Psalm 16 is a beautiful text and an important one; Paul in his sermon at the synagogue in Antioch cites it as an indication that David, by the Spirit, was anticipating Jesus’ resurrection.

The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;

You support my lot.

The measuring lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;

Indeed, my inheritance is beautiful to me.

Psalm 16:5-6

David looks to something else that matters to us in this passage. He considers the borders of his kingdom, and counts God as a greater blessing. “You are my Lord, I have nothing good besides You.”

What is the value of God in our lives? Is he sufficient for us? Can we be satisfied with only Him?
