Bible Study for Ministry, Christian Women, and The Pastor's Wife ~ I Am in His Presence, Part 4
Psalms 16: 11 "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."
We are still on the second phrase of this Scripture: "in thy presence is fulness of joy."
A question that may arise that Moses (from yesterday) is in Old Testament, is that relevant for today?
We will let The Bible speak for The Bible. Let's look at Luke 12:31-32. "But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." If it is God's good pleasure to give you the kingdom, then why would He deny your presence in His presence?
God's "good pleasure." Our "fulness of joy." This speaks of a deep, satisfying, fulfilling relationship that goes both directions; not just one way.
In Matthew 6:33. the word "first" is added. "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
In part 5, we are going to look at a lady on her ranch and what she was doing to be in His presence.
Be blessed in The Name above every name, Jesus! I know I am!
