I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:7-8 (NIV)
You are not on your own. I am with you to help you. I will counsel you. I will instruct you. I will teach you. I will watch over you. I will guide you through life. Do not be afraid. Don’t let yourself be shaken. You will not stumble. You will not fall. I will hold you up. I will keep you going. I will restore you. I will refresh you. I will strengthen you. You can rely on me. Do you believe what I am saying to you? Will you place all your trust in me? Will you rely on me rather than in anything or on anyone else? Lord, I do believe what you are saying to me. I will place my complete trust in you. I will not rely in anything or on anyone other than you. You are my fortress. You are my deliverer. You are my refuge and strength. I will hold on to you as I know that you are holding on to me. That will be very good.
I have all provided for you. I have already given all that you will need, so you will not be shaken. What have you given to me? I am not asking out of ignorance. I’m not asking out of unbelief. I’m asking this question out of faith. I want to hear again how you have provided for me, so that I will not be shaken. That’s very good. I am delighted to answer your question. I have given you myself. You can live in an intimate relationship with me. You can hear my voice. You can receive my counsel. I have given you my Spirit. You can receive my refreshment. You can receive my guidance. I will lead you to where I want you to go and give you what I want you to do. I will make you able to know and do my will. You will accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans for your life. I have set boundaries for your life that will keep and guard you. You will not go where you should not go. You will not do what you should not do. I have given you my body. I have placed you among my followers. You can give and receive encouragement from each other as you love, follow and serve me. I have given you the ability to worship me. My praise will be on your lips as you walk with me through life. Thank you Lord for all that you have given to me. Thank you Lord for always being with me to keep me from never being shaken.
Lord, you are my only source of security in this uncertain and unpredictable life. I will take refuge in you. I will rely on you. I know that you are always with me. I know I never need be shaken. Thank you for being with me to counsel and guide me through life. Amen
