King David lived in a pluralistic society (as do we). All around him were gods of every description. People gave great time, energy, and riches to seek those gods, but the return was merely emptiness.
But since his childhood David had known and sought the one, true God. He had banked his hopes on the reality of Jehovah and had never been disappointed.
""I said to the Lord, 'You are my Lord; I have no good besides You.' ...the 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."" (Psalm 16:2,4)
But notice what he received because of this choice to give himself wholly to the one, true God. God provided...
There was (and is) a condition for these blessings. David made the conscious choice to make God his LORD, i.e., his MASTER. He had deliberately forsaken every other god and idol in his life in deep pursuit of God alone.
The more we bend to his gracious Lordship the more we know of the rightness of this choice and His abundant blessings. This should not be the sole motivation for our surrender, but it is certainly the reward.

Pay attention to holiness. Be intentional about all He has already said to you. Set aside deliberate time to fast, pray, and read and meditate on His Word. Be extremely careful about your obedience.
And then, cry out to Him for greater intimacy. For as clear as His conditions are for you to see Him, they are clearly promised! He desires to reveal Himself to you more than you are aware for He is a God of perfect love towards you.
