What makes you happy?
Is it things?
Is it the perfect job?
Is it a feeling you can’t explain?
Everyone has their on little list of things that will make them happy.
Should we even attempt to pursuit happiness?
Just as positive thinking will lead to a lot of your success
Being happy leads to a lot of joyful times
But, we have to put it in perspective.
Proverbs 17:22 ESV
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
It’s not the things or people that will make me happy, but happiness myself doing and being who God has called me to be will lead me to have those things.
They will come.
If you believe and receive then you shall have.
Believing that you should have those things will only lead you to the pursuit of things.
Matthews 6:33 ESV
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
I just believe it’s a part of my thinking, believing, walking, talking, and loving.
These things shall be added unto me as I continue down the path of being who I’m called to be.
It’s like the fruit tree producing its best fruit
If it continues this way the rain will come
The pollen it needs will come.
The care it needs will come
And its willingness to be pruned will help it to produce more of its best fruit.
Then many years shall be added unto it.
We are the tree which God has planted, if we continue to produce good fruit.
John 15:2 ESV
Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
Then God shall take good care of all our needs.
There is no want for them who believe.
Walking by faith will help me produce good fruit, which will lead to me receiving the happiness I seek.
The happiness for us must be found first in doing and believing.
In our faith to get a favorable out come.
In our hands that sow good seed.
In our hearts that motivate us to do all that we can to help others.
If the Love of God is in us, then his Love will work through us to bring joy and happiness in others.
This in turn brings us the happiness we seek.
Measure what makes you happy by what makes God happy.
Then you shall find the answer to the pursuit of happiness.
Proverbs 3:13 KJB
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
All can be found as you continue to seek Him in his Word and add to your faith daily as you move into your destiny.
Psalms for Life II: “Get Motivated to Pursue Your Destiny”
