“You will teach me how to live a holy life. Being with you will fill me with joy; at your right hand I will find pleasure forever.”
Psalms 16:11 NCV
The lord teaches the path or the way of life, and that path leads to a holy life. In His presence is holy living as well as joyful living. The pleasures of eternity are at his right hand. He is in eternity and living in His presence will lead to joy and holiness.
The pleasure of eternity and the joy of today are tied to a holy life, and that life can only be found by living in the presence of JESUS! Living in his precedence provides joy and a life lived on purpose. Joy is not an activity, rather joy is a location..in His presence!
Lord help us to live in your presence and pursue you, in the pursuit of you we will find joy and holiness and the pleasures of eternity!
Today is a great day to pursue Jesus! My morning SOAP!
“For you, O Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will sing joyfully at the works of Your hands.”
Psalms 92:4 MEV
“You thrill me, LORD, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done.”
Psalms 92:4 NLT
We have a reason to be amazed! God is GREATER! I have JOY not because of my condition, I have JOY because of all that He has done for me. Grace provided a way for me to encounter life, and simply living is enough to have real JOY, not conditional JOY!
God never ceases to amaze us in all he has done and continues to do in us. I am astounded and amazed at the grace and mercy of God. I see my family and the work I get to do and I am so amazed at what God is doing. Go ahead, smile! Let the stress of life fade away in light of the greatness of Your God. He has done great things! So sing a new song and allow JOY to impact your situation regardless of your condition!
Lord help me to never lose the joy of your salvation, help me to never lose my sight of what you are truly doing. You are up to some great things in my life. You have done some amazing things and Real Joy is found in Real life and that is in YOU!
