THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS

Scripture for today

Ecclesiastes 2:17-18 AMP
So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me; for all is vanity and a striving after the wind and a feeding on it. And I hated all my labor in which I had toiled under the sun, seeing that I must leave it to the man who will succeed me. [Ps. 49:10.]

You know sometimes you ask myself, what is really the point living?  Everything is vanity, just like Solomon we work so hard to have someone come and take over from us. There is nothing permanent in life we are just work and toil and try so hard to make it.  We try everything we can but we still feel unfulfilled and bitter. We try all we can to find satisfaction and joy even peace in all the labours of our hands. Still nothing seems to be worth it. 

So you are searching for the secret of happiness and fulfilment, here it is:
Ecclesiastes 12:13 AMP
All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God's providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man.

We need to understand our purpose in God and work tirelessly to work in it. Doing God's will is not without challenge we will work hard also but it comes with a sense of fulfilment and happiness. Happiness comes from doing something meaningful with your life.  Having something you are happy to go do everyday. If you complain about what you are doing ask yourself "am I really working in purpose"? Having a sense of fulfilment comes from understanding who you are in God and who he has called you to be. Find that purpose, work tirelessly in it and see yourself at peace enjoying your place. 

Prayer: Father, help me realize who I am in you.
