Scripture: Job 36:11 If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment. (NIV)
Nugget: Most times, when you ask someone what they would like to achieve in life, the response is, “To be happy.” This would also be one of the answers I would provide for myself. One of the main challenges we face is how to get to this happiness we seek.
Our purpose in life should be to obey & serve God. In doing this, our relationship with Him is strengthened & we obtain the joy that can only come from Him. In this joy, our happiness lies.
Serving God opens the doors to prosperity & contentment. As long as we are focused on Him & His ways, our lives will be according to His plan.
Quote: “Spread out your petition before God, and then say, "Thy will, not mine, be done." The sweetest lesson I have learned in God's school is to let the Lord choose for me.” -D.L. Moody
