Psalm 16:11 - Fullness of Joy is in Gods Presence.

Psalm 16:11 (NKJV) You will show me the path 
of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; 
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  


Joy comes from being in Gods presence. 
True joy is far deeper than happiness; we can 
feel joy in spite of our deepest troubles. 
Happiness is temporary because it is based on external 
circumstances, but joy is lasting because it is based on 
Gods presence within us. As we contemplate his 
daily presence, we will find contentment. As we 
understand the future he has for us, we will experience 
joy. Dont base your life on circumstances, but 
on God. [Life Application SB] 

Our growth in grace, our joy, our 
usefulness,--all depend upon our union with Christ. It is by 
communion with Him, daily, hourly,--by abiding in Him, 
--that we are to grow in grace. He is not only the 
Author, but the Finisher of our faith. It is Christ 
first and last and always. He is to be with us, 
not only at the beginning and the end of our 
course, but at every step of the way. [Remnant SOP 


   Two weeks ago, my friend from church 
Brenda and I started walking. She graciously agreed 
to meet me at my favorite walking trail, which 
is lined with trees that provide shade. On the 
other side of the trail, there is a man-made lake 
that is lined with small trees and filled with 
families of duck and geese. When we get to the side 
of the trail where the lake is, Brenda always 
comments on the ducks. She coos at the ducklings and 
counts the ducks and their families. It is 
interesting to see her reaction when she sees the white 
ducks and the geese. Since I have been passing by 
these birds for several years, I dont look at 
them in awe anymore. Im too busy completing my 
miles so I can move on to the next activity of the 
   Several years ago, I noticed that my mind 
is always churning and I am never fully present 
in any activity. I can miss out on the 
pleasures of life because I dont totally focus on 
the present. At times, not being focused in the 
moment and not sitting in the presence of Jesus can 
prevent us from seeing the path that He has for us. 
   Lately, I have been asking Jesus to help 
me remain present in His love. Just like my 
friend Brenda was aware of the beauty of the ducks 
and geese, I want to be aware of all that Jesus 
brings to my life each day. When we are aware of 
His presence, we can experience abundant joy and 
enjoy all the beauty of life, no matter how big or 
small. My desire is to be fully present, basking in 
the pleasures of Jesus as He guides me in life.

   Faith Step: Today, take some time to 
appreciate all your surroundings. Thank Jesus for 
making you aware of His presence. Let His joy 
permeate your soul. [Mornings With Jesus 2020 
Devotional by Guideposts and Zondervan] 


   In My Presence you can find fullness of 
Joy, perfect Peace, and unfailing Love. Walk with 
Me along the path of life - enjoying My company 
each step of the way. Because I am always by your 
side, the Joy of My Presence is yours for the 
   I will keep you in perfect Peace as you 
fix your thoughts on Me. Stay in communication 
with Me through your spoken words, thoughts, and 
songs. Spend ample time absorbing My Word - letting 
it speak into your heart, where it changes the 
way you think and live. As you ponder who I 
really am, My Light shines warmly into your mind, 
helping you live in My Peace. 
   Beloved, I want you to flourish in My 
Presence - like an olive tree flourishing in the 
house of God. As the sunlight of My Presence 
nourishes you, you are able to produce abundant fruit 
in My kingdom. And the more you trust in My 
unfailing Love, the more you will realize how utterly 
secure you are. (Psa. 16:11; Isa. 26:3; Psa. 2:8) 
[Jesus Always by Sarah Young] 

   I give you Joy in your journey through 
the world. This sparkling gift is not a luxury; 
it's a necessity! There are bumps in the road 
ahead, as well as sharp curves, ascents, and 
descents. Without Joy in your heart, you will become 
weary and discouraged. 
   Joy is not dependent on the circumstances 
in your life. It can transcend them all! This 
is why impoverished people are often more 
joyful than those who have material wealth. Sick - 
and even dying - people can also be joyful when 
they're trusting in Me as Savior, Lord, and Friend. 
   Seek to spread Joy in the world around 
you. Let My Light reflect from your demeanor - 
through your smiles, your laughter, your words. The 
Holy Spirit will equip you to do this as you give 
Him space in your life. Ask Him to fill you with 
contagious delight. Concentrate on staying close to Me, 
and I will lead you along the path of Life. In 
My Presence there is fullness of Joy. (Heb. 
12:3; Hab. 3:17, 18; Psa. 16:11) [Jesus Always by 
Sarah Young] 

   The Joy you have in Me is independent of 
your circumstances. In My Presence is fullness of 
Joy, and you are never separated from Me. Search 
for Me as you go along your pathway today. I 
delight in disclosing Myself to you. Sometimes I 
communicate with you in grand, unmistakable ways " 
coincidences" that are deafly the work of My hands. At 
other times I display My unseen Presence in subtle 
ways. These are often so personal to you that 
others wouldn't even notice them. Yet these subtle 
signs can be a source of deep, intimate Joy.  
   The more attentive you are, the more you 
can find Me in the details of your day. So try 
to stay alert - be on the lookout for Me!  
   Fill your mind and heart with Scripture, 
where I reveal Myself most clearly. Let My 
promises permeate your thinking and keep you close to 
Me. Listen to My voice. I know you, and you 
follow Me. I give you eternal Life; no one can 
snatch you out of My hand. Rejoice! (Psa. 16:11; 
Jer. 29:13; John 10:27, 28) [Jesus Always by 
Sarah Young] 





If anyone has a paraphrase, commentary or 
testimony on this passage of Scripture, either 
personal or otherwise, I would be interested in 
hearing from you.  Thanks in advance and let's keep 
uplifting Jesus that all might be drawn to Him. Fred
