“I said to the Lord, ‘You are my Master! Every good thing I have comes from you.’ … ‘Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.’” Psalm 16:2-5 (NLT)
Lord Jesus, in total agreement with King David, we celebrate you as our perfect Savior, loving Master, and incomparable Inheritance. Every good thing we have comes from you. No other “master” has ever died to make his subjects his beloved bride.
You are the fountain of pleasures and the river of everlasting delights—the wellspring of joy and the source of deepest satisfaction. You give cheerfully, not begrudgingly. You love lavishly, not reservedly. You redeem fully, not partially.
Lord Jesus, in your time and way, you will make all things new and everything beautiful. For you aren’t just the Master of souls, but the King of solar systems, societies, and seas.
Of all inheritances our vulnerable hearts might crave, Jesus, you alone are to be treasured and trusted. Compared to you, all other gold is fool’s gold, all other currencies are counterfeit, all other riches are rubbish.
To live is to know you, and death will be gaining more of you. Because of your current reign and certain return, our hope for the future is thriving, and our fears for today are crumbling. We are so glad to be yours, Lord Jesus. Deepen our intimacy with you, and increase our kindness towards others. So very Amen we pray, in your wonderful and merciful name.
