I Saw the Lord Always Before Me

Savior God, shortly after Jesus ascended into heaven, the Holy Spirit came and filled each disciple on the day of Pentecost. Peter stood and began to preach to the assembled believers in the upper room: “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know- this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it. For David says concerning him, ‘I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also will dwell in hope. For you will not abandon my soul to Hades or let your Holy One see corruption. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence.’” Acts 2:22–28 (ESV). Lord, we worship you and thank you for sending Jesus to die as a sacrifice on a cross on our behalf. May we, like David, also be able to say that the Lord is always before us. Amen.
