The Lord himself is my inheritance, my prize. He is my food and drink, my highest joy! He guards all that is mine. He sees that I am given pleasant brooks and meadows as my share! What a wonderful inheritance! I will bless the Lord who counsels me; he gives me wisdom in the night. He tells me what to do. I am always thinking of the Lord; and because he is so near, I never need to stumble or to fall.
Psalms: 16: 5-8 (The Living Bible)
Of all the things that we can wish for and hope for, I believe that having the Lord as my inheritance, is the greatest thing that could happen in my life. My heart, body, and soul are filled with joy. The Lord is allowing me to experience the joys of life and the pleasures of having God’s presence with me wherever I go. Of all the treasures in the world, and all the riches that we all seek, I want Gods best and especially his inheritance.
My contentment is not in wealth, but in seeing you God, and knowing that all is well between us. And one day when I awake in heaven, I will be fully satisfied, for I will see you face to face. You will give me a long, good life, filled with wisdom and joy. And I can testify that when I obey you Lord, every path I go down, is fragrant with your loving-kindness and truth. Joy rises in my heart, until I burst out in songs to my Lord and Saviour. My inheritance is in trusting God with every area of my life. Shalom!
