Unconditional love is the eternal key that unlocks your heart to experience true happiness. Happiness is an internal job, don’t be fooled by your emptiness because there’s so much more in life for you to be grateful for. God created mankind to live the abundant life—so why are you downcast in your spirit? Look around you there is so much to be happy about today. You were designed by the Potter to live your life with expectancy and enjoy the pleasures of His hands. Do not fall to the snares of the enemy and ignore your blessings and repay God with complaint after complaint because you are not satisfied with what you have or where you are now. Murmuring is a spirit of ungratefulness and that should not be found within you. Each time you complain you are spitting in God’s face because you are telling Him that He is not doing anything for you. Instead of dwelling on the inability or the challenges that keeps knocking on your door focus on the possibilities that lies in God. Stop being a complainer by finding fault in everything including your spouse or your job, your health or even your wealth. Right now your spouse may not be where you expected that they would be but look for the positive attributes and affirm them, then pray about everything else. Start rejoicing for the things that you do have in your life and the things that God is yet to bring forth. The good book says, “I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.” (Ecclesiastes 3:12-13) Your happiness is wrapped up in God’s possibility but your mindset can block it and delay it’s manifestation in your life.
Regardless of your insecurities, frailties and sins God loves you and His greatest desire for you is that you enjoy life and have true happiness right where you are. You are a good and perfect gift from God. He looks beyond your mistakes and stretches forth His hand to bless you anyway, to heal you anyway, to protect you anyway, to open doors to you anyway, to launch your career anyway and to hide you from your enemies anyway. Why, one might ask? God is the author and finisher of ‘TRUE HAPPPINESS’—money can’t buy it, no man can bribe Him for it and you will not be denied of it so reach for it and God will give it. If you are feeling weak, sad, or depressed you can find refuge, strength and joy in the Lord. The Psalmist David said, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song I will praise him.” (Psalm 28:7) What ever you are faced with at this time it was not sent to pull you down or kill you but rather to build your character and integrity in God and the things that concerns Him.
True happiness does not lie in the accolades or money, its not clubbing and drinking, its not shopping or being tantalized by another person—it is being engulfed in God and allowing Him to be the Composer of your daily lyrics and the Director of your daily script. Some people are comfortable with what money can do for them but that does not mean they have happiness on the inside. It’s all good to make lavish purchases and feel good about it in that moment. However, after that rush reality strikes and you realize that you can afford to buy anything your heart desires but you are still feeling like there is something missing from my life. That missing piece of the puzzle is a simple word known as happiness. Happiness comes from within and developing a relationship with God—man plants a seed in your life but God gives the increase and cause it to create happiness in your personal space. Psalm 89:15–16 says, “How happy are the people who know the sound of joy! They walk in the light of Your face, O Lord. They are full of joy in Your name all day long. And by being right with You, they are honored.”
Take the time to create memories of happiness with God in the midst and do not take the gift of life for granted. Life is just too short to live and not know happiness or experience the joy that resonates from the inside out. You are God’s most treasured gems allow your precious stones to exhume with brilliant lights that shines bright and leave imprints on the hearts of others. Happiness leads you directly in to the world of greatness and achieving greatness come from the Chief Architect Himself. Change your attitude and start living the way God created you to live with a little laughter in your heart. Laughter is medicine for the soul so do it more often and it will eventually become apart of you. Build an empire of happiness not just for yourself but for others to enter in and become one with God’s blessed gift to man.
“I will have much joy in the Lord. My soul will have joy in my God, for He has clothed me with the clothes of His saving power. He has put around me a coat of what is right and good, as a man at his own wedding wears something special on his head, and as a bride makes herself beautiful with stones of great worth.” Isaiah 61:10
