You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)
The goodness of God is found in His Presence. There is a journey involved and in any travel there is cost. It will take some time, energy and resources to achieve the fullness of God. It may require giving God everything to have His All. The Lord promises those things that you gave up for Him will be replaced with the fullness of His Joy and His Pleasures forevermore. God’s Joy and Pleasure do not demand the high price that the world’s does. It will not leave you empty but may require emptiness and brokenness to attain it. Don’t give up! It is totally worth the wait and the pain to have all that God is and has just for you. God desires a relationship with you and promises never to leave you empty but will always return your offering with favor and fullness. Failure to thrive is a dangerous health condition in our natural body but failure to thrive in the spirit has an eternal price. God is asking you to return your void vessel of a life to Him and allow Him to fill you to overflowing. There will be a price. But in the end, it will not compare to the prize. Let go of your hurt and doubt today. Empty yourself at the feet of Jesus, He has something wonderful for you.
