Find me on the Youversion Bible app. Excerpt from First15 Lent Devotional:
“David wrote in Psalm 16:11, “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” We were designed to seek enjoyment in God. We were made to delight ourselves in his goodness, his provision, the wonders of his creation, and the simplicity of his unconditional love.
So important—so powerful—is finding enjoyment in God that it has the power to set us free from sin. You see, when we don’t seek enjoyment in God we will naturally seek it in the world. We can’t live our lives apart from pleasure. We aren’t created to live without happiness, love, passion, and joy.
Most of us have been indoctrinated to the idea that we sin because we aren't controlled enough. We believe that if we could just get rid of a need for pleasure or enjoyment, we’d be free. Self-control is absolutely crucial in experiencing freedom from sin, but we will never be able rid ourselves of our immense need to enjoy life. We will never stop seeking pleasure because we were made to be satisfied in the riches of God’s love.”
