The pursuit of happiness?
I read this recently on instagram, the popular image world –
“When I was 5 years old my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I dint understand the assignment, and I told them they dint understand life” – John Lennon.
A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit. (Proverbs 15:13 NIV)
I wrote an article last month on Joy and how important an asset it is in the kingdom of God. If you haven’t read it, I suggest you read it.
So, how do we keep ourselves consistently happy?
There are many books, articles and many famous authors have come up with formulas to be happy. I am sure most of us have different things that work for us, and here’s a biblical way I find very helpful.
1 -> Fill yourself with the truth, IMMEDIATELY!
I remind, speak out loud(declare) and believe the truth in the word of God as often as I can. The truth is He loves us and there is nothing that can separate us from His love. And no matter how bad or how low it feels, He has amazing plans for us. Plans to prosper and not to harm us. That is His promise and He never lies.
2 -> Nothing changes our identity
Be quick to set your identity in Christ. We are more than conquerors ‘through’ Him. It is ‘through’ Him we can do all things.
To set our identity in Christ means to not worry about our earthly position, reputation, name and fame. The richest person on earth or the poorest, we are children of the most high God and He loves us equally.
3 -> You don’t have to know it all
“If you want peace that passes understanding, you’ve got to give up the right to understand” – Bill Johnson.
I know this one is not easy. We all like microbiology – go to the smallest detail of everything. But if you can get this one, make sure you spread it.
This is a stage where your faith is tested. Make a conscious effort to believe that God is working behind and you will see the master piece soon.
4 -> Build a motivation machine
We were made for relationships. Firstly, with God and then with people around us. Surround yourself with people who believe in you, who build you, who speak good things to you, who motivate you, who appreciate you and in short people you enjoy being with.
There are 5 kinds of people in our lives. I learned this last year.
1 – Resourceful people – They are people who ignite your passion(fathers, mentors etc)
2 – Important people – People who share your passion(Friends and others who are in the same level as you)
3 – Teachable people – They look to you. They are your followers. What you receive, you must give(You reproduce yourself)
4 – Nice people – They enjoy our passion. They enjoy what you do. They are not concerned about anything that happen to you(the crowd)
5 – Very draining people – They drain your passion. They are a burden and they never want to change. Always negative and sucks the life out of you.
Make sure you are spending at least 80% of your time on the first 3.
I hope you are blessed with this and I pray you live happy and enjoy life everyday. Don’t forget to share if you are blessed.
