In Psalm 16, David writes that God will never abandon our souls.
He says, "Preserve me, O God, for in You I take refuge!" David said that he had nothing good besides God. As for the saints, David said that they are excellent. He delighted in the saints that were in the land.
Those that served other gods would have increasing sorrow. David refused to take their offerings of blood, pour it upon their altars, or even speak their names. The One True God was his chosen God, and He had given David a wonderful inheritance with Him.
David blessed the Lord who gave his instruction. He said that he always set the Lord before himself because the Lord walked beside him at his right hand. He would not be shaken.
Because of the Lord, he had a merry heart and his whole being rejoiced. He felt safe and secure. God would never abandon his soul or let His holy one see corruption.
God let David know the path to life. In God's presence there is the fullness of joy. At His right hand are pleasures forevermore.
As Christians, we should ask ourselves: Do we walk with God? Do we take refuge in Him? Do we refuse all others, whether it's men, work, entertainment, or more that are our idols of today? Can we truly say that we have nothing good but God, and that we take our delight in Him?
