PSALM 16:7-11

7 I will bless the Lord who guides me;
even at night, my heart instructs me.
8 I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
9 No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.[a] My body rests in safety.
10 For you will not leave my soul among the dead[b] or allow your holy one[c] to rot in the grave.
11 You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.[d]


The Lord will never leave us nor forsake us. Through sorrow and happiness, when we are at our weakest and strongest, even during the hardest of times, He is right there beside us. Let your heart be filled with joy because of the steadfast love of Jesus.


Q: Where is the only place we can find the fullness of joy?

Q: What needs to be moved aside today to set the Lord before you?

Q: How can the hope of the Resurrection and Jesus’ return strengthen your family, friends, and others?
