Psalms of My Life! (Psalm 16)

22 Jan

Psalm 16
A miktam[a] of David.Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 6.07.38 AM

1 Keep me safe, my God,
for in you I take refuge.

2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing.”
3 I say of the holy people who are in the land,
“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
or take up their names on my lips.

5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 6.09.45 AM

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful[b] one see decay.
11 You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

    This is such a challenge and a rebuke! Can I honestly say that apart from God I have nothing good? This is my prayer… God help me hang on to nothing else but you!

    Esther: So good to hear from you. Yes, may the Lord encourage us to cling to Him — and all other relationships will be properly viewed! Blessings. Larry
