We need happiness to be healthy. Just as our bodies require food, water and oxygen to be healthy. Unhappiness causes disease, when you are unhappy, your body produces a substance that flows from your head to your toes and automatically troubles your health.
God designed us for happiness! Just as he provides for our needs by supplying us with food, water and oxygen. He has provided a way for us to be happy. His happiness improves our health. It takes faith to experience His happiness.
If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:20)
An illustration Jesus gave us 2000 years ago. An illustration for us to know that nothing will be impossible for you. Nothing, not even finding happiness. God gives me joy. and increases my joy when I believe Him. You and I are living we want to have joy, the kind of joy that helps our ordinary lives to be happy. Since Jesus said we can move mountains by our faith, we know that if we believe we can have great joy. If joy is available to us why is it that so many people are unhappy?
Things that give us temporary pleasure can lead to unhappiness. God wants us to find happiness in Him. He designed us so that emotionally, physically and spiritually, we need Him. And there is no limit to the amount of joy He can create in us. God tells us to rejoice in Him always (Phil 4:4)
God doesn't want us to dwell on what we lack. God knows when our faith is weak. But He wants us to dwell on what He can do. Have faith that God is working His will in you. God working in us, encouraging thought.
For it is God who. works in you to will and to act in order to fulfil his good purpose" (Philippians 2:13) Surly He who created the universe can work His will in you and me.
