Where can we find true happiness? In the Bible, Jesus shared with us the great formula for happiness. By having a pure heart and a good attitude in a difficult situation, we open the door for God’s Presence to enter our lives. In God, we can experience a deep sense of happiness that nothing or nobody can ever give us.
“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” -Psalm 51:10
There are times in our lives when our money, strength, talent or loved ones can’t give us what we need. If you find yourself in a place where what you need is impossible to achieve, that’s when you will realize that JESUS is all you need. Seek Him. No problem is too hard for Him.
[ "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us..."-Ephesians 3:20 ]
If your life is filled with worry, start refilling it with the reality of what you have in the Lord. Jesus said, “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it! So that I can give glory to My Father.” When we begin to perceive the glory of the Lord, anything is possible!
[ "Everything is possible for him who believes." - Mark 9:23 ]
Tough trials makes life complicated for us. But God has promised that He will guide us along the best pathway for our life. He is always there to advice and watch over us. As a Christian, being able to hear that “still, small voice” of God’s Spirit in times of trouble is our best weapon to win the battles that come our way each day.
[ "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you."- John 14:26 ]
Even before God made the world, He loved us & chose us in Christ to be without fault in His eyes (Ephesians 1:4). The enemy will always try put you down and tell you that you can’t make it, but if you know what you have in the Lord, you will see yourself doing the impossible! By faith, believe & embrace this comforting evidence of His unconditional love for us.
[ "...let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." -Romans 12:2 ]
In the same way earthly parents wants their children to have more than enough, our Father in Heaven too, wants us to enjoy His supernatural provision. Times are tough nowadays, but in the glory of our God, nothing is impossible! If you have a problem today that can’t be solved in the natural, it’s time for you to focus on the supernatural. It’s already given to you.
["I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." -John 16:33]
We all know that nothing is permanent in this world. Sad to say, sometimes the one who “supposedly” love you the most will abuse your heart the most. Your heart maybe hurting today but God wants you to know that, there is happiness on the other side of goodbye. When God removes something from our lives, it’s not because He’s trying to take away something good. It’s because He’s trying to make room for something better.
“Now remain in My love, I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”-John 15:11
Joy produces strength. That’s why the enemy will do everything to steal it, because he knows that once we lose our joy – we lose our strength. If we want to have the kind of joy that stays no matter what happens, we need to make a conscious decision to focus each day on our personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. His presence in our lives will be our never ending source of joy that no one can take away from us.
“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10
Sometimes, we go through things in life that we don’t fully understand. Today, God wants to remind us that, where we are right now is part of where we are going. Every experience has a purpose. The enemy will tempt us to give up and question God’s love, but don’t listen to his lies. Instead of feeling down, declare good things in your life! In the end, you will see that all things will work out for your own good because of God’s great love for you.
“O Lord my God, Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.” -Psalm 40:5
Are you facing some battles today? How often do you experience “quietness” in your life? In the hustle and bustle of life, we still need quiet moments to be alone with God because our victory is in Him.
["Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." -Mark 11:24]
