You, Lord Jesus, have given us three wonders for life right now:]
1) Psalm 16:11 “You have made known to me the path of life;”
[In your love and grace, your compassion and forgiveness, your Spirit has opened and continues to open my eyes to your way, so I can walk on the path, “of the righteous” which “is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever more brightly til the full light of day” (Prov 4:18).
And every day, as we walk on your way, we can give you glory and honor by responding to every situation with praise. To know you is wonderful!]
2) “you will fill me with joy in your presence,”
[Truly, know Jesus is enough for joy! The more we know you, the deeper our joy goes, overflowing, energizing, transforming and guiding. It is not our circumstances, but the certainty of your presence that is the well-spring of joy in our lives. And this will be multiplied a thousand-fold when we pass through death into eternal life. We praise you for it!]
3) “with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
[The certainty of spending eternity with you, Lord Jesus, at your right hand, enjoying the pleasure of your presence, the wonders of your being, the marvels of your new Heaven and new Earth–this is a prospect beyond comprehension. To have this certainty is a further aspect to our present joy.
Yes, Lord Jesus, to know you is enough for joy, a joy that will be ever increasing until death and then exploding into all the dimensions in which you now live, expanding throughout eternity as we learn more and more of your marvelous, infinite character. May I walk together with you in that joy this day, Lord Jesus, so that I can shine the light of your joy on all those I meet.
