Blessedness / Psalm 1

go to Thomas Watson's writing on this same subject

QUESTION 4: What is it to enjoy God?


ANSWER: To enjoy God, is to acquiesce or rest in God as the chief good, with complacency and delight. “Return unto thy rest, O my soul” (Ps. 116:7).


QUESTION 5: How is God enjoyed here?


ANSWER:
1. God is enjoyed here, when people settle themselves upon and cleave to the Lord by faith. “But cleave unto the Lord your God” (Josh. 23:8).

2. When they taste the Lord’s goodness, and delight themselves in the gracious presence and sensible manifestations of God’s special love for them. “O taste and see that the Lord is good” (Ps. 34:8). “Because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost” (Rom. 5:5).


QUESTION 6: How will God be enjoyed by His people hereafter?

ANSWER: God will be enjoyed hereafter by His people, when they shall be admitted into his glorious presence, have an immediate sight of His face, and full sense of His love in heaven, and there fully and eternally acquiesce and rest in Him with perfect and inconceivable delight and joy. “Now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face” (1 Cor. 13:12). “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God” (Heb. 4:9). “In thy presence there is fullness of joy, at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore” (Ps. 16:11).
