Observation

What good things do we have apart from the Lord (16:2)? What is most important to David (17:15)?

Application

Do I regularly thank God and give Him glory for providing me with all good things? Is fellowship with Him my top priority?

Prayer

Dear Lord, Thank You for being a God who loves and who provides every good and perfect gift. Help me always to remember that all good things come from You. Because I am Yours, my heart is glad, and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely. For You will not abandon me to the grave or leave me to decay into nothingness. You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures. Let my vindication come from You, for You see what is right. My steps are on Your paths; my feet have not slipped. I call on You, God, because You will answer me. Display the wonders of Your faithful love, Savior of all who seek refuge from those who rebel against Your right hand. Guard me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings. I will see Your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be satisfied with Your presence. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
