“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Psalm 16:11
Today, God wants you to know that Jesus is not a boring God. He is fun!
Many Christians see God as an angry God. One wrong move and He would immediately send out His lightning to bring forth punishment. But this is not true.
The Bible is full of passages where they depict God as a happy God. Zephaniah 3:17 says, “The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One will save. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Meanwhile, Romans 4:17 declared that joy is one-third of the kingdom of God.
Thereby, we can say that happiness outside of God’s presence won’t last. But true joy can only be received in Him.
If you have found yourself dry and obliged in following Christ, meaning you are no longer enjoying His presence, ask God for forgiveness. Rebuke the spirit of callousness and overfamiliarity with His Word. And allow God to fill you once again with the joy of His salvation and excitement in your heart.
