Read Psalm 16

Thank you for your patience.  Been adapting to the new abnormal :)

Monday

Read Psalm 16

16:1 Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.

16:2 I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you."

16:3 As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.

16:4 Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.

16:5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.

16:6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.

16:7 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.

16:8 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.

16:10 For you do not give me up to Sheol, or let your faithful one see the Pit.

16:11 You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Think

The Psalmist is aware of his decision to choose to worship the LORD.  When LORD is used in the scriptures it indicates the spelling of Yahweh - a proper name for God.  Who or what is your 'LORD' and how have the current circumstances helped you to know more fully what you have chosen?

Pray

16:8 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved
16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.
