The Song of the Satisfied Soul

Psalms 63

Intro:

The Writer and Occasion is stated in the Superscription

It Says “ A Psalm of David When he was in the Wilderness

of Judah

This Psalm, Just Like Chapter 62 probably belongs to the Time of Absolom’s Rebellion.

There are Several Reasons why this is thought to be when Absolom was rebelling

I. The Writer is a King vs.11

II. He is Away from Home and in a Weary Land vs.1

III. He Longs to be Back in the Sanctuary vs. 2

IV. Enemies Seek to kill Him vs. 9

V. He is Confident of their Overthrow vs. 9,10

VI. And he Himself Rejoices in God vs. 7

The Theme of this Psalm is Satisfaction

David with his loyal Followers have left Jerusalem by the Jericho Rd. which led through the Northern Oart of the Wilderness of Judah

This is the Same Wilderness where David Often Found Refuge from the Actions of Saul, But this Time He’s fleeing from his own Son

No Doubt his Heart was Heavy, No Doubt there were Many Obstacles Along the Way

But it’s in these times that the Grace of God Becomes Reality

I’m glad that The Grace of God Is Sufficient for Every Need

The Language of this Psalm Suggests that it was Written at Night Vs. 6 for Example

Under the Circumstance David Was not Likely to Sleep Restfully, and Yet his Soul Found Rest in Communion with God

David Did Not Stop Singing because he was in the Wilderness. But He Simply Adjusted his worship to fit the Situation.

Though there was a Desert all around DAVID SANG ON

Though the Enemy was hot on his trail DAVID SANG ON

The situation might have looked Hopeless But HE SANG ON

He was away from Home in a far country – BUT HE SANG ON

A SOUL THAT IS SATISFIED CAN SING NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE ARE!!!

THE OLD SONG SAYS “IF YOU CAN SING WHEN IT SEEMS THERE IS NOTHING TO SING ABOUT- THEN I’LL KNOW THAT YOU KNOW MY SAVIOUR”

I’m Glad that No matter what Comes to a Christian--YOU CAN KEEP YOUR SONG

I’m glad in the Dry & Dusty Wilderness of Life – We can still have a Song

I Want to Look at four things in this Chapter and preach

“MY SOUL IS SATISFIED”

I. CRAVING OF FELLOWSHIP - vs. 1-2

a. Communion

David’s Communion with God was so Sweet that he Wasn’t going to let the Desert Get Him Down

HEY!!! Aren’t You glad that God can be just as real in the desert as he is on the Mountain top!!!

The God on the Mountain – IS STILL God in the Valley

AND BY THE WAY

Our Vision on the Mountains should be our Comfort in the

Valley

Did you know – When your on top of a mountain you can see where the Valley Ends

So When Your on the Mountain - Take out your Spiritual Video Recorder So you can remember that the Valley Will End

Get all you can on the Mountain and It will help you when you hit the Valley

Come to Church and load Your Wagon Cause the Ways gonna get Rough

Find Out What a Big God he is on the Mountain Top

And Remember it when you Get in the Valley

That’s Why I Like Recording Services

Cause The Devil can get you Down So Bad Sometimes and you

can go Plug in a Tape of a Holy Ghost Service

AND SAY IT MAY BE BAD NOW BUT I REMEMBER WHEN IT WASN’T THIS WAY I KNOW THAT GOD”S STILL GOD
