Psalm 16 “At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore”

(Our study with Psalm 16 is available here)

Being able to share the life of Christ today and believe that our names are written in heaven (Luk_10:20), is something that God gives to those who He is preparing to be saviors who will come up to judge mount Esau (Oba 1:21).

Luk 10:20  Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Oba 1:21  And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.

God preserves His children by teaching them to put their trust in Him, as commanded in Proverbs (Pro 3:5-6). That trust can only deeply occur when we are granted the fiery trials (1Pet 4:12) that cause us to cry out to our Father, as we stop using human reasoning to resolve our cares, and lean solely on our Creator who calls us to cast all those cares upon Him and not lean on our flesh (1Pet 4:2 , 1Pet 5:7 , 2Cor 1:9).

Pro 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Pro 3:6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

1Pe 4:12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

1Pe 4:2  That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

1Pe 5:7  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

2Co 1:9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

As we grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and come to see how every joint of Christ’s body supplies what each other needs to help us grow into that relationship of trust (Eph 4:16), we also come to see that this is what it means today for Christ’s bride to know that “at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” or a hundred-fold reward of knowing our Lord in this intimate relationship He has given each of us to share today (Mat 19:29 , Joh 13:14).

Eph 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Mat 19:29  And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Joh 13:14  If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.

This study looks at how we come to that place of knowing “in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore”, and that ultimately in our walk with our Lord today, we can have the joy and peace of knowing that through Christ and His body there is nothing that can separate us from His love, or as it is written in verse nine “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope”.
