Psalm 16: 5-11 (AMP)
“The Lord is the portion of my inheritance, my cup [He is all I need]; You support my lot. 6 The [boundary] lines [of the land] have fallen for me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. 7 I will bless the Lord who has counseled me; Indeed, my heart (mind) instructs me in the night. 8 I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory [my innermost self] rejoices; My body too will dwell [confidently] in safety, 10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead), Nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay. 11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”
Reflection: I woke up this morning thinking about how wonderful God is. I had to praise Him. I desired to praise Him.
Praise God that my heart desires to be in His presence. He has created my heart to be this way. In His presence there is LOVE, JOY, PEACE and REST. If you have not yet already today, I invite you to stop whatever you’re about to do (safely) and intentionally be in God’s presence. Commune with Him through your thanksgiving, praise and prayer.
Blessings & Peace,
