There is no better place to be than in the presence of the Lord. In Psalm 16:8-9, David talks about the strength that comes from being in His presence. When we keep our eyes focused on the Lord, when we spend time in His presence, we can find strength. When He is by our side, there is nothing that can shake us. He is our rock and our salvation. He is our defense and because of that, there is nothing that can move us (Psalm 62:2).
When we take the time to be in His presence, we feel a sense of gladness in our hearts. The result is that we desire to speak His praise and rejoice in His greatness. We feel the security that comes from knowing that in Him there is refuge, in Him there is strength. And that security is something we feel in our hearts, our minds, and our souls.
