What if God really does want you happy to a level that you could never imagine possible? What if God really does know you better than you know yourself? Perhaps happiness is just a realization away – care to find out?
God’s plan for your happiness (Part 2)
What is “godliness”?
What is “contentment”?
Please read 1 Timothy 6:6-9
Vs. 6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.”
“God Is Love” and that means that “godliness” is Being Love to All! We can never Be God and that is a Great thing – but He can and will create in us the aspect of His non-judgmental and non-condemning Love that He has for All His creations!
Learning to rest in that Love and learning the depth of that Love and the capacity of His Love is a journey toward righteousness that will last a lifetime! For some strange reason many in churches seem to think growing in righteousness is growing more exclusionary – but was Jesus ever exclusive?
This is the Be Happy Now lesson part 2 and the point is simple – we can never Be content as long as we think we have to have more! More money, more righteousness than what Jesus gave us, more power or MORE anything – it’s a trap!
Resting in the Here and Now is resting in the answer to these questions:
Is God Love?
Does God Love me just the way I am?
Is God All powerful?
If your answer to any of these questions is not “YES!” then you cannot find the happiness God has for you because you don’t know God!
If your answer is “YES” then you need to understand that God in His Great Love for you will never allow you to suffer unnecessarily and each and every nanosecond that you breathe you will have ALL you need!
God’s plan for your happiness starts with an understanding of His Amazing Love for you that is more complete than any human can imagine. His Love for you creates the happiness for you as you grasp that Everything in your life and every person in your life is exactly as it should be in each and every moment!
To Be Happy as God designed you to Be Happy – Be (in Christ you are no longer under the law – ALL your needs for a relationship with God Almighty have been met!), Here (Rest in the assurance that He has you in this place for a reason and He will show you that reason when it is time to see it), Now (this moment was designed by God just for you – so Love those around you, Be still and know that He is God and He is Crazy in Love with you!)
