What is the purpose of life?
Who is God?
What is love?
How will I find happiness, peace and fulfillment?
Questions that we all ponder about in life, don’t we!
Let’s look at a definition, shall we?
- The act of searching for something; “a quest for ???”
- Earnest and conscientious activity intended to do or accomplish something.
What is your quest in life? What are you looking to achieve in life?
Lets look at a verse or two in the most famoust book of all times, 6 billion copies sold, over 40 authors, 168 000 is distribted per day. Have you read the block buster?
“How blessed and favored by God are those whose way is blameless [those with personal integrity, the upright, the guileless], Who walk in the law [and who are guided by the precepts and revealed will] of the LORD. Blessed and favored by God are those who keep His testimonies, And who [consistently] seek Him and long for Him with all their heart.” – PSALM 119:1-2 AMP
Blessed mean superlative happy. Now substitute blessed with “superlatively happy” is “your name”. Has a good ring to it doesn’t it!!!!
Ok now that we have established where happiness comes from. Let’s establish the conditions for it.
Mmmm. A blameless life!!! Wowww who of us can claim that one?
Ok second who walks in His laws / testimonies. Ok so obviously there is my law and then there is God’s. Does yours make you happy??? Why are you reading this anyway?
And the last but not the least; seek Him with all, your heart. What do you really love? Soccer, nature, holidays, …? I guess it is like falling in love with that first love of your life. You just can’t get enough of that person!!! Does it say half ur heart? No all of it!!! No 95% or high averagers allowed, only 100% candidates. Real commitment hey? Are you up for it?
Remember happiness is the byproduct not the end goal. 😉 😉
So, is that the way you study your Bible? With all your heart? Some say it is God’s love letter to us. Sounds a bit cheesy? There may be some truth in that! Be one of the famous 6 billion who has a bible and has read it!
