In The Presence Of God is Fullness Of Joy

Praise the Lord, for He is so good. He sees us where we are and shows His compassion. He is patiently waiting for us to come to Him. He is so patient and extends His mercy to us when we call upon His Name. People who trust in other things more so than God don’t have the privilege of having His goodness extended to them. Therefore, idolatry is telling the Lord that He doesn’t matter, but their false gods, of whom cannot save them. God is excellent and just in all His dealings with people. His love and kindness are unmatched in the lives of those who love Him. I trust in Jesus! He is my Lord, Redeemer, Savior, Prince of peace, and God. My trust in Him is unwavering, for He guides my path. I pray as David did also to the Almighty God and say, “preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.” (Psalm 16:1-5) Amen.

Look to God and rejoice in the Lord our Savior. Because Jesus came down to pay the price for our sins, His blood has covered us and we are forgiven. Praise Him! Notice how pleasant Your life is now with the Lord God at the head. He gives us wise counsel and that cannot be compared with people of this world. He is before me and my paths are made straight. With God in my life, I am happy and much to smile about. In this, I pray with David and say, “the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Psalm 16:6-11) We were once in darkness, but God’s light has shined down upon us and we are set free. His mighty hand is ever before me in my life and contains the fullness of joy. May the Lord be with You and keep you. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I am simply a man of whom does not deserve Your goodness and grace. I have done some horrible things in my lifetime that I am not happy about. Things that I would never wish my own two daughters would ever do. You know how I wrestled with these sins for many years of my life. In my lust, was I undone and always looking for something that could fulfill my fleshly desires. I was lost. I was in darkness. I had nowhere to go but hell in the state of mind I was in. You could have given up on me. You could have declared me unworthy and that was it. Thankfully, I began to call upon Your Name, Jesus, for salvation. In the beginning, it was not sincere, but as years went by I finally had enough of the life of sin I was in, and called upon Your Name for mercy. Lord, I didn’t know if I was capable of receiving forgiveness and thought I was too far gone. Oh, how wrong I was. In my tears did Your awesome presence come round about me. Your goodness, grace, and mercy were felt that day and I will never forget it. You spoke to me and said my sins were forgiven, which changed the course of my life. I owe everything to You, God. My heart proclaims glory, praise, honor, blessings, and thanksgiving to You, Jesus. I love You, Lord. Amen.
