In HIS Presence – S3-DE17

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Psalm 16:11 (AMP) Amplified Translation says; 

11 You will show me the path of life;  

In Your presence is fullness of joy;  

In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. 

Psalm 16:11 (AMP)

Devotional 

Are you a planner? I am. In my human nature, I want to plan what’s next. It’s a defense mechanism for me so that I can feel a sense of control over my life. But I have learned that my plans aren’t what God has planned for me. 

You see, since the beginning of time—God had a plan for each one of us. And HIS plan involved HIM in everything that concerns us. HE wants to be an infinite part of our lives. Because HE knows what’s best for us. 

But, we often, think that we know more than God about what’s best for us; only to find out later that we don’t have a clue. We struggle from problem to problem, relationship to relationship, job to job, meat to vegetables; and yet haven’t consulted God about any of it. 

And believe me—communicating with God has greater benefits for better outcomes. In HIS Presence we find something that we lack when we avoid HIS input—JOY! 

That JOY of being In HIS Presence comes from the assurance of knowing that HE supplies all we need. JOY comes when HE counsels us, and HE instructs us in matters of life. 

In HIS Presence, our heart is glad because we can be confident that our lives are safely in HIS HANDS.  

He will not abandon you are me! Praise God! 

God wants to introduce Himself through Jesus. ALL will see that IN HIS PRESENCE there is a LOVE that no one else can give. There’s a saving grace that’s made available for all that will receive that’s wrapped IN HIS PRESENCE

God wants to direct our path—starting with opening our eyes to THE LIGHTJesus Christ!  

And when we are no longer in the dark, we can finally see. God takes our hand and guides us along the right path. That right path leads us to eternal life through Jesus Christ.  

That brings me great JOY!!! 

So, when trouble comes, and it does for everyone, our focus should not stay on the trouble. We must focus on Jesus and stay—IN HIS PRESENCE. 

And finally— 

Beloved, the JOY comes when we remind ourselves that we are not alone—the LORD is with us. Staying in communication with God allows HIM to counsel us and impart wisdom. 

We don’t have to have all the answers. But we can find JOY in knowing that we have a Heavenly Father that knows ALL THINGS

And in HIS PRESENCE, God will refresh your spirit, your mind and your plans. Trust HIM and receive ALL the benefits of HIS PRESENCE! 

Let’s Pray… 

Heavenly Father, 

We welcome YOU in the Name of Jesus!  We thank YOU for Your Presence with us, O God. Thank you for Jesus being our Lord and Savior. Thank you that we are—forgiven!  

Thank you for the benefits of YOUR Presence

Thank you for keeping us safe. Thank you that we can run to you, O God, no matter what we face. We thank you for wise counsel as you deposit wisdom in us. Thank you that we can lay down in safety and our sleep be sweet. We don’t have to worry about what’s next because YOU are in our tomorrow.  

There’s nobody like you God!!! 

For you know our destination, and our path is laced with YOUR PRESENCE. Thank you for taking our hand and leading us along the way. In Jesus Name, Amen! 

Have faith in Jesus! Rest in HIS PRESENCE!  

Grace and Peace to you all! And remember that JESUS IS LORD!
