“In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

“Then I … saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2 [See also verses 3, 4, 10, and 12.]

O my dear Savior, look upon me in mercy. You see what earthly desires and unmortified tempers are yet found in me. And though I cry unto You daily, my enemies still prevail over me. Yet You are almighty to save and have promised to cast out none that come unto You. Let me, then, experience the power of Your grace in raising me up to more newness of life, in:

  • stirring up prayer
  • strengthening faith
  • creating hungering after righteousness
  • prompting thirsting after God
  • bestowing a right heavenly mind upon me — 

that my soul may be as a bride prepared and adorned for her husband.

Give me also a frequent taste below of those pleasures which are at Your right hand forevermore, that my heart may be kept eagerly looking for Your coming. O to be daily fitting us for the inheritance of the saints in light! May my eye, my heart, and my hopes be there, because Jesus is there; and it is the sight of Him and the enjoyment of Him that will be the cream of all our pleasures. No heaven without Jesus, and no hell with Him. Happy is the soul that can with confidence say, “Jesus is mine, and I am His.” Holy Spirit, witness to my heart that I am His!
