Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.

I have set the Lord always before me.  Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalms 16:8

Reality must be faced:  we will face challenges in our life and these hard times have potential to shake us to the core.  But our Psalmist confidently states that he will not be shaken because he has taken steps to prevent this from happening.  It inspires us to think about what the phrase might mean when he says he has set the Lord always before me. There is an action involved that can place us in a position to not be shaken regardless of the challenges we meet.
*In my heart, how can I set the Lord always before me?
*In my home, how can I set the Lord always before me?
*As I drive down the road, how can I set the Lord always before me?
*At my desk, how can I set the Lord always before me?
*At weekend get-togethers, how can I set the Lord always before me?
*At ________________, how can I set the Lord always before me?

Psalm 23:1-4
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Joshua 1:5: … I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Can we trust God to follow through with His promises?  His character tells us that we can.  He is faithful.  He is strong.  He loves us.  He is a good Shepherd.  He is our Father.  Meditate on the character of God for a few minutes and enjoy the sense of security you can find only in Him.
