Jesus Gives Overflowing Joy
You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.
Joy in God’s Presence
A life lived in the presence of the Lord is a life filled with joy.
Joy comes from the presence of God. The closer you are to His presence, the greater your joy. A life lived in the presence of the Lord is a life filled with joy.
Jesus Was Joyful
I believe Jesus was a joyful person. So many movies portray Jesus as a solemn, serious person who moved through crowds with his hands raised, blessing people. I don’t believe He went around with a pious frown on His face. To hang with Jesus had to be fun. The Pharisees considered Him a glutton and a drunk. Jesus was a joy-filled person.
Joy should be the natural expression of the Christian life. Circumstances and situations don’t control your joy. Joy is the inner peace that God is in control and is working for your good.
I love that the Psalmist didn’t stop with “joy.” He had to add “abundant joy.” Abundant joy is overflowing joy. Abundant joy is the joy that is more than enough. Abundant joy is overflowing and never-ending joy.
Joy goes beyond your situation. Joy overflows in your life even when things aren’t going as you wish. Joy isn’t dependent on your happiness; it’s based on your relationship with Christ.
When you enter into God’s presence, you realize nothing else matters. You can rejoice because the King of Glory is your Father and works for your good.
Your Source of Joy
Christ in you is a constant source of God’s presence. Today, you have overflowing joy because God’s presence lives in you.
You can be joyful today because God is in control.
You can be joyful today because you are on the path to eternal life.
You can be joyful today because Christ in you is your source of joy.
If you aren’t feeling joyful, maybe you have slipped away from God’s presence. Perhaps it’s time to draw close to Him and once again experience the joy of His presence.
Look at that promise once again.
You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures. – Psalm 16:11
