Does God Want Me to be Happy?

Posted on: 7-15-112017

Happiness is something we all desire, but many struggle to experience. Life can be an uphill battle of epic proportions, and we can find ourselves wondering if God even cares about our happiness or not. God does care, but He knows that happiness is not the most important thing we can have…He is! What God finds more important than if we are happy or not is whether or not we are following Him. He would much rather see us in total brokenness depending on Him for our every breath than happy and finding our  strength in our own self. He would much rather see us falling completely apart at His feet than having it all together and tooting our own horn. God knows that our true joy can only be found in Him, and He will do whatever necessary to draw us to Him. We may struggle with God’s methods of bringing us to find our “happy place”, but we can trust Him. He is our Father, and He loves us beyond measure! He does want us to be happy, but He will not accept our happiness as a substitute for what we really need which is Him.

“The Lord is waiting to show you mercy, and is rising up to show you compasssion, for the Lord is a just God. All who wait for Him are happy.” Isaiah 30:18
