"Being Happy,Psalms 128" Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD that walketh in his ways.For thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands:happy shalt thou be,and it shall be well with thee.Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house:thy children like olive plants round about thy table.Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion:and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children,and peace upon Israel.
The welfare of the home depends upon the spiritual condition of the head of the home.An nonspiritual father will often produce unsaved children and and unsaved children will produce more unsaved children.The Lord gives two conditions for us to be happy.To be happy our life must have a proper center,and a proper circumference.If we are going to be happy,our life must be centered in the Lord.This fear is not being afraid of something,but spiritual fear combining reverence and trust.If We fear God we will not fear anything else.and be happy.some think that having money will make them happy,or having someone to love.The last thing they think is fearing God will make them happy.
We are to have proper boundaries,as its center is the Lord,so it's circumference is the law,the limits set by God Himself.Somethings are out of bounds.there are rules that God put forth,there are places we should not go,books we shouldn't read,and people we should not admire We find happiness only inside the circumference of Gods word.Outside of it we will find,guilt,fear,sorrow,and death.all of heaven is waiting to help those who will discover the will of God .He is so patient with us,we have become spoiled,and we can do anything if it feels good.When we don't take God serious,there are consequences about our choices.When one believes he can do as they please,and everything is going to be fine,be not deceived,they will be held accountable for their actions.The Lord promises four things,to those who put God in the center of their life.
Finances: He will bless those who blesses others.Verses2,3.
Happiness:People spend time pursuing happiness,the slightest breath of adversity and it withers and dies.
Future:God has offered His children a wonderful future.We shall be blessed beyond anything imaginable.Who else could make an offer like that?
Family:Besides God,family is the most important thing in life.The godly wife is her husbands greatest gift. He gives her support and security,and loves her as Jesus loves the church.Life tests our faith,challenging us,to find the true and lasting meaning of God.
As you take a look at your life ,you will see how serving God is more important than other options.Happiness is much more than a feeling,to find hope and joy,follow Jesus no matter the cost. Set the world aside and serve the Lord Jesus Christ,while you have the opportunity.The blessings are sure God will take care of the person who puts the Lord as the center of their life.
