You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Can you really live in the presence of God every day of your life? According to our Scripture verse for today, you can.
You and I can enjoy the presence of God when we open His Word and let it speak to us, when we gather with fellow Christians and worship, and when we pray with open hearts to Him.
That’s when God revives our spirit and Jesus gives us joy that fills our lives.
There’s the joy of the Scripture… there’s the joy of the Savior… and there’s the joy of salvation. In fact, Jesus said in Luke 10:20, “Rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
Yes, the greatest joy of all is knowing that you’re saved!
But today, perhaps you realize that you’re not saved. Maybe you don’t know the joy of salvation in Jesus Christ.
If you would like to know that joy and accept the salvation that Jesus offers, I invite you to pray this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, I want to live in the joy and presence of God without sin. I know you made that possible when you paid the price for my sins with your blood. Please come into my life. Forgive my sins and take me into God’s presence. Thank you for your grace and joy. Amen.
Second Corinthians 5:21 says, “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” If you’ve just prayed this prayer, rejoice that you have been declared righteous by God!
THE GREATEST JOY OF ALL IS KNOWING THAT YOU’RE SAVED!
