Happy

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him. You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you. Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart! (Psalms 32:1-11 ESV)

What makes you happy?

Seems like that is really what we are worried about these days… We have cars that do the things we need them to and we have phones that do everything but drive our cars for us (wait it will happen…). We have instant everything. Like Mac and Cheese, as if macaroni and cheese are really hard to make to begin with…

We are searching for those things to fill the voids in our lives and make us happy. But will we ever find them?

No you will never find a single thing that will make you happy. You can not find an object that will keep you happy for ever. Cars and houses fall apart, and people will let us down, it happens we are human and we start to worry about our own happiness rather than the happiness of the other…

So can we be happy?

YES!!!

Psalm 32 tells us Happy is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Happy is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. So if God has forgiven you you are happy! You are happy when you follow Him and live the life He has called you to.

Does that mean that you have the latest devices and gadgets? No…

Does that mean that everything is perfect in your life? No…

But you will be happy when you follow after God and the life He has planned for you.

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
