I have written often of Psalm 63. It is one of my favorites in the Bible. It is one written by King David when he was in the wilderness being pursued by Saul. Personal wildernesses come from time to time for all of us and when mine do I return to this psalm. I read it and meditate on it in the watches of the night. I look at the passage metaphorically because I think that is how it was written. The Bible is full of metaphors for life and this is one more that reminds me that God is in charge.
But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by the Lord shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be shut!
