I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
Psalms 16:8 (NLT)
The secret in this verse is David’s awareness. God being near to us is not novel. He is omnipresent. David writes later in the Psalms that there is nowhere that we can go to get away from His presence. No, the novelty here is David’s heartfelt awareness. He knew both in his mind and in his heart that God was with him. God was as close to him as his own breath. And with that presence was a keen awareness of God’s unconditional love. It was David’s driving force. Jehovah was the God of love. He was the God who was there. And He is the same for you. Today, do not be shaken. Instead rejoice in the fact that God is with you. He is right next to you.
Dear Father, how I rejoice that You are with me. You have promised to never leave me or forsake me. I rejoice in Your closeness and humbly thank You for Your presence.Because of Jesus.
