Bible Verses About Happiness: 99 Happiness Bible Verses by V. Ashiedu
What will Heaven be like? What does the Bible say about it?
Learn how to be happy from trusted Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah
I remember hearing the above-quoted upbeat song when I was a seven-year-old in New England. The gentle reggae drew me in, and the words seemed right enough. It was the first a cappella song to hit number one on the Billboard Hot charts, and it no doubt lent wind to a thousand collegiate a cappella groups. Humanity is hardwired to pursue happiness. There is no toddler training course on the subject. We just naturally, instinctively, pre-cognitively want to be happy. So we pursue happiness, just as we always have.
One of the most important, yet most hopeless topics in our lives is happiness. What is happiness? How do we find happiness? And most importantly how do we make it last. Happiness is a state of well-being and contentment we reach when we feel satisfied.
2. Ecclesiastes 2:26
Affluence and personal peace at any price as the controlling factors of life are as ugly as anything could be. So what does the Bible say about finding happiness? When personal happiness becomes the end goal of all that we seek, personal happiness then becomes the governing principle in our individual lives rather than Holy Spirit. What Psalm implies is that delighting yourself in the Lord is the desire of your heart. When you seek happiness in Christ you will find it.
We all want to be happy. We work at it. We strive for it. We know it when we have it, and we know when we are not happy. It seems so elusive sometimes. We often seek it in the wrong places. We run to substitutes for happiness that often make us feel even more unhappy.
What does the Bible say about? I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
