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. –Psalm 16:11 NIV
Have you felt like life has stalled? Sometimes the desires and dreams we have for our life don’t match the career we are currently in, the situation or season of life we currently find ourselves in, or the opportunities currently available to us. Often, we search for guidance everywhere. We ask friends, co-workers, social media, and the culture for the path to success and joy.
The Bible says God is our source, and He makes known our path in life. God is the source of our joy. When we spend time in His presence, He gives us joy in the midst of and in spite of our current situation. It is when we place ourselves under His authority that we will enjoy the pleasures of a truly abundant life.
If we are obedient, seeking Him in His word, in prayer, and in worship, He will guide us to the right path. Ask God for direction in your life. Ask Him to show you where you need to surrender authority to Jesus, so that you can have joy now in His presence and receive the blessing He has in store for you.
1) Ask God to help you surrender to His authority in all areas of your life.
2) Spend time in prayer asking God to give you joy in all situations.
