Bible Reading: Psalm 16
"You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." (Psalm 16:11)
Where is our truest delight? Is it in our Creator and Source of Life? The more we grow, the more we will realise that walking with Him who guides all things for good is the only true joy. Walking with Him through hardships and struggles as well as good times and celebrations is the thing that makes life beautiful. When we are in His path, doing His will, there is nothing we can do but to be happy, delighted and all in all satisfied. Have you experienced true joy in Christ? Surrender yourself to Him today and trust in Him. He wants to walk with You today. He is waiting for You to return to Him. He wants You to experience true Joy.
O GOD WHOSE WILL CONQUERS ALL
There is no comfort in anything apart from
and being engaged in thy service;
Thou art All in all, and all enjoyments are what
to me thou makest them, and no more.
I am well pleased with thy will, whatever it is,
or should be in all respects,
And if thou bidst me decide for myself in any affair,
I would choose to refer all to thee,
for thou art infinitely wise and cannot do amiss,
as I am in danger of doing.
I rejoice to think that all things are at thy disposal,
and it delights me to leave them there.
Then prayer turns wholly into praise,
and all I can do is to adore and bless thee.
What shall I give thee for all thy benefits?
I am in a strait betwixt two, knowing not
what to do;
I long to make some return, but have nothing to
and can only rejoice that thou doest all,
that none in heaven or on earth shares thy honour;
I can of myself do nothing to glorify thy blessed
but I can through grace cheerfully surrender soul
and body to thee,
I know that thou art the author and finisher of faith,
that the whole work of redemption is thine alone,
that every good work or thought found in me
is the effect of thy power and grace,
that thy sole motive in working in me to will
and to do is for thy good pleasure.
O God, it is amazing that men can talk so much
about man’s creaturely power and goodness,
when, if thou didst not hold us back every
moment, we should be devils incarnate.
This, by bitter experience, thou hast taught me
