Psalm 16

A miktam of David

Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.  I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”  I say of the godly who are in the land, “They are the noble people in whom is all my delight.”  Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.  I will not pour out their libations of blood or take up their names on my lips.  LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.  I will praise the LORD who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.  I keep my eyes always on the LORD.  With him at my right hand,  I will not be shaken.  Therefore my heard is glad and my tounge rejoices; my body will also rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay.  You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

How might we take stock of our year?

1. Reflect on “apart from you I have no good thing.”

2. Reflect on “the godly people who are in the land.

3. After doing steps 1 and 2, reflect on your whole life.

4. Go to bed blessing Jesus.

5. Reflect on your happy future.
