Many people in the world today are living on the edge and living risky lives. Many people want to obey God, but get deceived by evil lies, that they will miss out on something fun or important. God don’t want to keep you away from happiness, He wants to keep you away from evil to protect you, so that you can live in true happiness from the inside. He doesn’t want you going around chasing mirages and things that you think will bring you happiness. I think many people have used their whole life chasing material mirages and the conclusion that most have arrived to is that, wealth cannot bring true lasting inner happiness.
Yes wealth, money and material things can bring comfort to the flesh to a certain degree, it can give you momentary comfort and joy, but nothing that is really lasting or really rooted. You buy a new item, it may give you happiness for a month or two, and then you need to buy something new to make you happy. With the happiness that comes from the outside you can only be happy as long as you got all of those material things that is keeping you prepped up and happy, but as soon as you lose it your joy is also lost.
What you need is the kind of happiness God wants to give you. This is the kind of happiness that comes from the inside, and the kind of happiness that is really rooted and actually lasts. With this kind of happiness rooted inside of you, you can be happy and joyful in your darkest hour.
What are the typical mirages that people chase to be happy?
Marriage, many people are searching for a husband or a wife to make them happy. When I get that wife, when I get that husband, then I will feel worthy, then I will feel acomplished, then I will be happy.
Material Wealth. When I buy that car, when I buy that house, when I buy that new dress, when I buy that new phone,then I will feel worthy, then I will feel acomplished, then I will be happy.
Status,when I get that job, when I get that promotion, when I get that position, then I will feel worthy, then I will feel acomplished, then I will be happy.
Physical Image, when I get that body, when I get those muscles, when I lose that weight, when I get that hair or that look. Then I can be happy.
There are many exaples of mirages that people chase but the truth is that chasing mirages will never make you happy, because when you searched through one mirage, you will continue searching for new mirages and new “I’ll be happy when excuses”
Find your worth and value and happiness in God and in studying his word and through prayers. And you will find happiness that lasts.
