-Psalm 16

by Request ~ February 11th, 2016

A Miktam[1] of David.

16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.”

3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight.[2]

4 The sorrows of those who run after[3] another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips.

5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.[4]
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being[5] rejoices;
my flesh also dwells secure.
10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
or let your holy one see corruption.[6]

11 You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  (ESV)

Our Father,

Thanks for the blessings you continue to give us through your presence and counsel.We cannot imagine how hopeless and without purpose our life would be without you and your Son Jesus.

The path we travel on in life is filled with pits and problems like everyone else but we have you and your Holy Spirit as our refuge in our times of difficulty. You give us hope and joy in the midst of despair and a vision of your infinite Kingdom when we face the limitations before us in this life.

Praise you name Lord, we are thankful for the eternal vision of the future you have given us which is beyond anything that this world has to offer. In the mean time you bless our lives everyday and bring us joy regardless of what we are facing.

In health and weakness, wealth or need, we praise you and we are thankful for you presence. Without you our life would have no purpose or hope.

In Jesus name, Amen.
