The Source of Happiness
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV)
C. S. Lewis wrote, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
Are you content? Are you a happy person? Or, are you thinking, “If I just had this, I would be happy”? You won’t find happiness in the things this world offers. It won’t be found in possessions. It won’t be found in accomplishments. It won’t be found in fame. It won’t be found in any external thing. Happiness does not come from seeking it but from seeking God. Happiness will be found in a relationship with God.
Happiness is not about what I have; it’s about who has me. It’s the relationship I have with God that brings the ultimate contentment. As David wrote in Psalm 23, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (verse 1 NKJV). When the Lord is your shepherd, you can find perfect contentment.
Tell me what you think you need, and I will tell you what you really want. What you’re looking for in life is a relationship with God. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your life to be your Savior and your Lord? Jesus is ready to forgive you, but you must ask Him to come into your life. The day you do that, your questions will be answered. The day you do that, you will find the contentment you’ve been seeking in life. The day you do that is the day you literally will change your eternal address from Hell to Heaven.
