How to Succeed, Learn to be Happy!
John 13:17 “If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.” Holiness brings happiness, but sin does not. Holiness = the whole of Christ in the whole of life. Holiness must be lived and not talked about.
Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the Lord, it makes rich, and He adds no sorrow.” The only thing that adds no sorrow is the blessing of the Lord. The “law of the harvest”: “What a man sows, that he shall also reap” Galatians 6:7. Being sinful will destroy your chance of happiness in life.
Psalm 29:2 “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” Holiness is a beautiful thing when you fully understand and practice it. Job 42:10 “The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” Job 42:12 “The Lord blessed the latter end of Job’s life more than his beginning…..”
Helping others brings happiness, but selfishness never can. Happiness does not come by getting, it comes by forgetting yourself and living for others. Job got back twice what he lost because he forgot about himself and prayed for his friends. God blesses you for one reason: to make you a blessing to others. Be a clearinghouse and not a warehouse. It is better to give than to receive. God blesses you when you are a blessing to others.
Hope brings happiness, but skepticism never can. Jesus is coming again! Don’t let the doubters dull your sense of hope. The certainty of Christ’s soon return sets you free to hope, to rejoice in the worst of circumstances, and to live with purpose. For God’s redeemed people, the best is yet to come.
