A Daily Devotion for Monday February 12

Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life;

you will fill me with joy in your presence,

with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

This verse is beautiful to me. I believe that God is the source of all good things, and therefore the source of good and pure joy. I also know we cannot always rely on our feelings to be in sync with God's will. But when we are living in God's will for us, and we are filled with joy, I believe that is a gift from God.

Holy Lord, thank you for showing me the path for my life, and for guiding my way. Thank you for the joy I feel when I am close to you. Amen

Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Sorrow is a definite part of everyone’s life, Jesus told us that in this world we will suffer trials and difficulties, but he also told us we must be full or hope , for he would send us his indwelling Holy Spirit.

Psalm 16:11

Every time I read this verse, all that comes to my mind is the words of the 23rd. Psalm. So much of that Psalm is here in this verse. David often reminds us that it is God, not we ourselves, who guides or shepherds us through life. Every time I read the last phrase, my mind reads instead: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. David always gives God all the credit.

Prayer: Gracious God, I often feel your presence when I have listened to that still small voice within me guiding me to something new. Amen

Psalm 16:11

The phrase in this verse that inspires this post is “the path of life.” I was taken immediately to our family trip on the Appalachian Trail and the more recent trek with Becky on the Camino de Santiago. Both were weeks-long journeys on foot in the great outdoors. On these paths, the presence of God was felt frequently -in good times and difficult times. A spiritual retreat from the cares of the world can indeed provide a foretaste of the eternal pleasures at God’s right hand. Our current task is to make ourselves available to those moments while immersed in the day-to-day.

Prayer - Lord, please open my eyes to the path of life right in front of…
