True Happiness

But the godly are happy; they rejoice before God and are overcome with joy

Psalm 68:3

I want you to take a few minutes to answer this question….

What makes you happy and why?

The world tells us what is supposed to make us happy. We see it everyday on social media!! Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat. We discuss the latest things with our friends and family and whenever we fall short of these things we become sad. But what we fail to understand is that most things of this world we think will make us happy are often just distractions that lead us away from true, lasting happiness; a relationship with Jesus.

True happiness comes from within – not from the stuff or the circumstances in our lives. True happiness is only found in Jesus Christ. Nothing gives you an everlasting joy and happiness like Jesus Christ. Many people try to substitute Christ for other things to make them happy but like you know this only lasts for a moment.

When we know, I mean know Jesus then we must know how much we are loved, protected, and cared for  and no matter what is happening around us we are covered.

Jesus gives happiness that cannot be lost or taken away from us when we truly love and trust Him. This is holiness before God.

True happiness is living His way of life.

MEDITATION

“There is only one place to look for true happiness—from the God who created us! The Bible was written to reveal an entire way of life designed to bring peace of mind and happiness.”
