COMMUNICATION WITH GOD
It is so good to be able to communicate with God. Tell Him all about your troubles. He knows the way in which you are going and will guard your every footstep. He will grant to you His joy and peace. The songwriter wrote, “Have a little talk with Jesus. Tell Him all about your troubles. He will hear our faintest cry. Answer by and by.” I know that to be true. There is nothing like spending time sharing our intimate thoughts, prayers, and concerns with Jesus. The scripture reference is Psalm 16:11.
“You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.”
In this text, the psalmist declares the security that he has in the Lord. He recognizes his immortality. He knows that his life will one day end. He is not upset for he knows in his journey with God that even death will not separate him from God’s love. His heart is glad, and he rejoices that God is with him. He walks in the presence and fullness of the joy of the Lord. He knows that in the Lord’s Right Hand there are pleasures forever more. His life’s journey has meaning, and he is able to communicate with God throughout the day and night. The psalmist is never alone for he feels God’s presence surround him. He is able to talk to God in times of grief and pain. God is there! He rejoices in the Lord with an overflowing heart of gladness. When we communicate with God, He lifts us from our moments of sadness and pain. God assures us that He is with us. What a blessing it is to spend time in His presence. Only God can give a fulfillment. Take the time today, and every day, to communicate with God. Your life will be blessed.
