And rests in hope secure –Ps 16:9
Dance the dance of victory

Trust in the Lord – your refuge
Seek His face
Set Him always before
Rejoice and rest secure
In His mighty right hand – upheld –

Psalm 16:7-11 NLT

even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
9 No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.
My body rests in safety.
10 For you will not leave my soul among the dead
or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
11 You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.

I Have Set the Lord Always Before

March 21, 2016

I have set the Lord always before

… as the eyes of servants
… look to the hand of their master
… so our eyes look to the LORD our God
… Until He has mercy on us. –Ps 123:2

I trust in His help and protection

… You who fear the LORD
… Trust in the LORD
… He is their help and their shield. –Ps 115:11

Therefore my heart is glad
My glory rejoices

… The righteous are glad in the LORD
… Trust in Him.
… And all the upright in heart glory. –Ps 64:10

My body rests secure
And dwells in safety.

… I will both lie down in peace, and sleep
… For You alone, O LORD,
… Make me dwell in safety. –Ps 4:8

Psalm 16:8-11 AMPC … I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

From Netbible Ps 16:8

I have set the Lord always before
=> I trust in the Lord’s protection

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory [my inner self] rejoices; my body too shall rest and confidently dwell in safety, 10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol (the place of the dead), neither will You suffer Your holy one [Holy One] to see corruption. 11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

From Godvine Clark Ps 16:8

I have set the Lord always before me – This verse, and all to the end of Psalm 16:11, are applied by St. Peter to the death and resurreetion of Christ. Acts 2:25, etc.

In all that our Lord did, said, or suffered, he kept the glory of the Father and the accomplishment of his purpose constantly in view. He tells us that he did not come down from heaven to do his own will, but the will of the Father who had sent him. See John 17:4.

He is at my right hand – That is, I have his constant presence, approbation, and support. All this is spoken by Christ as man.

I shall not be moved – Nothing can swerve me from my purpose; nothing can prevent me from fulfilling the Divine counsel, in reference to the salvation of men.

Upheld Forevermore

11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 63 AMP
1 O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is.
2 So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary to see Your power and Your glory.
3 Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.
4 So will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5 My whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips
6 When I remember You upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches.
7 For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice.
8 My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.
9 But those who seek and demand my life to ruin and destroy it shall [themselves be destroyed and] go into the lower parts of the earth [into the underworld of the dead].
10 They shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a prey for foxes and jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; everyone who swears by Him [that is, who binds himself by God’s authority, acknowledging His supremacy, and devoting himself to His glory and service alone; every such one] shall glory, for the mouths of those who speak lies shall be stopped.

4All the earth will worship You and will sing praises to You;
¬†¬† ¬† ¬†They will sing praises to Your name.” Selah.¬†

Psalm 16:8-11    I have set the LORD always before me;
         Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. 

 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my *glory rejoices;
         My flesh{life} also will rest{secure} in hope.
 10 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
         Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
 11 You will show me the path of life;
         In Your presence is fullness of joy; 
         At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
