Scripture: Psalm 16:9-11 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay. 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.
Devotional: King David famously penned these words; words that debunk the false assumption that Heaven will be boring. Because of the corruption of this world, we too often couple pleasure with sin. But the truth is, our desire for pleasure and joy come directly from God’s hand.
Have you earnestly considered the joy and pleasure awaiting you in eternity? God promises to rescue you from the decay of death and to fill you with joy and pleasure free from guilt and shame. Pure joy.
Let that promise spur you on toward seeking to know and understand more about this Heaven which awaits you.
