Psalm 16 ~ My Inheritance


A personal confession adapted from the Psalms.

My Inheritance ~ from Psalm 16

I put my trust in Yahweh,
I find my refuge in Him.
He preserves me and protects me.
Everything good in my life comes from Him
And I take delight in all His people.

Yahweh is my portion and my inheritance.
He is my cup of blessing.
He sustains me and holds my future.
The boundary lines of my life have fallen in pleasant places.
Yes, I have a good inheritance.

I will bless Yahweh,
Because He guides me.
I think about Him in the quiet of the night
And He instructs me deep in my heart.

I keep my focus on Him, always,
And I will not be fearful of any danger.
So I am lighthearted,
Everything in me whirls and twirls with joy.

For He will not abandon me.
He will show me the path of life.
In His presence is abundant joy
And at His right hand, where I am seated with Jesus,*
Are pleasures that last forever.

* “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:4-8)
