This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Psalm 16:11. This verse says that our Heavenly Father will make known to us the path of life, and that He will fills us with joy in His presence, and eternal pleasures at His right hand.
Do you feel depressed? Discouraged? Defeated? Are you in need of joy? Spend some time in God’s presence. Let Him reveal to you just how much He loves you, and just how amazing His grace really is. Begin to understand that you are valued, treasured, and cherished by Him, as His beloved child. Know that the One who created the universe knows and cares for you personally as your Heavenly Father, and let that knowledge bring you joy beyond what you’ve ever experienced before.
God loves you. He knows what you are feeling, and He doesn’t want you to be filled with defeat, depression, discouragement, anxiety, fear, or worry. He wants you to experience the fullness of joy that his found in His presence. Draw near to Him, and allow Him to fill you with His surpassing joy!
