I will bless the LORD, who has given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Psalms 16:7-8 Herein is a double reference, written by David, but reflecting the prayer of the Messiah and His first coming. He became like us to set us free; may His prayer be unto us to keep us free. The phrase, He has given me counsel , should birth in us the understanding of a fellowship with the Lord our God. For a counsel that is given, is a counsel that was received. To receive, we must be in His presence, by letting go of our many human feelings and the nature that so easily control us. This we do by faith, considering He already knows that which we are feeling, shall we then not trust in Him? Certainly. Next we read; my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. The word “reins” have to do with the most secret feelings, purposes, and methods of the soul to reason, and for human, the choice of reason is usually fear and uncertainty. So then, as we read the phrase; my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. That is to say, when we are in His presence, His counsel teaches us, and guides us, and in the night our conscience warns us, to trust in Him, when we learn to be in His presence. If the day is busy to keep us from the receiving of His counsel, let the ease of the night bring us into His peace. In the words of Henry, at night silence and retirement will befriend our communion with God. His kindest visits are often in the night. Whether it is the night hour, or symbolically the darkest time, let us earnestly seek His counsel. Then we shall say: I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices: my flesh also shall rest in hope. Psalms 16:8-9 For no one who hopes in the Lord will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous (dangerous) without cause. Insight to the Psalms The Psalm expresses a confident expectation in the Lord for life and happiness, and the eternal life to come. Based on the evidence that true attachment to God will expresses the deep conviction of assurance in those who loves the Lord, knowing He first loved us, and He will never leave us.
Feliz año nuevo a todos! Un año se fue con muchos obstaculos y pruebas, algunos claudicamos en diferentes areas de nuestro caminar con Cristo, some regresaron a la vida vieja otros renunciaron a seguir peleando la buena batalla, pero a los que todavia estamos en pie con las rodillas dobladas ante Dios , pero la cabeza levantada y el escudo de la fe en nuestras manos ante el mundo, el enemigo y el pecado, no desmallemos, no nos rindamos, sabiendo que esta leve tribulación momentánea produce en nosotros un cada vez má excelente peso de gloria 2 Corintios 4:17 Mientras mas padecemos y nos humillamos mas vemos y veremos su gloria, en su guia ayuda y consuelo a cada instante de nuestra vida. Hermamos este nuevo año busquemos su presencia más y más que nuestras almas rebosen de su presencia para que la frialdad de este mundo no nos arrope, no apague el fuego del don de Dios en nosotros sus hijos. Estamos en lo tiempos profeticos donde el amor de muchos se enfriará .Mateo 24:12 Pero solo el Fuego del Espíritu Santo nos mantendrá esa llama encendida en lo profundo de nuestros corazones. Dios te bendiga y espero esto te bendiga.
Happy New Year to all ! One year left with many obstacles and trials, some gave up in different areas of our walk with Christ, some returned to the old life, others gave up on continuing to fight the good fight, but those of us who still stand with our knees bent before God. , but with the raised head and the shield of faith in our hands before the world, the enemy and sin, let us not lose heart, we do not surrender, knowing that this slight momentary tribulation produces in us an increasingly excellent weight of glory 2 Corinthians 4:17 The more we suffer and humble ourselves the more we see and see his glory, in his guidance help and comfort at every moment of our life. Let us brothers this new year seek his presence more and more that our souls overflow with his presence so that the coldness of this world does not cover us, does not extinguish the fire of God's gift in us, his children. We are in prophetic times where the love of many will grow cold. Matthew 24:12 But only the Fire of the Holy Spirit will keep that flame burning deep in our hearts please continuing believing . JESUS IS COMING !! God bless you. 🙏🏻
