Pleasures at His Right Hand – My Daily Bread!
I can never get enough of the goodness of the Lord! The Word describes the most beautiful picture of being in the Lord’s presence. One of my most favorite Psalms is found in Psalm 16: 11, NIV, which reads:
“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.”
I tell myself, I cannot even adequately describe eternal pleasures of the Lord! Can my mind grasp the depth of the Father’s love? But then each day I see the sunset which covers me like a blanket, or the kiss of rain on my cheek, all gifts that come from God above. In these tender mercies my spirit is encouraged to live up to the Lord’s standards, not down to my own. In these tender mercies I am reminded that Your Son died for me, giving me the path to an eternity with you. Your presence is all around me, I cannot escape knowing the joy of You!
The Psalmist expresses it this way: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (Psalm 139: 7, NIV) Saints, pleasure yourselves in our most awesome inescapable God!
