May 17, 2024 - Psalms 16-20

It has often occurred to me that people who are continually anxious, and I am thinking particularly about people in the church, are people who seldomly find themselves spending time in the Bible.  They are people who, contrary to their professions, have priorities other than the Lord.  However, hear David:  “I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.  Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.  For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.  You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (16:8-11).  David is glad.  His whole being rejoices.  He is secure.  And why is this?  It is because he has set the Lord always before him.

 

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;

be all else but naught to me, save that Thou art;

be Thou my best thought in the day and the night,

both waking and sleeping, Thy presence my light.   -- Mary E. Byrne (1919)
