Reading along with us in the first 30 chapters of Psalm? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 16 (ESV)

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

  1. What a privilege it is to have God as our refuge and what a refuge He is! “Apart from you I have no good thing”, in verse 2 really jumped out at me. How much do I believe that? How much do I pursue things apart from Him that I may consider good, but by definition they are not because they are apart from Him? Certainly our sorrows will increase as we seek after other gods as verse 4 tells us. But then consider the good things He does provide. We have great spiritual benefits in Christ, but here David causes us to consider the material blessings that can be part of God’s plan for us as well….boundary lines falling into right places….a delightful inheritance….joy in your presence…eternal pleasures at your right hand. What could be better than that?

    Yep, He does have all the good things…so thank you Father for the grace that makes that possible, and show me when I am straying away and seeking after other gods….
