Blessing #79……..

“…Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!” Psalm 144:15………

Oh, what a blessing it is to be happy, isn’t it? And this verse tells us that we will be happy when we have a million dollars, right? And when we marry the person of our dreams, right? And when we can take vacations to beautiful places several times a year, right? And when we get out of prison early, right? And when we get an apartment and no longer live on the streets, right? And when we lose just the right amount of pounds to look beautiful in a new outfit, right? And when we get a delicious meal at the new restaurant down the block, right? We may well be happy when any of these things happen. But there is no happiness that can possibly compare with the happiness – and love, peace, hope, and joy – that comes with being given the promise of forever fellowship with Jesus Christ as Lord instead of spending forever apart from Him in hell and the lake of fire. And we can’t buy that happiness. Jesus Christ paid the price for us when He died on the cross to pay our sin punishment and was raised from the dead so all who turn from our sins and believe in Him as Lord, truly turning our lives over to God and His ways, are forgiven and given everlasting life with Him! All happiness based on this present world is temporary. Happiness based on having a forever relationship with the Lord is forever! Hallelujah! A beautiful, beautiful everlasting blessing! The happiness of being with Jesus forevermore! Oh, hallelujah!
