This weeks song comes out of Psalm 16:
I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.... You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand (Psalm 16:8-9, 11)Have you ever truly considered:
- In His presence is fullness of joy;
-There are everlasting pleasures at His right hand.
Those are some serious claims! Do you find that spending time with God is truly the most enjoyable and pleasurable thing that life has to offer??? I think too often we're tricked into believing that God is angry all the time... or even worse: ambivalent. But the truth is He is the most passionate, exciting, pleasurable and joyful being. Ever. If our experience falls short of this, then the good news is that there's more for us to discover about who He is!
I challenge you! if spending time with God has become routine or boring for you, ask Him to open your eyes. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Ask Him right now! And then watch as He takes you on a journey into the heart of the One who is infinitely good, infinitely joyful and infinitely just.
My Heart Is Glad!!!
Just a reminder that this weeks song will also be featured on SouthernFM 88.3 program "Songs of Hope" between 8-9am AEST this Sunday. And if you miss it, you can download podcasts of these programs!
