Thirsty – Lift Up Your Hands!

July 8, 2012

I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah -Ps 143:6 NKJV

… I thirst for You as parched land thirsts for rain -Ps 143:6 NLT …

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God{to drink in His presence}? -Ps 42:1-2

O God, You are my God, earnestly I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; my whole body longs for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water. I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory. Because experiencing Your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise You. For this reason I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.-Ps 63:1-4

The lifting up of your hands to the Lord;

  • An indication of of wholehearted thirst after the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • A reflection of the lifting up of your heart and soul to be touched and filled. Jesus Christ alone, the fountain of living water, satisfies.

    Let each morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul. -Ps 143:8

    How precious is Your unfailing love, O God! All people find shelter in the shadow of Your wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them drink from the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light. -Ps 36:7-9

The lifting up of your hands to the Lord;

  • A banner of praise to bless and be blessed by the Lord.

    He blesses you; therefore, be zealous to bless him -Spurgeon

… I bless You every time I take a breath; My arms wave like banners of praise to You. -Ps 63:4 MSG

Behold, bless{affectionately and gratefully praise} the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, you who serve as night watchmen in the house of the LORD. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless the LORD.

May the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth, bless you from Zion. -Ps 134

Stand up and bless the LORD your God Forever and ever! Blessed be Your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise! -Neh 9:5

I Lift Up My Soul

Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love,

Sorrow may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning -Ps 30:5

for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; may Your good Spirit lead me in the land of uprightness. -Ps 143:10

You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand. -Ps 16:11

Psalm 86:4-5 Bring joy to Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. For You, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on You.

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: because of the LORD’s great love{mercy} we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness! Lam 3:21-23

Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. -Ps 90:14
