Did you know that when you get a cut on your finger that there is nothing you can put on top of it to heal it?
Of course, there are creams that “disinfect the cut”, but those don’t actually “heal the cuts” we get…
Do you ever wonder why we put a Band-Aid over them?
It’s because all we can do to temporarily aid the healing of a cut is to stop it from bleeding. We put a Band-Aid on it but ultimately, it has to heal on its own… Our bodies have to take the right elements (vitamins and minerals) from the foods we eat, and send those complex broken down elements to the area of the cut to begin healing it from the deepest inward depth of the cut which we can’t see, outwards to the surface level which we can visibly see.
Just the same way, peace and happiness do not come from outward material gains or aspirations. When we seek to find true happiness in this lifetime, or true peace, it starts with feeding our spirits deep within, and with time, it will soon begin to show on the outsides as well, what we now truly feel inside of us.
You can put on a smile every day on the outside, but if you aren’t truly happy on the inside, then the only person you’ve really fooled is yourself.
How do you find true happiness and peace?
Do you know that God loves you and He wants to give you these things? True peace and true happiness doesn’t rely on any outwards circumstance. It comes from reading and understanding who your true enemy is and what God’s gift is, and promises for you and your life are. When you read and understand, then your car can break down, and you aren’t affected. You can lose your job yet you don’t see any need to worry. Your partner can leave, yet you don’t feel lonely. You can lose your phone, but when you know God’s promises, it doesn’t even bother you.
When you place your happiness and peace on outward objects, then when you lose those objects, you lose your peace and happiness. Which kinda tells you that you never really had it to begin with.
What God gives us when we learn His Word, no one can ever take from us.
It heals up our hearts and minds and makes us strong enough to take on all the adversities of life. A life that God wants us to have an abundance of happiness and joy in.
While writing this, my Lotus notes crashed, and I lost everything I wrote. Thanks to the wisdom God has poured out into me, I barely batted an eye and simply re-opened the program after shutting it down, and began to write it again. All praises to our wonderful God who takes such good care of our happiness, peace and joy when we place it with Him!
Keep your mind clear and be alert. Your enemy the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion as he looks for someone to devour. Be firm in the faith and resist him knowing that other believers throughout the world are going through the same kind of suffering.
The enemy has thousands of ways of beguiling unstable souls. Those who don’t know God’s promises leave themselves open to such attacks, but be encouraged…
The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven
But you can only take advantage of such a promise from God when you Know who your true enemy is.
For our struggle is not against human opponents, but against rulers, authorities, cosmic powers in the darkness around us, and evil spiritual forces in the heavenly realm
Knowing your enemy is the first step, but knowing your defence against that enemy is something that Only the Word of God can give you.
I pray true peace and true happiness for you all brothers and sisters…
May God Bless You Always.
