The Provision of God's Word

This was such a blessing to me today, I thought I would share it with y'all!  I pray your day is filled with joy, peace and productivity today!
Lord, I pray that You write Your Word upon the tablet of my heart today.  Thank you for a beautiful, goodly heritage!-Amen

According to Christian  Mikhtam is a writing; i.e., a poem or song.  This word is found in the titles of Psalm 16; 56-60
Some translate the word “golden”, i.e., precious. It is rendered in the LXX. by a word meaning “tablet inscription” or a “stelograph.” The root of the word means to stamp or grave, and hence it is regarded as denoting a composition so precious as to be worthy to be engraven on a durable tablet for preservation; or, as others render, “a psalm precious as stamped gold,” from the word kethem, “fine or stamped gold.”

Psalm 16

The LORD the Psalmist's Portion in Life and Deliverer in Death.
A Mikhtam of David.
    1Preserve me, O God, for I take refuge in You.
    2I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;
         I have no good besides You."
    3As for the saints who are in the earth,
         They are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight.
    4The sorrows of those who have bartered for another god will be multiplied;
         I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
         Nor will I take their names upon my lips.
    5The LORD is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
         You support my lot.
    6The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
         Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.
    7I will bless the LORD who has counseled me;
         Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night.
    8I have set the LORD continually before me;
         Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
    9Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices;
         My flesh also will dwell securely.
    10For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol;
         Nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay.
    11You will make known to me the path of life;
         In Your presence is fullness of joy;
         In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
