God Wants Me to Be Happy

by Zeke Flores

"God wants me to be happy!"

How many times have you heard that from someone? How often might you have said it yourself?

Interestingly, the Bible says nothing like that. It does say that God wants you to be holy (I Peter 1:14-16), which is much deeper and far more significant than happiness.

I'm not saying God wants us to be unhappy, but the true path to happiness is more than happiness. Joy is not in our selfish desires but in the will of the One who knows what's best for us. Besides, why settle for mere happiness when you can have so much more?

Find holiness by finding your place in Him. Today.

Ready? Let's go!
