"Eternal pleasures!!!"

In Psalms 16:11 we read - You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand."

Pleasure refers to the feeling of being pleased and happy - it is a positive feeling. Pleasure and pain are antonyms to each other. God wants to encourage us by reminding us of the pleasures in Christian life. Christian life is a holy life. Holy life is not a dull, boring, painful life. Holy life really has joy, adventure, and pleasures. We do not need to get to heaven ENDURING Christian life all the time. There is happiness, joy, fun in Christian life and we can "feel like heaven" on earth. Our life with Jesus is filled with surprises and happiness. Every time God teaches us from HIS TREASURES, there is immense pleasure. Every time we worship God and do the Will of the Father, we are filled with divine joy, happiness, and hope. Every time He pours out His goodness in our lives and every time we come to know of Him more, there is unspeakable happiness.

God wants us to enjoy the pleasures that last forever and not the pleasures of sin, which is a "negative pleasure" that is short-lived and results in death (of the soul). Hebrews 11:25. There are "eternal pleasures" at His right hand. God's right hand is majestic, displays awesome deeds. There is so much pleasure when we meditate on His mighty deeds and wonders that He has done in our lives.

In Psalms 77: 12-14 - we read -
"I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.
Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God?
You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples."

So, let us be encouraged today to look forward to happier days as we have a grand future in Jesus and our best days are yet to come!! God Bless You!!!
