“You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.” Psalms 16:11 NLT
What do you find in the presence of God? You may be thinking, aren't we always in His presence? Well, yes, but when you recognize His presence your world changes.
When in His presence the psalmist was reminded that God will show him the way of life. We can often become so consumed with life that we lose sight of God's way to live. Why? Because we have lost sight of God's presence.
Something else that should be evident when we recognize God's presence in our life is joy. “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!” Philippians 4:4 NLT
True joy comes in knowing that this way of life and the joy of God's presence is eternal.
“And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.” 1 John 5:20 NLT
Look around and recognize God's presence in your life today.
You will discover the way of life, joy in life and the pleasure of knowing you have eternal life with the Lord.
