True Security

Back to Psalm 16. If you have not read the
previous blogs on this particular chapter,
you might want to go back. This blog makes
more sense in context.

"My flesh dwells secure." (Why?)
"For You will not abandon my soul to sheol,
or let your holy one see corruption."
(Psalm 16:10)

This verse is plainly about Jesus. He went into hell,
but did not stay there. His body was resurrected from
the grave. What strikes me about this verse is that
God has a different perspective from me. I see things
in terms of time; He sees everything from the perspective
of Eternity. We have this promise that, "to be absent from
the body is to be present with the Lord." (II Cor. 5:8)
We also have the promise that our bodies, even after death,
will be resurrected and transformed. We will not stay in
the grave! (Corinthians 15:51,52)
My time here is but a split second in light of eternity.
God will not abandon me to the grave. I have a future
and a hope. Even my flesh dwells secure.

Reader, do you know Him?
