Everlasting Joy in God’s Presence | Psalm 16
Joel Brown | August 12, 2018
As humans, we are made for joy. But in our fallenness, we often seek joy in the wrong places. The truth of Psalm 16 is this: God’s presence is the only place where everlasting joy is found.
- Look through Psalm 16. What has the Lord done for David? What is David’s attitude toward the Lord?
Has there ever been a time in your life where you were especially aware of God’s presence? How has that situation affected you through times where you felt he was distant?
- How is your relationship with the Lord going? Are you currently seeking God's presence or running after other gods? What would those who know you best say?
- Take time to thank the Lord for the joy he has prepared for us in his kingdom and for providing salvation through Jesus, our living Savior (v.9-11).
- Pray that Christ would help you to experience so much joy that it would be attractive and drawing to those in your life who have not yet trusted in Jesus.
