WHEN GOD IS NEAR

Read: Psalm 16

Key Verse: “Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body will also rest secure” Psalm 16:9

What difference does it make in your life to draw near to God? Why wake up early in the morning to seek Him? Why pray during the day? Why forsake the cheap thrills of sin? Many people rush through the day and try to accomplish their goals in their own strength.

David gives us three benefits of God’s nearness: 1) Your heart will be glad with the joy of His presence. Have you experienced this lately? 2) Your tongue will speak kind and wise words. Has your speech been like a life-giving fountain? 3) Your body will also rest secure. God carries your burdens and reduces your stress. What do you truly want today in your walk with God?
