“My heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. – You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.”
Psalms 16:9, 11 (NLT)
We were made for rhythms of joy and quiet. David is a perfect example. His heart was full of joy and peaceful rest. But what was his secret? Was it his circumstances? Was it his wealth? Was it the adoration of thousands of followers? No, David’s joy and peace came from his enjoying God’s presence. It was in God’s presence that he felt a love and grace that overwhelmed him with joy and reverent rest. It was this pleasure of living in God’s presence that allowed for David’s rhythm of joy and rest. You can experience the same. Today, spend time in God’s presence. Meditate on His love for you. Let His presence bring you the same joy and quiet that it gave David.
Father, I come to You now. I want to experience the joy and peace of Your presence.
