Bible verse and quote
by Jan Couns
You (God) have made my lot secure. Psalm 16:5b Hitch your life to the only security there is, The living, moving & active God. Anon
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a delightful inheritance. Psalm 16:6
I rest satisfied that I was crafted by my Master to be who I am and to live eternally as He has planned.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. Psalm 16:7
If we have first committed ourselves in prayer to God, and taken a prayerful spirit with us to our bed; in the quiet of its silent hours, undisturbed by the passions, and not harassed by the conflicts of the world, we can commune with our own heart, and be instructed and guarded as to our future course even in the night season. Burton Bouchier
I have set the Lord always before me. Psalm 16:8a God is blazing there in front of us, but unless we set ourselves to it, we shall never see Him. You have to look, by a conscious effort, over and away from the things that are ‘seen and temporal’ if you want to see the things that are ‘unseen and eternal.’ Alexander Maclaren, 1826-1910, British Baptist expository preacher
Because God is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8b When a man walks so near to God that he is peaceful and full of the enjoyment of heavenly delights, he does not come to take any notice of all the threatens except that he is driven to more prayer and to a closer walk with God! Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-92
