Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of February 22, 2015

JoBeth-33Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11 (KJV)

Have you ever pondered what you really need to find happiness? Or have you been tempted to focus on your desires for pleasure and happiness to the detriment of others? The dominant voices of this world tell us that the only path to fulfillment, personal pleasure and happiness is to pursue the fulfillment of our own needs and desires first and foremost above all else. This scripture challenges us to ask God to show us His path for our life. For in His presence, at His right hand, we are positioned close to His power, authority and protection that overcomes all obstacles with the promise that we will find the fulness of joy and experience pleasures without end that we all long for. Say, “Yes” to the Lord’s path for you this year.
