Happy all the Time

25 Jan

God’s Word:  Matthew 5:8  “You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart put right.  Then you can see God in the outside world.” 

Jesus’ Message to Me: (My interpretation of what Jesus is saying in this verse.)

Everyone longs for enduring happiness.  You turn life into the pursuit of happiness by trying first this, then that, pooh_bear_and_piglet-1139running here, running there, experimenting with this and that, always searching.  Happiness always seems to be just around the corner.  But happiness is not “out there somewhere.”  Happiness, true happiness, is the result of getting your inside world, your mind and your heart—put right with God.

Happiness can be yours in any circumstance. Happiness does not depend upon what is happening in your outside world.  It is a matter of who is on the throne of your heart.  Self on the throne is always searching for that elusive happiness.  I stand at the door of your heart and knock.  To allow Me to enter will be the beginning of the end of your search for happiness.

Real and lasting happiness comes from the inside out.  You can tell who is on the throne of your heart by the deeds and actions of your life.  The inward always shows up in the outward.  When you have truly invited Me into your heart it is evidenced by your treatment of others and how you spend your time and your money.  The eyes of your heart are opened to see God when you look at His creation and seek to be a blessing instead of being blest.

Jesus’ Question for Me: How about your heart, is it right with God

Jesus’ Promise to Me: I have come to give you life and life more abundant.  Happiness is the gift of a life put right with God.

My Prayer to God:

I praise You for Your amazing happiness that gives me such peace.

I am sorry for wasting even one moment of my life in worrying.

Thank You for Your patient forgiveness and never forsaking me.

Help me to be grateful for Your happiness that comes with sunshine or rain, no matter the weather or circumstances of life, Your happiness never leaves us.
