“Be to me what You are, Father!”

I read this quote this morning from the book, “The Satisfied Heart”, by Ruth Meyers:
 
 
“To really know God means that we see what He wants to be in relationship to us and then, more and more in the experiences of daily life, let Him be that to us–count on Him to be that.
 
I have found Psalm 31 to be very helpful in this.  In verse 2 David prays, “Be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me”.  Then in verse 3 he says, “Since you are my rock and my fortress….”  At first I thought this sounded like double-talk: Be to me a rock because You are my rock.  Then I realized that David is saying, ‘I have chosen You to be my rock: now be that for me in my situation right now.  Be to me now what You are.  Isn’t that great?
 
Be to me what You are, You are my best love–be that to me now, for I need that today.  You are the water of life–be that to me at this time, because my soul is thirsty.”

My prayer:
 
Yes, Father–be to me what You are…
 
My Abba-Father–my Daddy who couldn’t love me more than You already do.  I love, love, LOVE being Your daughter!
My refuge, my fortress, my deliverer, my strength, my all in all
My Great Physician, my healer, my protector, the lover of my soul
My Living water, my bread of Life
My salvation, my forgiver, my intercessor, my cleanser of all unrighteousness
My life
My fount of every blessing, bind my wandering heart to Thee…
My source, my hope, my peace, my joy, my Savior
My inheritance, my provider
My giver of every good thing
My strong tower of safety
My contentment and satisfaction
My giver of all wisdom
My quencher of every thirst I’ll ever have
My counselor and friend
My sun and shield
My redeemer
My king
My creator
My good shepherd
My Bridegroom
My ever-present help in time of trouble
My beloved
 
My everything!
