If you have made it so far as to visit our site, chances are that you have discovered what our blog name is, or what we call ourselves, at least. Our site name entails what we have done, we have found ourselves in Christ. We have found who we are. We know that life is not meaningless and that our ultimate goal should be to follow Jesus and His commandments. But maybe you haven’t found what your life means. What if you just live every day to get through it and wait for the weekend to roll around (if this is in fact the case, congratulations, because today is Friday!)?
Before I continue, I want to make it obvious that I am definitely not going to give some great ideas on how to live your life without God, because that is just not possible. To live a successful life (to be happy and prosperous), you must have God in the focus of your life. He might not choose to bless you more than He blesses other people, but you will find that you are much happier.
For the rest of this post, I will just let the Bible speak what I want to say. Take time to view these verses carefully:
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.” -Philippians 4:4
““Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” -Isaiah 12:2
“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom” -Proverbs 3:13
“I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.” – Psalm 40:8
“Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.” – Proverbs 16:20
I hope you see what I mean with this post. It is so painfully obvious to me, and I don’t know if I’m making it clear or not, that happiness and joy comes from God. Period. If He sees it fit, He will bless you. Yes, there will be trials and persecutions, but you will be happy, because, as that last verse said, “Blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.”
I leave you with one question, and please be honest: What are you really trusting in? Who are you found in? Who are you found in?
