Verse of the Day – Psalms 16:11

“You show me the path of life. In Your presence there is fullness of joy; in Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalms 16:11 (NRSV)

Prodigal Thoughts: David has written a poem (a miktam) to God and he is sharing it with us. He is openly communicating to God that He is David’s source for all things including protection, guidance, and wise counsel among other things. Knowing that David spent plenty of time ducking in and hiding in caves to keep away from King Saul, who was trying to kill him, David still joyfully devotes his life to God. Then we get to the part of the verse that is saying, “in Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” What is the meaning of Your right hand? It is a place of honor. Keep in mind that Christ is seated at the right hand of God the Father, Almighty. The right hand represents authority and power, but can also mean protection, provision, and mighty works. David had a hold of some amazing insight. 

Prayer for today: I pray that we would have the hearts that are seeking God’s heart and that our days are filled with thanksgiving and praise to our Father, even in the darkest moments. He is still protecting us. Father God doesn’t stop seeking after us. Oh, that we would seek Him as intensely as we once loved sin.

If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.

May God’s goodness shine on you…
