In Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand are pleasures evermore Ps 16:11
Life is not easy life. Sorrow interferes and we have absence of joy in place of full joy. ‘Fullness of joy’: means perfection of joy, and the absence interference. This deals with our heartbreaks.
Fullness of joy is only found in Gods Presence, without Him there is no joy. “In thy presence is fullness of Joy”. Gods Presence is, the Triune God, Father, Son, and Spirit, one God.
In His presence there is always fullness of joy. God the Son is now the God/man, who took our human nature into union with His Person. This union is permanent, and will never be reversed. He will be visible to our human eyes, and He Himself looks forward to the time when He will have all His people with Him. “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory” (John 17:24). That will be fullness of joy.
We taste the joy of heaven now by meditating on the truths of the word of God, in Gods Word we get the atmosphere of Heaven. Charles Spurgeon wrote; a little faith will get us to heaven and a lot of faith will bring Heaven to us. Faith grows by consuming Gods Word.
