Knowing and Trusting

The request of David in Psalm 16 is for safety and he is confident that his request will be fulfilled because of the trust he has gained in God. Over his lifetime, David has experienced God’s counsel, protection, and path to life. Even in death, David knows that God will not abandon him.

We should have this same attitude as we journey through life. Like the trust in God that David demonstrates in today’s Psalm, we should be assured that God is with us always. We can have confidence right now, tomorrow, and for eternity because of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This day with You Lord, we know and trust You just as David in today’s passage. You give Your believers a great benefit because instructions to the path of life are given in Your Word. Growing out from this knowledge is confidence, poise, and joy. We know You are in control today and that the pathway You have set before us leads to an amazing future. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.


About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
