Acts 3:19 says,
Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
Only in His presence will you find strength, hope, love, joy, peace, happiness, and whatever it is you are looking for. You will never find complete satisfaction, happiness, love or joy in someone elses arms, especially if the love of God is not in them. If you can’t love the God who created you, wakes you up, and lends you breath for the day, how are you going to love another person, and make someone else happy. Therefore, King David was right when he said in His presence is fullness of joy, and at His right hand are pleasures forevermore, how can you ever refute David’s statement, when he has experienced the agonies of defeat and the thrills of victory in God’s presence; and I am sure there are a few people like myself who can attest to that fact.
Allow me to give you one of David’s testimony, that I touched on earlier, located in Psalms 16:9-11 which reads, “Therefore, my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh will rest in hope, for you will not leave my soul in Sheol, nor will you allow your holy one to see corruption, you will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy; at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.” This means that the only one who can truly give you lifelong pleasures, joy, peace, love and everything else you need is God. Do you know Him or even have a relationship with Him to get His everlasting pleasures, and gifts?
Moses knew what it was like to be in God’s presence, so he told God that, if His presence does not go with him, then don’t bring them out of where they were. Let’s read a portion of Moses’ conversation with God in Exodus 33:13-15, “Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in your sight show me now your way, that I may know you, and that I may find grace in thy sight, and consider that this nation is your people; And He said,”My presence go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then he (Moses) said to Him (God),”If your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.” This confirms that being in the presence of God is far better than being out of it, that’s why in Psalm 51:11, David said, “Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me.”
Why would anyone want to be out of His presence is just ludicrous, because in it is fulness of joy, but, “Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ; These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power, when He comes in that day, to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” – 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 Where would you rather be? In or out of His presence.
Do you want to be in God’s presence? Then you have to accept His personal special gift of His only begotten Son (Jesus), because He is the way the truth and the life, and no one goes to God without going through Him (John 14:6). If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness – 1 John 1 :9 So if you are serious and willing to be in His presence continually, just go to the top of this blog, then click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, then find a faith filled Bible believing church, where you can be fed with the infallible Word of God.
“Therefore we also pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power, that the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ” – 2 Thessalonians 1:11
