IN GOD’S PRESENCE IS JOY


IN GOD’S PRESENCE IS JOY

Psalms 16:11 (NKJV) You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

God, our Father, has shown us the path to true life.  True life can only come through a relationship with the Father, through Jesus.  This life is so full and so rich, yet so many born-again Christians lose out on it by getting so caught up in the lower life of this world. 

This verse says that in God’s presence is fullness of joy.  As we take time to hang out in His presence, it brings such joy and fullness to our being.  God is the One who created us, and He knows what makes us tick. I have found out that what makes me tick is knowing Him, and the only way I can get to know Him is by spending time with Him.

Our Heavenly Father yearns for that.  As He came down in the cool of the day to hang out with Adam and Eve, so He wants to come down and spend time with us.  Jesus showed us that the Father now lives within us, by His Spirit.  So take some time, even now, to say hello to Him, and to acknowledge His presence in your life.  If you start doing this on a consistent basis, your life will be so full of joy, because our Father is Joy.

Confession: In my Father’s presence is fullness of joy!  At His right hand are pleasures forevermore!  Oh, what a day it is going to be, as I acknowledge Him.  The Greater One lives in me, so today will be a day of blessings and fullness.  I go forth as a conqueror, in Him!
