“I have set the Lord always before me: Because He is at my right hand, and I shall not be moved.” Psalm 16:8
HOPE FOR TODAY!
So how now should we feel after we realize that God is with us, will protect us, and will prevent us from being moved? In case you might be confused David goes on to share his feelings about this with us, as we read,
“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.” Psalm 16:9
When we understand these things we can feel secure, we can set our mind on things that matter, such as spending time with God in prayer, and we can stop worrying if everthing will be alright! Worry is gone and fear has taken flight! The key to happiness and success is right here,
“I have set God always before me!” This means that God is first in all things, He leads our decisions, and instructs us in His way that we are to go! He goes before us and opens doors for us to enter as we follow Him. We only have to put our hand in His and set our life in Him and He will direct us as we follow Him. God will insure that we are never moved! These troubles in our life are simply temporary distractions put in our life so that we might lose our focus on Him. We may feel some pressure from them or from this world, but these will never shake us or move us away from His love. He keeps us through it all! Jesus never fails us! When we accept this and see it at work in our life then we are glad and rejoice, and we appreciate that our God is ever with us and surrounding us with His love!
JUST LIKE A TREEE PLANTED BY THE WATERS, I SHALL NOT BE MOVED!
