Many people want to live a happy life but they are belaboured with sadness that comes from unfulfillment, troubles and trials of the world. Consider the life of a mother who once sought the Lord for a child many years. She laboured for nine hours in the labour room to bring the child to earth and nurtured the child up to adolescent but for the child to turn against her. That child has become a source of unhappiness for that mother and she cannot live a happy life due to her circumstance.
Take a look at a man who works so hard to acquire wealth in order to cater for his family but he’s hardly at home to nurture and be emotionally available for his family. That man has become a source of unhappiness for his family and his family cannot live a happy life without the vacuum he has left in their hearts. Most people want to live a happy life but their happiness hinges on what their circumstance dictates in their lives. However what most people do need is to live a happy life that is not dependent on anybody, any situations or circumstance.
What you want is a happiness that comes naturally and that which flows freely to those around you without any compromise or any hindrances and it can only be found in Jesus. A news report once showed that some of the poorest people in the world are the happiest people on earth. Their happiness is not dependent on what they don’t have but in the simplicity of life that they do live. The happiness you need to live your life lies in the simplicity of believing in Christ Jesus.
Today you can change the course of your life and choose to live a happy life despite your circumstances. You can align your lifestyle your wants and your needs to God’s plans and purposes for your life, and you can change your world through the word of God. Are you ready to live happy despite your circumstances? Then speak your best year into existence with the following Bible declarations.
