In Psalm 63, David speaks of his desire for God in terms of hunger and thirst. His longing for God creates the same feeling within him as if he were lost in the desert. He is fully satisfied, however, when he beholds God in the sanctuary. The worship of God becomes a four-course meal of the finest food, and David is full of praise after the feast. David’s enemies, on the other hand, who don’t like the food that worship provides don’t just end up hungry: they become food for jackals, and their mouths are silenced forever. So as you come to the sanctuary today, come hungry for worship, and let God’s rich food fuel your praise.
