Sheer Delight

"For you have made me a blessing for ever; you have given me joy in the light of your face. For I have faith in the Lord, and through the mercy of the Most High I will not be moved." Psalm 21:6-7

We are a blessing forever because the fountain of God springs forth from our inner self. This spring continues flowing because we spend extend times in His presence, enjoying the shining light of His face. The presence of God in us confirms His love to us and it gives us confidence in each moment, under all circumstances and during every experience.  

Therefore, even in the middle of crisis and chaos, we remember that God is always good and creative. Just as He provided manna in the desert, just as there were 12 baskets left over after the miracle of the fish and bread, just as He raised Lazarus from the dead, and just as he gave us eternal life making us new creatures, certainly He can fulfill each and every need we have today; and certainly He will continue walking with us in the midst of the moments of crises and chaos in our lives.  

Psalm 21:7 reminds us that our confidence must always be totally place in God; don't focus on situations and feelings, instead remember that Jesus came to give us life in abundance and not death, depression, sadness, sickness or poverty. How can we keep this strong and secure confidence? … basking in His presence, because "in His presence we experience abundant joy and He always give us sheer delight." Psalm 16:11
