.

I will say unto God my rock,

Why hast thou forgotten me?

why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

As with a sword in my bones,

mine enemies reproach me;

while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?

Why art thou cast down, O my soul?

and why art thou disquieted within me?

hope thou in God:

for I shall yet praise him,

who is the health of my countenance,

and my God.

My prayer used to be that the Lord would

“rend the heavens and come down,”

but He has already done that hasn’t He?

 Jeremiah said:

Call unto me, and I will answer thee,

and show thee great and mighty things,

which thou knowest not.

~ Jeremiah 33:e

My prayer and desire is to see an awakening

that will sweep this nation and go global

as in days gone by, and in greater measure.

 Grant it Lord Jesus.

 Amen
