"For Thou hast heard my vows, O God; Thou hast given me the inheritance of those who fear Thy name." Psalm 61:5 NASB
David knows that God has heard his prayer. God hears those who call out to Him in faith. God takes notice of the promise, the commitment, made in a vow. David also knows that God has already given him a place in heaven, his inheritance, because of his reverence, respect, honor, and awe of God. David’s faith and trust in God assured him of the inheritance of heaven.
Lord Jesus, I am thankful for the place You are preparing for me, and for all who believe in You, in heaven. I am also thankful that You hear and answer the prayers of Your people.
