Wesley's Notes for Psalms 16:10


16:10 Hell - In the state of the dead. Holy one - Me thy holy son, whom thou hast sanctified and sent into the world. It is peculiar to Christ, to be called the holy one of God. To see - To be corrupted or putrefied in the grave, as the bodies of others are.

    Your victory and success in life is the function of what you can see or what you are looking at. Keeping your eyes always on the Lord and fixing your eyes on Jesus christ means that you have changed your focus from seeing your life problems, challenges, troubles and hopeless situations. Keep your eyes on Jesus christ as your solution, your helper,savior , the author and the finisher of your faith. Let your focus be permanently on Him. He's on your right hand to fight for you.

    I love vs. 11. It is my life verse. It helps remind me that God will direct me, and that He loves me. Also that He rewards those who follow after him.
