Psalm 16 May 5, 2020

Psalm 16 Portion

Psalm is a declaration of trust and reliance on God. The part that caught my attention begins in verse 5: "The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot." Psalmist follows with other images that are similar to chosen portion: boundary lines in pleasant places; goodly heritage.

Psalm ends with naming the benefits of choosing the Lord as our portion God gives counsel; the Lord is at our right hand; God shows me the path of life.

Join with the psalmist in affirming, O Lord, that you are my portion. I want to follow you, O God: to enjoy the pleasant boundary lines and goodly heritage you give. Give me counsel and speak to my heart. Let me perceive that you are before me, so that I may follow where you lead, make my heart glad, O Lord, and give my soul joy for being in relationship with you. Be my portion.

Show me, gracious God, how to be joyful with you as my portion so that any joy that comes from you may be attractive to others and point them to you. Use my words, attitude, and actions for your purpose, O Lord.

Amen
