Better Than the Life of the Desert

Hello, God has given me something in Psalm 63:3, which says,

“Because your love is better than life, 
    my lips will glorify you.”

David is in the desert at this point in the Psalms. He is saying that he earnestly thirsts for God. He said that his whole being longed for God in a dry and parched land where there was no water. He said that he had seen God in his sanctuary, and he had beheld God’s power and His glory. He said that God’s love was better than life. God’s love was much better than the desert David was in, and so David said that his lips would glorify God.

We have a reason to glorify God too. What is that reason? It is because Jesus saved us. We were thirsting so much in a desert of our sins, then Jesus came and He died on the cross for us, and His love brought us out of our desert. His love is so much better than life. He loved us so much, that He died for us in our place. He went out to the desert and gave us the water of His love. He loved us so much!

Out in that desert there are lot’s illusions in the desert. Illusions of wells, and water. Some who are not believing in Jesus go to those illusions. They are really traps set by Satan. If you are an unbeliever, why not come to the true well? Why not come to the way out of the desert (John 14:6). God’s love is better than life, and He can get you out of the desert. His love will cleanse you from sin if you just come to Him. Come to the savior!

Praise God! Believers should praise God. Why? Because Jesus gave us love that is better than life, and He died on the cross for us. He brought us out of the desert. He rescued us from our desert of sin! Let’s praise Him! Let’s thank God! Praise God, He has rescued us from the desert, and showed us love that’s better than life! Thank You, Jesus! David said that his lips would glorify God, so let’s have our lips do the same thing! Praise God!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for showing me love that’s better than life. Thank You for rescuing me from the desert. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to be more thankful. Please help me to trust You even more. Please help me to always go to You instead of the illusions of this life. Please help me to praise You more.  Thank You for blessing me so much. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
