Wonderful Counselor

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 16 (day seven)
“I will bless the Lord who has counseled me; indeed, my mind instructs me in the night. . .because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken”  (vs 7-8)  In David’s time, to be at someone’s “right hand” meant to be his counselor/advisor/confidant.  (Think of Jesus sitting at the “right hand” of God).  When David (vs 8) uses this term to describe God, he is repeating with different words the truth of vs 7.  “I will bless the Lord who has counseled me”.  I wonder how many times David proved this great promise of God.  “Call and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you do not know.”  (Jeremiah 33:3)  “If any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God who gives to all men generously and without reproach and it will be given to him.”  (James 1:5).  What David had,  is what we all need. . . wisdom from the Wonderful Counselor. (Isaiah 9:6)
