True Meaning and Happiness

Yerkes_08Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

What we have been observing lately is that people in today’s time are getting more and more desperate in seeking ‘happiness’ and meaning.  This is why most of the things people do now are ‘spiritualized’;  we have yoga, new age movements, cults, mind control practices, even perversions of hypnosis and meditational practices sprouting up from everywhere.  Nothing seems to satisfy us anymore.  Half a century ago, people were well contented and ‘happy’ by just enjoying the food on their plates with their family.  They didn’t have satellite T.V.’s, smart phones, tablets or even the internet.  Some people have experimented enough in their pursuit of happiness and meaning that they actually discovered new forms of behavioral addictions!  People try to fools themselves by putting up the illusion of happiness in casinos, in abusive sexual practices, and in abusive intake of substances.  I have a small note for those people: They are called addictions because they cannot satisfy you!  They cannot fulfill the true desires of your heart. What addictions simply do is make you look at something attractive and pleasurable at the front while it steals your life from behind.  Nothing man-made can satisfy what is from heaven; our spirit.  Our spiritual needs of happiness and meaning can only be fulfilled by the things of heaven.

Delight yourself in The LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart.  THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.  These are Holy things that are way beyond our fleshly desires.  When Abraham tithed to God, God told Abraham: “I AM YOUR EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD” (Genesis 15:1). By this, God meant that Abraham is getting the greatest reward in all creation and that is having the Creator inside him!  When you have the Creator inside you, you have everything!  You may ask, when I have everything, does that include fleshly and worldly stuff?  Well, as much as the greater includes the lesser blessings, my only answer is: Does the life of king Solomon answer your question?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Let us open our hearts and let Jesus in our lives.  Because of what He did on the cross, this reward of having God in us is now given to us as a gift and all we have to do is to receive it.  If you have Jesus Christ in you, you WILL have all the desires of your heart!

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

-Jesus Christ, Matthew 6:33
