I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. Psalms 16:8-9 New King James Version
Therefore: in consequence of that; as a result; www.dictionary.com
To set the Lord before me indicated that we are following the Lords path in our life. The right hand is the one of honesty and strength.
Therefore these verses indicates that we trust and obey the Lords leading and we are not moved by others opinions or motives.
I do not conform to what others think I ought to do but rather to what I know Jehovah has made me to do. Joseph- Anthony: Green
As a consequence of this our hearts are filled with gladness and we know that our glory comes from Christ so we rejoice in His divine leading and strength in our lives.
Our hope is not like hoping to win a lottery (good luck) but rather in the assurance of a rock solid guarantee.
The guarantee of course is confidence that we have a calling, we are walking in that calling, and the Lord provides for us in that calling.
As a result of this we have a guarantee of a permanent Heavenly reward which brings joy to our spirit.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi (Jesus our great Sheppard) for blessing me with a divine calling and the Heavenly joy that comes with walking this path with You. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
