FINDING THE PLEASURES OF LIFE

Everyone wants to enjoy the pleasures of life.  Psalms 16:11 teaches us that at the right hand of God or better said in His presence are pleasures forever more.  When we put or sometimes push our way into God presence by praising and worshipping Him, we will begin to enjoy the wealth of the pleasures that He has for us.  Here are a few:
1. The Wealth Of The Pleasure of Being Rescued From Calamity
Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all nations that forget God.
(wicked=Hebrew=rashah=pronounced raw-shaw=meaning the wrong-guilty-ungodly)
Romans 6:23 For the wages (the payday) of sin (for the wicked) is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

2. The Wealth Of The Pleasure of Being Redeemed from the Curse
Gal 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law being made a curse for us (to redeem us from death and separation from God by receiving Him as our Lord and Saviour and establishing a relationship with God); for it is written cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.

3. The Wealth Of The Pleasure of Being Released from Condemnation
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

4. The Wealth Of The Pleasure of Being Raised Up In Correctness (or righteousness)
2-Cor 5:21 For He (God) hath made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
Eph 2:6 And (Jesus) hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in heavenly places

5. The Wealth Of The Pleasure of Being Rewarded for Consistency (or faithfulness)
Proverbs 28:20 A faithful (consistent) man (for God) shall abound with blessings.

Push yourself in the presence of God by praising and worshipping the Lord and enjoy the pleasures that He has for you.  Pastor Larry Doggett
