Psalm 16:5-6


Psalm 16:5-6 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.


LORD, things change so quickly in this sinful world. It can be rather intimidating to watch the news wondering “What has happened now?” As much as I would like to think that I’ve made some secure plans, nothing is for sure. That’s what makes your name so comforting—“LORD!” This name reminds me that you are the God of “promises always kept.” There is no “good luck” involved. My cup overflows with the one thing needful—Your love, mercy and peace in Jesus my Savior. Strengthen my trust in your plan to fill my life with these treasures. As the world around me continues to change, keep me focused on the delightful inheritance of heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
