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.
