Hope to “stumble on” happiness?
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6
What are most people in the world doing? Seeking happiness. If you seek happiness you’ll never find it. But if you get right with God, blessedness will find you.
Are you still searching for happiness? Let me tell you a secret: Happiness is something you stumble over on your way to serving Jesus.
When you are serving the Lord Jesus Christ, happiness is the byproduct of righteousness. People who are trying to be happy are focusing their energy at the wrong target. If you will seek after righteousness, then you will be happy.
What you need is to drink of the Spirit.
What you need is to feed on the Word of God.
The deepest need of your heart will be met only in Jesus.
Ask the Lord to fill you with His presence, to fulfill the deepest need of your heart in Him and Him alone. Now trust Him to do it.
