Don 't worry 'bout how it all comes together!! Trust God because He is the begining and the end. He has the blue print of our lives and everything will altimately workout for our good to the glory of His name. To me this psalm is like an awakening, a realization because it seems the psalmist from the unset forgot he is of a godly heritage until the lines fell in pleasant places

I think this psalm means everything about my life is planned by God and its following a predetermined path and everything is going to work for my own good.


AREKUMO THANKGOD's comment on 2013-12-19 09:42:27:

What I got from this scripture is that GOD'S thought for me is GOOD and not evil. Always providing for me from the begining of creation. The garden of Eden was a Pleasurable place so we in JESUS we hav tapped of that pleasure.

God is so faithful that He keeps to His promise always. This verse{Psalm 16:6)is one of the most wonderful verses for God's children. Indeed, My God had placed me in a pleasant place that even when the enemy planned with some workers against me, my good God brought me out, promoted me and placed in a goodly inheritance. Praise God.

Aye Esther's comment on 2013-02-06 09:37:26:

Anywhere in life the forces of darkness draw their boundaries thinking I'll be greatly affected negatively, “JEHOVAH jump protocol” will make it the most suitable spot to embrace me with such blessings that my inheritance will be great.
