Happiness

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 12

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil-this is the gift of God.

I thought I would talk about Happiness today.See the source image

We all have our own troubles and worries of some sort, whether it may be financial or worried about a relative/friend who is ill. It doesn’t really matter what the problem or worry is as long as we have the Lord on our side because through the power of prayer he will see us through that period.

In writing this I am reminded of the Sunday school chorus Happiness is to know the Saviour

Wisdom 2

Ecclesiastes 2:26

26 To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

There is a story in the Bible that speaks of Solomon, a young man who, after God offered him anything his heart desired, he requested wisdom. In response to his humble wish, God said to Solomon: … The Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary defines wisdom as “knowledge, and the capacity to make due use of it.”

Godly Wisdom For Our Decisions

 

When we’re facing a decision
And we’re feeling so unsure,
We need to pray for godly guidance
And the wisdom of the Lord

 

We need to wait with confidence
That God will show the way
And open doors we must go through,Image result for god's wisdom
Giving peace when we pray

 

Show us your ways, O Lord,
And where we need to walk
Guide us to where you want us,
Help us pray as we ought

 

Equip us with power and strength
To tread upon new ground,
To go where we’ve not been before
Where your blessings shall abound

 

For we shall never know how much
You long to bless our lives
Unless we take that step of faith
And follow the steps of Christ

 

To be where we can grow in you
And become more mature in faith,
To live in the wisdom that you’ve given,
To be immersed in your saving grace

 

To know your will for our lives,
We but only need to ask
You long to show us what to do,
All we need is obedient hearts
