Thought For Today - July 23 - A Goodly Heritage !
"The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage." Psalm 16: 6
In spite of all the difficulties and problems we may face from day to day, how fortunate we are if we have been the recipient of God's grace and have been saved and born again into God's family. I thank God for my salvation . I thank God for a savior who was willing to leave the splendor of Heaven and come to earth to rescue me. I thank God for Calvary, the old rugged cross, the death, burial and resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I thank God for the person of the Holy Spirit who is my constant companion, my guide and my overseer. I thank God for the written word of God, which administered by the Holy Spirit, is my source of nourishment and renewed strength as I feast upon it.
Yes, because of God's amazing grace , I am a fortunate person. I do have a goodly heritage, the lines are fallen unto me in a pleasant place.
"I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine holy one to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." Psalm 16:7-11
