Re:Verse reading–Psalm 16 (day four)
It was the day of Pentecost…a noise like a great rushing wind…and the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit!  The results were amazing.  People did not know what to think.  It was Peter (anyone surprised?) who stood to preach and give explanation.  In Acts 2:24, Peter said, “But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.”  He then says in verse 25, “For David says of Him,…” and then he quotes from Psalm 16:8-11.  Peter recognized, through the power of the indwelling Spirit, that when the Psalmist wrote the inspired words of God, it was impossible for them not to come true.  All of God’s promises come true.  He promised that His Holy One would not undergo decay.  For Peter, with his new understanding, there was no doubt as to God’s faithfulness.  What promises has God made that you have yet to accept and believe?  He never fails!
