You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore [Psalm 16:11]
3 simple truths jam-packed full of power.
David may have been speaking prophetically about Jesus in this Psalm but he was also speaking from his own experience and personal revelation of who God was to him. He may not have known about Jesus like we do but he recognised the way God is on our side.
God helps us know our paths. Life brings its twists and turns. The confidence of knowing that God is in our world, in our plans and in our purposes can bring extra assurance to each step. Man makes his plans but God ordains the steps.
Gods presence is a place of full joy. We think we know happiness but maybe we only know it partially. The devil steals our joy, and many times we willingly hand it over. Yet Jesus came to give us life in all its fullness, which comes by knowing Him personally. I pray that…you would be filled with the fullness of God.
God at your side brings great reward. Striving for wealth and prosperity is one thing. Keeping God by your side brings it own kind of wealth and prosperity. A different sense of satisfaction, appreciation and fulfilment. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing.
At times we need to choose to be more like David, to acknowledge the beauty of our God, to stand in awe and wonder of how knowing Him can transform our lives. I am thankful for Gods guiding hand, His leading, His presence and to know that He with me, always, right by my side, before me and my rearguard too.
