30 DoW: Psalm 16

Psalm 16
7
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.


8
I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,

I will not be shaken.

9
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,

10 because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.

11 You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

attribute & response:
Counselor. God's counsel gives wisdom. It's only from His wisdom that we learn any true thing. It's only from an understanding of His Word that we understand Him and His ways. We see "Counselor" in Isaiah 9:6 as one of the names of the then coming Immanuel—and a Wonderful one at that.

Praise the LORD for His graciousness in listening to the prayers of His people, and the ways He reveals His wise counsel to us.
