5Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
11 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.
In the presence of God all of the things that are not of God must leave. In God’s presence there is love, perfect peace, mercy, forgiveness, healing, instruction, security, and there is rest. God wants us to know just like a child comes to his earthly father with his joys, sorrows, concerns, etc. we can come to Him (our Heavenly Father) with everything. God wants to hear from you, He wants to talk to you and He wants you to talk to Him. To build a relationship there has to be communication, God already knows but He wants to hear from you. You’ll find that you’ll draw closer to God when you talk to Him and allow Him to talk to you. In the presence of God there is rest from the burdens that we attempt to carry, the ones we so stubbornly hold onto that we need to hand over to God.
