Psalm 16:11 You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Are you happy? Is your life filled with joy? Would you like your life to be joy filled? Well, to be honest, it can not truly happen apart from God.
Are you living with temporary joy that is based on things and circumstances? That kind of joy is available to all, but joy unspeakable is only found on the path where God is leading.
The joy God offers is a supernatural work of His Holy Spirit. This joy the world can not give and neither can they take it away.
John 15:10-11 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. 11 I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.
Let God lead the way! Why? God's direction and or guidance in life is of necessity for the people of God. Just because we daily travel the path of life does not necessarily means that we are on the path that leads to life everlasting.
It is the Lord God who makes known the path in life we should take. The path of righteousness is revealed by God alone for He knows the path in which we should take that lead us not only to abundant life with Him now but life everlasting in eternity.
The beauty of taking the path where God is leading is the fact that on this path with God there is fullness of joy and pleasure forever more.
How can I experience this Joy? We experience this joy by drawing close to God and allowing Him to lead the way. When God leads the way we are daily being lead in the light of God’s presence where there is fullness of joy.
We are reminded in this text that God alone will reveal and make know to us, the path of life in which we should take that leads to His presence.
Do you want to draw closer to God? Well, we all have to take a self examination test. What path are we on now? Is it the path where God is leading or we leading ourselves? If you are self leading, you need to repent, ask for forgiveness and turn to God for direction and guidance in getting you back on the path where He (God) is leading the way.
Satisfied in the Lord! Are you there yet?
Today is the day to build confidence in your relationship with God. It is through God leading the way is where it all begins.
People of God, let the Lord God continue to lead the way in your life for on His path is His presence and fullness of joy.
