No wonder my heart is filled with joy, and my mouth shouts his praises! My body rests in safety.
David found the secret to joy. True joy is far deeper than happiness; we can feel joy even in spite of our deepest troubles. Happiness is temporary because it is based on external circumstances, but joy is lasting because it is based on God's presence within us. As we contemplate his daily presence, we will find contentment. As we understand the future he has for us, we can experience joy.
Celebrate God's presence in you!
