Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 16:9


16:9 My glory - My tongue, which is a man's glory and privilege, above all other living creatures. Rejoiceth - Declares my inward joy. For this word signifies not so much eternal joy, as the outward demonstrations of it. My flesh - My body shall quietly rest in the grave. Shall rest - in confident assurance of its incorruption there, and of its resurrection to an immortal life: the flesh or body is in itself, but a dead lump of clay; yet hope is here ascribed to it figuratively, as it is to the brute creatures, #Rom 8:19|.

    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.
