David had a confidence in the Lord that He would do what He had said, indeed, this confidence is the backbone of any long-term relationship
The words of the psalmist come to mind: The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. Now we are told that this is a psalm of David, who was the 8th son of his father Jesse. Normally, a father’s inheritance was shared between the sons, with the first born taking the prime. So he may have had a small inheritance from Jesse, but David developed a wonderful relationship with the Lord, the God of Israel. This relationship was already strong when he was a young shepherd. He testified: "The LORD who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you.”
David working with the Lord, inherited the promises and was able to pass on an inheritance, However, his chief delight was not the land or the wealth or security of the people but the Lord. I want to end this brief blog with Psalm 16:
for in you I take refuge.
I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing.”
I say of the holy people who are in the land,
“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
or take up their names on my lips.
Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful b one see decay.
You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
