“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.” Psalm 16:11
God desires to direct our steps in life and fill us with abundance. The richness of following Him gives us the strength to face life’s adversities with joy. This path was clearly marked out for us through Jesus, as He paved the way for our eternal joy through the cross and resurrection. Jesus alone gives us life that is filled with joy in His presence.
Some things compete with joy or offer us a false happiness. This happiness often appears as the way of life. Many will travel this road to find their happiness, but once experienced it will leave us empty. It is like tasting the real thing and then being offered an artificial substitute.
Jesus offers us real joy that will not leave based on circumstances. His offer is for eternity and pours in His love daily. He did not offer a substitute to fill in His place, as He gave us Himself.

Do you have any substitutions?
