The Psalmist is reminding his readers that life’s wilderness is real regardless of one’s personal status in life and those who will handle it best are those that have unquestionable regimen, unmeasurable resources, and unshakable resolve.
In the Desert Vital to Survival is Your Unquestionable Regimen
O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. —Psalm 63:1
One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. —Psalm 27:4
Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually! —Psalm 105:4
Your survival in the desert storm and the easiness of overcoming it will completely depend on the kind of life’s regimen you already developed in your life in times of calm and peace. It is catastrophic for one to learn how to be strong when strength is a must needed commodity in the midst of storm.
In the Desert Vital to Survival is Your Unmeasurable Resources
My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. —Psalm 63:5
Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us” . . . Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! —John 14:8,9
for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. —Psalm 63:7
The greatest of all resources one needed most in the desert storm is that one who have attitude altering power, ever present, available, and all sufficient. The fact is even our outward circumstance never changes, our changed attitude toward circumstances verified by our past experiences is enough to make a sizeable difference.
In the Desert Vital to Survival is Your Unshakable Resolved
My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me. —Psalm 63:8
But you have upheld me because of my integrity and set me in your presence forever. —Psalm 41:12
Indecisiveness in the desert storm is absolutely disastrous. Unaskable resolve to trust in God in the midst of storm eliminates anxiety, intensifies dependence, and fortifies praise. When we cling to God and God clings to us, there is a double embrace; holding at each other makes us firmly upheld.
