Beloved, what is it that you are happy about? And what is it that makes you happy?
Is it your beautiful wife and God?
Is it your handsome husband and God?
Is it your home and God?
Is it your nice look and God?
Is it your child(ren) and God?
Is it your good job and God?
Is it the money in your bank account and God?
Is it your ambition for the future and God?
Sincerely search your heart, perhaps you may discover why the happiness is often short-lived.
We multiply in resources, we increase in goods, we delight in the works of our hands, we strive, we labour, and still we remain anxious and unfulfilled. SELAH
Why? It’s because we are created in the image of God, and nothing SHORT OF GOD WILL SATISFY MAN.
We slide and stumble in the euphoria of ‘material things and God’ — guised under the self-proclaimed assertion: “atleast I have included God in all that I have and all that I do”.
We might have given justifiable answers to earthly barrage of questions on happiness. What about the echoes of Heaven’s questions in our heart, that we have refused give attention to?
#Where are you storing up your treasures?
#What is of utmost importance to you?
#Have you trophies to lay at Jesus feet, when the Saviour calls?
“When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?” Ecclesiastes 5:11 KJV
“Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven”. Proverbs 23:5 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. Matthew 6:33 KJV
There is no fulfillment in ‘all things plus God’; but in ‘God plus His righteousness’: for everything that you need is in God of all things.
#Enduring happiness lies in a fulfilled life#
#Nothing short of God gives fulfilment#
