Advent Study Day 18

Scripture: Psalm 16:11

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.

Observation

  • The Lord shows us the path of life — through scripture and teaching. God’s presence provides the ultimate joy, and at His right hand is where we will have eternal pleasures.

Application

  • We won’t ever be fully satisfied in this world. God has something great waiting for those who believe and accept Jesus. We must have an eternal perspective — we can’t afford to “live in the now” and focus only on today’s worldly treasures. We must put our focus on Heaven above.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you for the reminder that this world can’t satisfy our deep-seated desire for You. You put us on earth for a reason; please help me to always know you have a plan for me that may not be what I have planned for myself. I ask for guidance and wisdom in life, and to always have an eternal perspective in everything I do. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
