Devotion day #10: Fullness of Joy (The presence of God)
Are you walking in the fullness of Joy? The kind of joy that cannot be shaken or taken away because it’s God breathed. Straight from the presence of the Lord. Have you ever thought it possible to have such kind of joy?
Sometimes we’re convinced that a simple forced public smile represents true joy. It is the dead in spirit who trade genuine fruit for facade. But it is the alive in spirit who rise up like David, so full of pure joy from the Lord that they’ll dance with all their might (2Sam 6:14-15).
Jesus said, “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you...(Jn 15:11)” There’s a Joy in Jesus that remains. A joy that will completely fill you and stay. Imagine joy so full that it is not partial to circumstance and what one might feel. Full joy that releases a smile of the heart in the good times, even hard times, and the uncomfortable times.
Embrace the outpouring of this unspeakable joy that is available to you in the presence of our lord (1Pet 1:8).
"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: In thy presence is fulness of Joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."
Lord, allow your joy to fill me today as I dwell in your presence. Pour it out upon me like oil that I may experience the fullness of it. Let it remain in me, even as a constant spring of refreshing.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
