In Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right
hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11
IN the Lord's presence, no matter where we are, is
fullness of joy. Let us cultivate the Lord's acquaintance
more, drawing near to Him in prayer, in the study of
His precious Word, in meditation upon all His goodness,
His providential care, the marked manifestations
of His grace in our own individual experiences, and
His precious promises which are all yea and amen in
Christ Jesus. Thus "draw nigh to God, and He will
draw nigh to you" (James 4:8); He will manifest Himself
to you and take up His abode with you.
It is indeed the will of God that all His children
should be happy in Him, that they should be always
rejoicing; and if any one lack this blessing, he is living
below his privileges.
