Happy, Happy, Happy

161217Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the LORD their God,
who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them;
who keeps faith forever;
who executes justice for the oppressed;
who gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets the prisoners free;
the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.
The LORD watches over the strangers;
he upholds the orphan and the widow,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
The LORD will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the LORD!
(Psalm 146:5-10, NRSV)

We can be happy even in dark valleys because our help comes from God and our hope is in Him!

He will set us free, lift us up, watch over us and be our shelter.

So trust in Him and allow that to make you happy.

I will dwell

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD my whole life long. (Psalm 23, NRSV)

It is amazing the lengths God will go for us.

He will provide everything we need.

He will ease us so we can rest.

He will provide waters for us to drink.

He will restore us to the way He created us to be.

He will guide us down the paths that are best for us.

When we walk through the paths that lead to suffering, mourning, walking through darkness, He will lead us.

We do not have to fear evil, or anything because He will take care of us.

We will have more than enough so that we can give to others.

And best of all we will dwell with Him forever!
