Psalm 16:1-2 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
Someone said, “talking to yourself is fine, but answering yourself is weird.” If most of us were honest, we’d admit that we talk to ourselves audibly sometimes. But this Psalm is talking about the conversation within the soul. David’s Psalm depicts a man speaking to his own soul.
I used to be too introspective, to my own detriment some times. And this was a result of the “conversations” and thoughts I’d have within. This Psalm is a great example of the types of conversations and meditations we should have. Because the Psalmist and the man in the Psalm meditated on the right things, the Psalm ends with praise and delight in the presence of God.
If I’m going to have the right perspective on life, and the right attitude toward the things of God, I must meditate on the right things. Psalm 1 shows that true success comes when we meditate on the things of God (His Word) day and night. The battle has been and will be for the minds of men. Let’s have the right conversations in our mind and soul.
