We all want to be glad, we want to be happy. However nothing in this world can truly give us true happiness, because everything in this world is temporal. Only Jesus can give us true happiness because:
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8
God is not limited and so happiness from God is not limited.
There are many people in this world that live their lives with great sadness, either because they don’t have Christ in them or they have yet to receive the joy that is from the Lord. When we are Christians we have the right to be able to receive joy. It is the fruit of the spirit. Many people don’t have this joy because of the way people treat them. People long to be loved by other people, they want others to be nice to them.
“There are many who say, “Who will show us any good?” LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.” – Psalm 4:6
Other people are humans just like us, they are not perfect, they still make mistakes. We can’t totally rely on others to be our happiness. However Jesus will never betray you, God will never leave you nor forsake you.
Thank you Lord that we can have full confidence in you, that you will never leave us nor forsake us. Lord I pray that as I live each day, may the joy that is from you radiate through my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
