Bible Verse for Today
“You will show me the path of Life: in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures forever more.” (Psalm 16:11)
Nobody and nothing can make us to be sorrowful if we don’t allow it. Even in any unpleasant situation of life, if we decide not to be sorrowful, nothing else can make us to be. Sorrow can bring so many bad occurrences, bad thoughts, degrading, and so many other bad experiences. Ones you allow sorrow, you are going to be defeated.
Also, you can’t look for perfect and permanent joy anywhere except in Jesus. The latter part of Psalm 16:11 says “at your right hand are pleasures forever more.” The pleasures that accompany the joy of the Lord is forever. That means the Joy of the Lord is forever. God’s Joy in you can also be the source of your strength. Nehemiah 8:10 “The Joy of the Lord is your strength.” When you feel all hope is lost, know that there is a certain joy from God and the joy gives you strength to face any challenges because in the presence of God there is fullness of joy.
