Please know that there is true happiness only in the Lord. Nothing else can give us the joy that lasts. Only God holds what is pure and true. Seek after Him, and you will be blessed. The happiness you know now is well indeed if it is found in the Bible or from God. We are finding out so many great things in science but those things do not discount God in any way. No matter what people will say about their findings, it only confirms the existence of God and a creator. 2“The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.” We can know this to be true by reading scripture. When God’s Word is in our hearts, His truth is made known, all around us. We can even know what is false, by what the Word of God says about certain things. For instance, many people are confused, now a days, about marriage and relationships. 1If they were reading the Bible, it would be clear that from the beginning, God created man to be with one wife. He also gave man a woman and not another man and vice versa. The polygamy and homosexual teachings are not instituted from God. These wicked passions of the flesh were only brought in by human flesh and not the Spirit of God. 2“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom” in God, 2“and the man that getteth understanding.” Following what God teaches will help us know what is right.
The knowledge we gain from God is worth every penny. “For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.” There is nothing on earth that is better suited for our lives than the wisdom that God can give us. This knowledge will last for all eternity. The times we have to go to God in His Word and prayer is a blessing. It is time worth spent for our salvation. It surely is awesome that the Lord Jesus has opened up the doors of heaven, for us to gain wisdom. We are all welcomed into His presence, if we but desire to believe and follow Jesus. Then, can the Holy Spirit come and open up our eyes to the truthfulness of God. Sure, it may take a life change to devote ourselves to Him, but this is necessary. Know that to leave behind what is wrong and go after what is right, is what God requires. Only by so doing His will, will you be at peace. Will you now fulfill your life for Christ, and also 2“keep sound wisdom and discretion.” Come to the Lord often, that your understanding may be of Him and not yourself. When you are directed by the God of the heavens, it will 2“be life unto thy soul.” You will understand God’s grace much better than ever before. So walk in the ways of the Lord, 2“and thy foot shall not stumble.” Even when you go to sleep at night, you 2“shalt not be afraid”, for it will be sweet, having been made secure in Christ Jesus.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, will You speak to our minds and hearts? Give us wisdom this hour. We seek You above all things. We know that there is so much deception in this life and we need Your guidance. Help us not be led astray. I know Your wisdom and knowledge is meaningful to the soul. There is happiness and joy that comes from it, for it is from above. All things good come from Your presence. It is a blessing to know what is right and be led by You, my king. Everyone else in life has been untrue to me. They have led me into dark paths. But You Lord, are the giver of all things good. When You make a way in my life, I am joyful and happy. Though Your love changes me from the inside out, I know that it is for my good. It always brings my mind at peace. Thank You for coming into my life. There is nothing like Your love. I love You. Amen.
