Psalm 16:8 I always remember that the Lord is with me. He is here, close by my side, so nothing can defeat me.

I think that somehow, we all think, we all imagine, we all hope that at some point, life will get better. At some point, it’s going to get easier. Only, it never seems to, does it?

I was speaking to a bunch of people just the other day and I asked for a show of hands for anybody who didn’t have a single problem in their life at that very moment.

No health issues, no financial issues, no relationship issues, no stresses or strains – would anybody whose life is just absolutely perfect at the moment, please put their hand in the air.

Would you like to know how many hands went up? None. Zero. Nada.

And that’s pretty much it, isn’t it? Somewhere in the back of our minds, we have this idea that life at some point at least, should be perfect; that the ideal state is to be on “easy street” as they say. A nice smooth highway, when the reality is, it’s almost always a rocky, bumpy road.

So in that reality, what is it that gets you through? What is it that lets you lay hold of peace and joy despite your circumstances? I’m not asking that as a general question of theory, I’m asking you, what is it in your life?

Psalm 16:8 I always remember that the Lord is with me. He is here, close by my side, so nothing can defeat me.

What a powerful realisation by King David of Israel who wrote that psalm. A man whose life had been threatened on so many occasions.

The truth is that for anyone who believes in Jesus – here it is– the Lord your God is always with you, close by your side. Nothing can defeat you. That’s what gets you through.

And that’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
