Happiness ... Where is It?
It’s a question that often appears in the media and on TV shows ... does happiness exist? If so, then ... where is it?
The Bible speaks to us about happiness in at least two passages: Psalm 1:1 and Matthew 5:1-12. Let’s dive into these scriptures …
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.” (the Bible, Psalm 1:1)
This psalm begins with the word “blessed,” which is also the word Jesus uses in His first sermon, the “Sermon on the Mount.” (see the Bible, Matthew 5:1-12) Did you know that both of these words, the Hebrew esher and the Greek makarios, mean “happy”?
It’s in the center of God’s will that you be happy. Everything He does and tells you in His Word is intended to make you happy, truly happy. Yes!
And this is a testimony to your friends and all those around you. When they see you glowing, radiant, despite the circumstances, it speaks to them ... causes them to wonder and think, “This person has something different ... what is it?”
When you walk in God’s paths, in agreement with His Word, you shine with His light. You diffuse His peace. And it’s a powerful testimony! Your life speaks of God’s marvelous works. Happiness is living with Him day by day. Happiness is walking in His footprints.
Be happy, and allow it to emanate from you to others!
Where is happiness? He is inside of you, and His name is Jesus!
