Psalm 16 The Message

A David Song

1-2 Keep me safe, O God, I've run for dear life to you.
I say to God, "Be my Lord!"
Without you, nothing makes sense.

3 And these God-chosen lives all around—
what splendid friends they make!

4 Don't just go shopping for a god.
Gods are not for sale.
I swear I'll never treat god-names
like brand-names.

5-6 My choice is you, God, first and only.
And now I find I'm your choice!
You set me up with a house and yard.
And then you made me your heir!

7-8 The wise counsel God gives when I'm awake
is confirmed by my sleeping heart.
Day and night I'll stick with God;
I've got a good thing going and I'm not letting go.

9-10 I'm happy from the inside out,
and from the outside in, I'm firmly formed.
You canceled my ticket to hell—
that's not my destination!

11 Now you've got my feet on the life path,
all radiant from the shining of your face.
Ever since you took my hand,
I'm on the right way.

Food for Thought: The following chorus of, God Makes All Things Beautiful.... came to mind!

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Yes, God makes everything beautiful...Our lives are transformed from the inside out when we surrender all to Him...When we commit our lives to God and accept His Beloved Son in to our hearts and lives, receiving His forgiveness we are transformed in Mind Body and Spirit.

Indeed God makes all things beautiful in our lives when we make Him Lord of our Lives.

Is Jesus Lord of your life?

    I just love the Psalms that David wrote. He was such a gifted man and blessed by God. It is just too bad that Israel continued down the path of unrighteousness. Imagine what it would be like today if they had done what they were supposed to do.

    Yes Jesus is Lord and Saviour of my life. My life is so much better since I made that choice. Love Jesus. He is very important to me.
