from Experiencing God Day by Day
"I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved." ~Psalm 16:8
What does it mean to set the Lord always before you? It means that you choose to relate everything you encounter to your trust in God. What you choose to focus on becomes the dominant influence in your life. You may be a Christian, but if your focus is always on your problems, your problems will determine the direction of your life. If you focus on people, then people will determine what you think and do. In biblical times, the right hand was the most distinguished position, reserved for one's chief advisor and supporter. When you choose to focus on Christ, you invite Him to take the most important position in your life as Counselor and Defender.
Every time you face a new experience, you should turn to Christ for His interpretation and strength.... Everything you do is in the context of your relationship with Christ.
What an incredible act of God's grace that Christ should stand beside you to guide you and counsel you and defend you!
