You can find true happiness without any stress. If there is anything like the greatest secret to happiness, it would be “fear the Lord and worship him in truth. You are responsible for your feelings and how you handle them
It’s not by surprise that billions of people living in this world are looking for true happiness in life. This world is gradually becoming a place of discomfort for a lot of people. There are too many problems in marriages, finances, health, social lives and so forth. These challenges also increase depression making people feel down, hopeless and fearful of the future. But hey, there is something that can help you overcome all these challenges.
What Is True Happiness?
In simple terms, true happiness is when you have peace of mind with a contented life void of fear and anxieties.
In this post, I would like you to know that being a happy person does not cost anything. The cost of happiness is something everyone can afford; It is $0. That is why even the poorest man on earth could be the happiest person today. The choice is always yours. And I believe you have already heard the phrase “happiness is a choice.” It is very true.
Again, experts say it is a state of mind. You must definitely agree with this one also. Because if you can clear your mind from fear, depression, anxiety and all the negative emotions, and seek things that are positive, inspiring and worthy; your system will release those happy hormones into your bloodstream.
This is because you need no one to make you smile before you feel happy. It is a personal feeling and only you can cope with it. Any third-party thing that would bring happiness into your life is just a compliment. The real thing begins with you.
When your heart, mind, and soul are at peace, you would always feel happy, content, and hopeful about the future.
So search through these natures of yourself and know if you are really at peace with yourself.
True happiness quote from the bible:
“A joyful heart makes the face cheerful, but by a painful heart the spirit is broken.”(Psalms 15:13).
God can give you true happiness if you get closer to Him. The Bible has several verses about happiness with divine instructions on how to enjoy them without and fear.
Where Does Your Happiness Come From?
Where does true happiness in life come from?
It comes from how you envision yourself and how well you assess your current life. What you allow to stay within your mind, spirit and soul could influence your happiness.
It doesn’t come from money or riches. Bear in mind that, spirituality plays a major role in making people happy. From a Christian perspective, you must acknowledge God as your true source of life, hope, success, happiness and salvation. It is not from anything nor any man but God. Yes!, true happiness comes from the Lord.
There are many other things that also bring joy into the lives of people. You may get happiness from your relationships, jobs, friends, money and wealth, etc. All these sources of happiness wouldn’t be available for everyone. But God’s gift of happiness is available and free of charge all the time.
In a world of 7 billion people, many have pierced themselves with grief trying to find true joy by chasing material wealth. Money and wealth don’t satisfy the soul.
How To Find True Happiness In Life
To find true happiness in life, confide in God, put Him first in everything you do and He will always make you happy. Even if you are the poorest man on earth, you will still feel happy.
Throughout the whole week, you must make up your mind to stay happy and positive. It is a choice and a state of mind. Anyone can choose to have it.
If you feel stressed by your work, relationship, goals, etc, then learn to start the week with Monday happiness strategy. This will help you feel good throughout the whole week.
True happiness in God doesn’t cost a dime. Look around, many have amassed wealth for themselves but they never feel happy. Why? Because they have ignored the Creator of heaven and earth. They rather believe in their wealth which doesn’t satisfy their weary souls.
In recent years, the richest man in Singapore, Philip Ng Chee Tat said:
“Living without Jesus and focusing on material things is a sad way to live.”
Philip Ng Chee Tat being a billionaire realized that to be truly happy is to find Jesus Christ. This is a very good example for everyone.
He said having Jesus in your life is more important than having a lot of money. This is the spiritual aspect of life with God that is very essential for being a happy person.
“Many say, “Who can show us anything good?” Smile upon us, LORD!. You make me happier than those who have abundant grain and wine.”(Psalms 4:6-7).
Wealth without God is useless, just how useless it is to live without God. If you truly want to be happy do these:
• First acknowledge that God is the giver of life, as well as everything good for mankind.
” Taste and see that the LORD is good! How blessed is the one who takes shelter in him!.”(Psalms 34:8).
• Seek God, and he will bless you with genuine happiness. He wouldn’t hold back richness (with a peaceful mind) from you when you deserve it according to His will. Remember what he said: “The Gold and Silver Are Mine“.
“Those who look to Him for help are happy; their faces are not ashamed.”(Psalms 34:5).
• Put yourself into spiritual practices by worshiping God through prayers, fasting, meditation, reading of the Bible, random doing kindness, etc, All these will give you a kind of euphoric feelings with many blessings from the Lord.
How Does God Give True Happiness To His Children?
The wisest man ever to live received blessings of wealth and happiness from the Lord. After assessing all his wealth and riches, he realized true happiness doesn’t come from material wealth. The fear of the Lord holds the truth.
Remember that, wealth is just a complement to happiness. That is why the poor also feels happy although he has no money.
God gives the free gift of life, air, sunlight, etc. to make you happy by enjoying the best of nature. (Psalms 92:4) So you must live and declare his love and greatness.
