Anchoring Truths from God's Word

Are You Happy?

The Psalmist says in this verse that we as Christians should be happy because of God and what He has done in our life. God's people should be the happiest because of salvation and all that God does for us. We should always be walking around with a smile on our face because of the joy that is overflowing our hearts. There may be times when we may not feel like being happy because of what may be going on in our life. However, we shouldn't just be happy when we feel like it because happiness is not about feelings. It's about having the right focus that will cause true happiness, and the right focus is Jesus Christ and not ourselves. When we focus on ourselves and all the problems, trails, and heartaches in our life, then we won't be happy, and we will be like most of the world- unhappy, not smile, and a heavy countenance. When we focus on Christ and what He's already done in our life, and we start praising and thanking Him for the blessing, then that's when we have true happiness. So, share this happiness with others because the world can't give happiness. True happiness is found only through Jesus Christ.
