Issue 593 – Verse of the Week

May 4th – May 10th, 2023


You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.   Psalm 16:11


A poll published by The Wall Street Journal recently identified that only 12 percent of Americans would say they are “very happy.” Certainly, when you look around, there does not seem like much to be very happy about. But, their polling said that, of the very happy, “Belief in God is important to them, and two-thirds described themselves as very to moderately religious.” What does this tell you? God has promised that when you place your reliance on Him, and you cast your anxieties on Him, He will sustain you and you will experience the fullness of joy. If you don’t count yourself among the very happy people today, check the depth of your relationship with the Lord. When you are close to Him, you can go on your way rejoicing in spite of circumstances.
