Living In Happiness

God commanded us to live in happiness. Worry, anxiety and depression are all the fiery darts of the evil one. It’s God’s plan for us to live in happiness and peace.

No matter what may be going on, in your life at the moment choose to be happy in Christ Jesus. The Bible tells us to count it all joy. In every situation you might find yourself in continue to rejoice in the Lord.

Consider it pure joy. My brothers whenever you face trails of many kinds. – James 1:2

Even when passing through tribulations God wants us to consider it pure joy. Joy is happiness expressed, this brings peace in our life which Jesus gave to us all, his special peace. The devil wants us to worry about life circumstances, been busy focusing on the  unnecessary pressures of life and all the negativities around thus it will steal our joy, love and happiness. When all this is stolen from us we become vulnerable to all his deceiving lies. However, God  is love and He gives us happiness to take along with us in order to conquer all.

A happy person is always calm and a calm person always hear from the Lord and does great things to himself and to those around him. I have never seen a happy person living in God’s word who will never conquer in this life, her path is upwards and forwards only. Choose to be happy.

If you have a cheerful heart, God will pour more into your life and he will use you to impart lives to the end of the world. Even if all around you is like blazing fire and the heat is too intense count it all joy and continue praising God, he will lift you up and you will not smell of smoke from the fire around you.

Anger is the opposite of being happy, staying angry will only destroy you the carrier and not the person you are angry at. Continue meditating on the promises of God in His word you will be happy at all times.

Therefore my heart is glad and my tounge rejoices my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave nor will you let your Holy one see decay. You have made known to me the path of life, you will fill me with joy in your presence with eternal pleasures at your right hand. – Psalms 16: 911
