Pleasures Forevermore (6/2/2019)
“You will show me the path of life;
“In Your presence is fulness of joy;
“At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11).
Contextually, David speaks of Jesus in this verse, describing His relationship with His heavenly Father who would guide Him through the path of suffering and sacrifice He would go through here for the benefit of all mankind.
After His mission in this life is completed, Jesus will ascend to be at the right hand of His Father in whose presence He can experience all of the joy and pleasures heaven has to offer.
Beyond the context, all Christians can take a firm grasp on the hope that lies within our hearts: God indeed guides us through the path of life through the power of His word. And we, too, can know through inspiration that whatever sacrifices we must make here, they will be worth it when we enter into the presence of divinity and enjoy heaven for all eternity.
