February 02, 2019: SOAP #3348:   Exodus 33-34; Psalm 16; Acts 9

Scripture:  Psalm (NIV) 16:2 I said to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”
5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely, I have a delightful inheritance.

Observation:   In verse two, the Psalmist chooses the Lord.   In verse 5, he finds that the Lord has chosen him!   Chosen him to bless him.   Chosen him to give him security.   Chosen him to make his way pleasant.   Chosen him to receive a delightful inheritance!

Application: It is good for us to choose the LORD as our Lord!   But it is amazing that the LORD would choose us to be the object of His love, His grace, His kindness, His future!

Prayer:     Heavenly Father, when I chose you, I discovered that you had already chosen me.   I want you to be blessed in my choice for I am certainly blessed in your choice! Amen
