I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
It’s a choice. The scripture says, “I will set the Lord always before me.” It doesn’t say, “The Lord is always before me.” (Although He is!)
It’s my choice and my goal to always set Him before me, so that He is always the first thing I see. My whole life needs to be informed by the fact that my Lord is always before me. I have to look around Him to see what’s behind Him. Sometimes I ignore Him or even wish He was invisible, but I don’t think I could ever wish He wasn’t there. How can I turn my back on him when he’s always before me?
And what is the significance of Him being at my right hand?
To be seated at someone’s right hand means to have the place of honor. So, I guess it means that I choose to give the Lord the place of highest honor in my life.
And being that close, less than an arms length away, my rescue from any circumstance is assured!
