Praying the Psalms- Psalm 16

Jenny has begun a journey of praying her way through the Psalms that I have decided to join. Each weekend, we will pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey and join us in Praying the Psalms.

Psalm 16 

I have set the LORD always before me.  Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.  Psalm 16:8
Sometimes, He speaks so clearly to me that I am sure He wrote the words only for me!   During my retreat this week, God gave me a strong desire to commune with Him as closely in my daily life as I did those few days, when all the cares of the world were on hold.  He reminded me of the all consuming grip I allowed Him over my heart and mind when I first came to Him.  He told me that if I seek Him in every moment, if I abide in Him, I will bear much fruit.  Those sins that  seem to still ensnare me will lose their power if I allow His Spirit to work in me.   Then, today, I read this psalm and the words of verse 8 seem written just for me- to remind and confirm.  I receive them as part of His personal love letter to me.  Lord, help me to set You before me!

Great reflection. Amazing when confirmation of God's message to us comes out of the blue like that! God bless!
