Discussion for Psalms 16

  • Patrick Cagle
    Read the entire chapter and look for the central theme. Check the context . It seems to me the writer had a very close relationship with God. " set the Lord ALWAYS before me" before meaning "ahead". If a guide was leading you he would be ahead, or in Front of you. You couldn't go the right direction if the guide was behind you. But, it also says he is at his right hand as well. Im not getting into the meaning of the "Right Hand"", but " Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. " I've read elswhere where it says not to move to the left or right. And "he" is not capitalized. Hmm.

    If we always keep Jehovah God before us then we will have success. We will take His feelings into consideration before we make decisions and we will look to Him for guidance.

    God will lead me in the path of righteousness. By his spirit I have unspeakable joy. Jesus sits on the right hand of God and because he is in me and I in him, I can ask and it shall be done. God will give me the desires of my heart.
