“My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.”
– Psalm 63:8
As I cling to God, he faithfully upholds me! What an amazing provision. God upholds my life. Now I do have a part to play for this to functionally be a reality, and it is to be careful and intentional with regard to what I cling to. And the most significant way one clings to things is that which is held onto from deep within. What our soul is attached to has a profound way of defining us. Some become clingy with people, which can be characterized by control or co-dependency. Some become unhealthily attached to material possessions. The bible calls that idolatry. Others may strive for some position or title, letting go of all else. Such are the deceived, lonely and unfulfilled. I want my deepest being to be attached to God alone so that his presence in my life is what defines me…what explains me. May I not be explainable apart from the fact that God’s right hand upholds me!
Please search me O God and try my anxious thoughts. See if there be any unholy attachments in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.
