Perfect Joy and Happiness

There is an end to all physical achievement and contentment. There is a point of happiness that just evades you. Contentment only lasts for a while and then people go seek for some more. If we are seeking for contentment and happiness in this world and from other people then we will always be disappointed. People will always let you down. You will come to point where your contentment fails you, when your achievement does not make you happy any more, when you have climbed the highest mountain, when you have achieved the highest achievement that you possibly could, then you will still feel incomplete because there is a part in us that only God can fill. God who made us is the only One who can give us peace and happiness.
Our happiness does not depend on our relationship with other people or our possessions or what we can achieve in life. There is a peace and a happiness that only God can give us even though we have nothing else in this world, no other physical things and unless we come to Jesus and truly find Him and find our happiness in Him we will never be content.
The prophet Habakkuk wrote in Habakkuk 3:17-19 “Though the fig tree should not blossom, And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail, And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold, And there be no cattle in the stalls, 18YET I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. 19The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, And makes me walk on my high places.”
The prophet found his contentment his peace and his happiness in his closeness to God, his relationship with his Creator. There is only one place of peace that passes all understanding and that is when you have come into unity with Jesus, because He takes our sins away and He gives us peace beyond all understanding. You cannot find that contentment with another person, with possessions, with achievements. There is an end to all those things but when you have found Jesus then you have found happiness and fulfillment.
Have you found that happiness and contentment in Jesus, yet?
May Jesus bless you.
