Immediately, we see the language of faith. David takes cover in God. The life of trusting God, as David shows us, makes his heart glad, indeed, his whole being rejoices, and his flesh dwells secure verse 9.
But why does his flesh dwell secure? Which is to say: either his death will forever be prevented, or there will be a resurrection. Jesus Was Raised The theme of resurrection is important, and it has clear allusions to the Messiah. In fact, the apostles tell us explicitly that this verse is about Jesus Acts — So Psalm 16 is about Jesus, and that is really good news.
For just as Christ was raised from the dead, so also will we be raised 1 Corinthians — For the Christian, we have more than the promise of resurrection; we have an actual demonstration. The tomb is empty. The guiding grace of God is for more than this life. The path of life goes beyond the nuts and bolts of faith to refer to the whole trajectory of our lives as those who, in Christ, have been reconciled to God.
He will not abandon us. He makes known to us the path of life — life beyond the grave, life that ushers us into his presence where there is fullness of joy, where at this right hand there are pleasures forevermore. So We Rejoice So we dwell secure here. Our whole being rejoices. We are glad. We can fix our eyes upon the cross and run to our Savior — our Savior who is risen from the dead, who has trampled death by his own sacrificial death. We can rejoice because Jesus, by his strength, is raised from the dead, and we, by his grace, will be raised with him.
Church, come awake! Let us proclaim: Christ is risen from dead! Scripture Psalm "11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
O death, where is your sting?
