Whole being

Psalm 63:8 Amplified says, “My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.”  I was meditating on whole being.  Our soul, which is our mind, will, and emotions, spirit, and body integrated as one in our pursuit of God.

A. W. Tozer used to pray like this: I long to long for You.  I thirst to be thirsty more.  I want to want You.  Can you hear his words of reaching out with his whole being?  David understood this kind of longing.  Psalm 63:1 says, “O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.”
