Continually With God
Psalms 73:21: Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. 22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. 23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. 24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
There is a tremendous difference between a believer and an unbeliever. Unbelievers are never with God and believers are continually with Him. Being with Him and having Him living in our hearts is the most blessed privilege that has ever been accorded to men. And this in spite of our foolishness and ignorance. The revelation of these things was like a light that went on for David. In spite of the fact that he had been grieved, foolish and ignorant he became joyful and grateful for the blessings God had given him and would certainly continue to give him. Thou hast holden me by my right hand. 24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. . . . God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
I am continually with thee. And He is continually with you. Let that soak into your thoughts. What more could we possibly want or need? What a sad thing it is for believers not to know that God is with them and in them.
John 14:16: And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Ephesians 3:17: That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Hebrews 13:5: Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Philippians 1:6: Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
2 Peter 1:3: According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
