“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” (Psalm 16:11)
Real and lasting joy is found in the presence of the Lord. We see this in play through the a story of King David found in 1 Chronicles 16.
Peace? Did Jesus come to bring us the absence of conflict or something else?
Matthew 10:34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."
Jesus came to uproot the things (priorities, family, agendas...) that we put in the place only the Sovereign God can hold.
