Finding Joy in the Darkness – Psalm 16 Devotional

Psalm 16 was written by David in a time of peril. Yet it is a beautiful song about finding contentment and joy even in hard times.

“Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”

Psalm 16:1-2

Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes we suffer. Sometimes it seems as though we will never merge from the dark fog we’re under. Yet despite those dark times, God is still good, and he gives us so much to find hope and joy in.

This psalm has something of David in it, but much more of Christ. It begins with such expressions of devotion as may be applied to Christ; but concludes with such confidence of a resurrection (and so timely a one as to prevent corruption) as must be applied to Christ

Are you in one of those dark times right now? If so, first seek God and the comfort only he can provide, but also find someone you can confide in that will speak life into you and who will pray with you.

Please know you are loved, my dear sister.
