One Thing 2/6/12
Ps.16:11You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
What a great verse. Everybody longs for joy, and in this verse we offered fullness of joy. Nothing in this world offers fullness of joy. We live in a fallen world, and the joy this world offers is very often false and leaves us empty, or at the least fleeting and leaves us broken hearted. There are many legitimate pleasures in this world that brings us real joy, such as family, but not even that can compare to the pleasures of His presence that brings fullness of joy. The pleasure that comes from being addicted to His presence is so beyond anything this world can offer. I’m convinced that the path to holiness is Beholding His beauty. As you make that your OneThing passion and pursui,t the pleasures of His presence becomes more powerfull than the pleasures of sin. The pleasures of experiencing His presence, and His lovesick heart for us makes beholding His beauty truly a magnificent obsession. You want pleasure that brings full and lasting joy no matter what’s happening to you or around you, well now you know how to get it. Have a great day In Christ.
