Now, you can have true happiness. True happiness, not the kind of happiness that is temporary.
Most people don't even know what true happiness is. True happiness is the experience of the wisdom that flows from the throne of God. Wisdom is only available from God, and Jesus IS wisdom. Wisdom consists of righteousness, holiness and redemption. "It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God--that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption." (1 Corinthians 1:30 NIV) This is the how to of happiness: Let God do His righteousness through you and don't obey the desires of your own heart. In this way, good seed will be planted and you will reap what you sow. You will find yourself going from glory to glory into greater and greater love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, humility, inner strength, and faith. This is happiness.
Study the pages on this site to learn more about the "how-to" of true happiness. Here, you can discover what is the purpose in life and how to fulfill your purpose. It works like the diagram. Righteousness actually consists of following God's leading rather than the deception that we would have gotten from our own understanding. Holiness is actually the result of planting the seed of the Kingdom into good ground. It yields the fruit of the Spirit and it also results in your transformation into what God designed you to be.
Happiness is your destiny. And, happiness brings you to your destiny.
The US Declaration of Independence states that we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Thomas Jefferson took this concept of the pursuit of happiness from a Scottish Enlightenment writer, and it actually means, wisdom and virtue. Interestingly, The Greek word for "happiness" is eudaimonia, which is associated with aret, the Greek word for "virtue" or "excellence." This is true happiness.
Since the only source of all wisdom, virtue, or excellence is Jesus, let us seek His face with all our heart. Let us seek to yield to Him so that He can do His righteousness through us. That is the source of joy and happiness.
Virtue is goodness. Jesus said, "There is none good but God." Paul indicated that righteousness is a free gift from God and that it is grace that does good works through us, not we ourselves. He also says that it is faith that gives access to grace, and that faith comes by hearing the word (literally, utterance) of God. Jesus said, "My sheep hear My Voice."
Wisdom is defined in 1 Corinthians 1:30. It is Jesus Christ, and it is righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Righteousness, that is hearing God's Spirit and responding to Him in obedience and submission so that His love is shed abroad in out hearts by the Holy Ghost, plants the seeds of holiness. You reap what you sow. Holiness is a transfiguration, by small steps from glory to glory, largely in the mind, that sets us free our own fallen nature, Satan, and the social pressures of the culture.
Ps.144:15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
1 Peter 3:14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
1 Peter 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
Deuteronomy 33:29 Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like to thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars to thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
