Psalm 16 is a Psalm of trust, written by King David. This is how the Psalm concludes:
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)
Close to the Lord is clearly the right place to be. Jesus leads us in the path for our life – His good plan, our “sweet spot”, the path that glorifies Him and blesses us. Being tight with Jesus is where a life of joy is found – lasting joy, the “fullness of joy.” Being tight with Jesus brings us to “pleasures forevermore.” Get close and stay close. Confess the sin that separates. Choose time in the Word and in prayer. Surround yourself with people who are walking with Him. Live life tight with Jesus, and be blessed!
