HAPPINESS IS NEVER A PLACE

“Now we call the proud ‘happy’; yea they that work wickedness are built up; yea they tempt God, and escape.” (Mal. 3:15)

We Are So Often Mistaken

  • Humans are.

  • “If I were with ________, I could be happy.”

  • “If I had_______, I could be happy.”

  • “If you can’t be happy where you are, it isn’t likely you will be happy some other place.”

  • Happiness by indirection.


Happy is the man that finds wisdom
“Happy is the man that finds wisdom…

  • And the man that gets understanding” (Prov. 3:13)

  • Just before this verse are 4 points. (1)Grab hold of mercy and truth, (2) Trust the Lord (3) Be honest with the Lord (4) Honor the Lord.

  • Wisdom isn’t having a million facts committed to memory.

  • “Happiness isn’t found in packs, 6 or 20.”

  • Wisdom should direct our path.


Happiness is counting your blessings and sharing them
Happiness is counting your blessings – and sharing them

  • Having so much and wishing for more destroys happiness – Eccl. 5:10

  • Be truly thankful – and do count.

  • What did Jesus mean in Matt. 10:39?

  • Have you ever noticed how many poor, unattractive people are laughing, and appear happy?


You can t be happy until you trust
You can’t be happy until you trust

  • But people aren’t trustworthy. Are they?

  • John 2:23-25

  • He trusted us with His truth, and His kingdom. To keep and extend.

  • People thrill and disappoint us. Jesus never disappoints!

  • Prov. 16:20 – “whoso trusts in the Lord, happy is he.”

  • What would it be like to be near death’s door, and not trust in God? What would sustain us?
