Joy In Jesus’ Presence

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 21:6

Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.


King David was speaking of himself when he talked about what the Lord had done for him. God had blessed him so much that David said he had been made glad with the joy of just being in Jesus’ presence.


When I read this passage I have to step back and ask, “Who even thinks like this anymore?” What a man of God David was. Now I know there wasn’t TV and internet and social media and other kinds of distractions like we have today, but even so, to think that this mighty king would be so GLAD to be in the presence of the Lord is truly uplifting. It made me stop and think, “what really does give me joy?” My wife does. My kids do. My grandkids do too. I have friends that do and some opportunities that do, BUT …  there really is nothing like “Joy In Jesus’ Presence.”  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, turn everything off for a while and get His Word and focus on Him and begin to praise Him. In a few minutes YOU will sense HIS presence. Trust me, JOY will follow.


Dear Jesus,

This AM there truly is joy in Your presence. Amen
