On April 22, I wrote a blog post here titled “Under the Shadow of Your Wings.” This post was spurred by these darling new chicks that we’d recently purchased, and it turned into a post giving thanks to God for caring for us as our daughter has some scary medical conditions going on.
That evening, we once again read from our Dinner Table Devotions book. That night’s devotion’s first scripture passage was from Psalm 63 – the very Psalm I had just quoted in my blog post! I love the Lord so much!
As though, that was not incredible enough, Psalm 63:5 reads
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips.
which has become a precious verse to me as I continue to pursue being satisfied in Jesus, rather than in junk food.
May I encourage us all to flee from idolatry, from anything that tries to take Jesus’ place in our life. There is nothing that can quench our thirst, or satisfy our hunger, like the Lord and His Word. I fear that sometimes we’re so busy chasing after the fleeting pleasures of this life, that we have no time or energy left for Jesus.
