The Daily Fountain Devotional 22 April 2020
Topic: The All Sufficient God
Scripture: Psalm 16:1-11
Outline: The lines have fallen for us in pleasant places and we have a good heritage (v.6). This is because God is our protection, refuge and shelter(v.1); the power behind our righteousness(v.2). He makes us excellently noble and glorious (v.3). He is our portion, the one who maintains our lot (v.5); our Counselor in dark moments of life(v.7); our good Shepherd who never abandons us even in death (v.10); our teacher who shows us the path of life; our fountain of happiness derived from His presence (v.11).
These and many more are the reasons why the Psalmist decided that God shall be continually set before him. With God, we cannot be moved. We dwell in peace and safety in spite of the troubles around us. Have you experienced this goodly heritage? Do you chase after gods in form of idols or fantasies of life? These end in multiplication of sorrows(v.4). Have you chosen self-righteousness forgetting that no good beside or beyond us is possible without God?
The Daily Fountain Devotional 22 April 2020 – The All Sufficient God
Repent and surrender your life to God,your assigned portion (v.5). Set the Lord continually before you by being always conscious of His presence and allow His word to guide you in your daily decisions. He will make you excellent, nobleand glorious as a godly saint (v.3).
Meditate: “Oh, bless our God, you peoples! And make the voice of His praise to be heard, who keeps your soul among the living, and does not allow our feet to be moved.” (Psalm 66:8)
Lord help me to set you continually before me in all decisions of my life
