Wesley's Notes for Psalms 16:11


16:11 Life - Thou wilt raise me from the grave, and conduct me to the place and state of everlasting felicity. Presence - In that heavenly paradise, where thou art gloriously present, where thou dost clearly and fully discover the light of thy countenance; whereas in this life thou hidest thy face and shewest us only thy back - parts. Right - hand - Which he mentions as a place of the greatest honour, the place where the saints are placed at the last day, and where Christ himself is said to sit, #Psal 110:1|. Pleasures - All our joys are empty and defective: But in heaven there is fulness of joy. Our pleasures here are transient and momentary; but those at God's right hand are pleasures for evermore. For they are the pleasures of immortal souls, in the enjoyment of an eternal God.

    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.
