“In Your presence is fullness of Joy; In your right hand there are pleasures for evermore”. Psalm 16:11
God so wants us to enjoy Him. A funny thought when we so often have so many demands and expectations on our lives. Above everything else He wants us to enjoy Him, because He loves us. He loves us so much.
We actually don’t have to do anything to earn or keep that love. He just loves us.
We simply need to turn our face towards Him and let ourselves experience that Love, to be in His love.
I remember years ago when we had just had our first beautiful baby girl Anna and I was wondering how to do everything and be everything.
God spoke to me and said, “Just “be” instead of do” “Being rather than doing!” What a relief that was. God didn’t expect me to do anything just simply to be, to be in His presence, to be full in Him, to be joyful, to be happy.
Often when I am busy I will hear those words whispered again. “Just be, don’t do”. When I take notice and stop “doing”, then everything that needs to happen in my world flows. When I take my attention off Him and get into striving and doing, I always end up in a “pickle”.
We so need to practice just “being”, being in God’s presence, being in Him, knowing that we are already “in Him, connected and having fullness of life in Jesus.” Col 2:10.
Spending today “Being” in His presence where fullness of joy is.
