Psalm 16.8,9 “I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken for He is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad and I rejoice, my body rests in safety.”
When you know the Lord is with you, knowing with such a deep assurance, it makes you so confident and gives a feeling of deep security so that nothing can shake you whatever challenge or trial you face. Especially for us who are in the new covenant, the Lord isn’t just beside us, He lives inside us! We are His place of residence! That means He will NEVER, EVER, NEVER leave us!
It says “no wonder my heart is glad and I rejoice” – the word “rejoice” is to twirl around with violent emotion. That is exceedingly happy! That is jumping up and down and shouting happy! When you understand what it truly means for the Most Powerful Being in all of creation to ALWAYS be with you, that is the kind of happiness you will experience. He has the power to do ANYTHING FOR YOU! Always in your favor! Good things flowing your way! Peace and contentment! Success with no sorrow attached to it! Good health! Peaceful relationships! Even when you go through a trying time, you KNOW you will come out victorious on the other side! Because you are resting in His love for you.
Think about it. Dream about it. Let that thought fill your heart and mind: “my Daddy God is always with me, always for me, and He loves me!”
And you know what? It’s all going to be okay.
