You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermorePsalm 16:11
Isn't this verse sweet? Because of the Lord we have the path of life, fullness of joy, and pleasures forevermore.
You make known to me the path of life
He is the guide (You) and I am the traveler (me). He shows me the way (path) that is perfectly aligned with His will (life). As a young man, it is extremely comforting to know that He will make known to me the path for my life. He has already led me to the narrow path of salvation through Christ, so I can be confident that He will continue to show me His path.
in your presence there is fullness of joy
Fullness of joy is found in his presence! I need to continually remember that true joy is found in his presence so that I don't make broken cisterns that can't hold any water; instead, I need to go to the Fountain of living water (Jeremiah 2:13). Fullness of joy! The Holy Spirit's presence is in us, but I can't wait to be in His presence!
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Who is at the right hand of the Father? Jesus! There are pleasures forevermore more found at the right hand of the Father, where Jesus is. Therefore, there are pleasures forevermore found in Jesus.
Also, it is pretty cool to know that I have the same verse memorized that the Apostle Peter had memorized. In Acts 2, Peter preached a sermon and he quoted Psalm 16:11 by memory (v.28):
You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence.’
Remember! LIFE, JOY, and PLEASURES are found only in the Lord.
