HOW TO BE TRULY HAPPY
TEXT: PSALM 146:1-10
MEMORY VERSE: “Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God” (PSALM 146:5).
Many people in life run from pillar to post in search of help and happiness due to the overwhelming challenges of life. Sadly, their search for happiness in this sinful world that could be likened to a sea of gloom has led many of them into regrets and pains.
Take note that academic success, hobbies, social groups, friends, and family members cannot give you true happiness. King Solomon had more wisdom, money, opportunities and pleasure than anyone could imagine, yet, his conclusion was: “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
To be truly happy as a youth, choose and chase godliness by walking with God; and following His steps and commandments (Joshua 1:8).
When your heart is filled with sin, there will be no room for God; and without God, we are destined for unhappiness and condemnation. Create space for God in your heart through genuine repentance for your sins. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour; and He will grant you true happiness in this life and in eternity.
QUOTE: Choose and chase godliness.
CHALLENGE: Seek help from God.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, take over my life and grant me happiness.
