“You will show me the way off life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.” Psalm 16: 11 NLT
There is a pathway leading to a treasure chest of delights - overflowing with peace, joy, and contentment. Also, in this treasure chest is a book. This book contains a truth about a peaceful relationship. This morning, are you looking for peace? Has the bubble of your peaceful illusion burst? There is a pathway leading to your special place.
Have you found this pathway to your serene, secure hide away? A place to exchange your tension headaches and tight shoulders for a relaxing get away. Do you disparately need this peace? This peace doesn’t come in a bottle nor a pill, but from one relationship. Come! Come find your pathway to your secret getaway. Your peace longs to embrace the tension and disappointments.
Take your example from Jesus, who often got away from the pressures of training, teaching and healing to listen in his secluded getaway. In that place, Christ exchanged the tension for the joy of fatherly fellowship and direction. In the stillness, the voice of heaven encouraged, enlightened, and enjoyed His son. This morning, are you longing for this type of peaceful relationship? Then go find your secret place known only to you and God? In your place, your soul learns about quietness. The quietness in your place, blocks out the cares, joys, disappointments, and worldly delights. You open the treasure chest of God’s word and out pops the joy, peace, and contentment. Embracing the joyful pleasures, you exchange your worldly cares for a heavenly fellowship.
Your peace and heavenly pleasures wait for you to find and enjoy in your secret place. So, go now and find your serene, secure, hide away and embrace all the heavenly pleasures. Truly, no cruise or cabin by the lake can replace your serene special place.
