David’s Inheritance

17 07 2012

As we look at the value David put on God through Psalm 16 we come to verses 3 – 5 where David contrasts the lives of other saints who have fallen way to serve other gods with his own choice to follow the Lord.


Psa 16:3  But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

Psa 16:4  Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

Psa 16:5  The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.


David remembered and honored his relationship with God in verse five, empowering him to stand firm.


How hard it is when our friends or family members choose to run after other gods. In David’s day, the other god was Baal today the other god’s our friends and family are turning to have other more familiar names, new age or money to name just a few.


David reminded himself the Lord is his inheritance, his cup, and his lot. David was all in, without reservation choosing the Lord. As we face these days of turmoil we must do the same empowering ourselves to stand firm in every situation.
