"I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." — Psalm 16:8 (NIV)
We all learned early on the importance of the buddy system. Having someone for us to keep track of and to keep track of us kept us safe and made us feel secure during trips. The psalmist describes a similar system only it's the LORD who is keeping the psalmist safe and secure. By giving the LORD top priority in his life, the psalmist knows God will be beside him all of his days. Thus, he has nothing to fear in all the world.
Prayer: God of all goodness, You stand before us and beside us guarding us from all evil and temptations. May we know only security and peace in Your presence. Amen.
