PASSAGE IN PSALM 16:8
“I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
REFLECTION QUESTIONS FOR PSALM 16:8
15) Those against the Lord will be judged; those for the Lord will be rewarded and saved. It’s a universal problem of sin that there is evil in the world, that bad things happen, and that there’s not a whole lot we can do about it except turn to God. God is the global solution. Trust in Him for all things, including for the state of the world.
16) This is a tough question because all of them had things that spoke to me. I’m gonna go with Psalm 22. I pray, Lord, that you guide my path and that it be your path. You know my heart’s desire, and I pray you help me make that come true. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

12) Nations and people conspire against God. They say God is too restrictive and that there is no freedom from obeying God. The same. People don’t like what God has to say, so they do their own way — to their own detriment.

Conclusions to Wordgo Study of Wisdom Psalm 19
Great Scripture! I love how we are reminded that God speaks to us through His creation. We often think we have to “hear” an audible sound from God. Instead, all we have to do is look around, and He is there. God’s law is perfect, even when we don’t like what it says. His Word is more precious that gold. We need to cling to that in our darkest moments of life. Contact me today!
