For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence. Psalm 21:6
Nearly everyone has someone who they are extremely excited to be around or have around. There are also certain famous people that many people would go a bit crazy to be around. They think that they would have great joy to be around one of those people. Often this is a temporary joy due to the wealth or public position of the famous person. People want a part of what that other person has, whether materially or socially or something else.
David, talking as the king, says that God has blessed him forever and made him overjoyed with His presence.
The world chases after dreams of publicity and wealth. They get excited and overjoyed with being in the presence of those with high society and extreme wealth.
Sadly, many in the church find that same excitement as the world does. Sometimes it is with people in the world, while other times it is with come famous believer. They find great joy in being around some person, while often forgetting God.
Believers should find extreme joy in God’s presence in their lives. God is the creator of the universe, the highest authority in all creation and He is willing to be in one’s life. There is no one or anything greater than God.
Having God in one’s life means that one has life, peace, authority, joy, protection, wisdom, love, and much more each and every moment. This is something that no man can take away and is available day and night with no end.
The presence of God should be the greatest focus of believers, knowing that when they are doing God’s will, God is present, and nothing can harm them.
You will have days when you are alone and that no one else can be with you to help you through the struggles of life. During those times, and also in the good times, God is always right there by your side, never leaving you, nor forsaking you for anything. Hold on to that knowledge that God is present with you and be overjoyed that He wants to spend time with you.
Every moment that God is with you, you are blessed beyond anything that any person on the earth could ever give or do for you.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God’s presence in your life each day; that you will be overjoyed knowing God is with you; and that you will know the blessings of God’s presence in your life.
