Does God want us to be happy?
Think about it for a moment. If you had created little people, wouldn’t you love them and want them to be happy?
Read this, and then you decide the answer to this question.
‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Would you be willing to die for someone?
Tough question, huh?
Most of us would not, I think, but not God, he DID die for YOU and ME!
And the bible says He did it because he Loved us so much!
We Were Created In The Image Of God
Did you ever look at a new born baby and exclaim, “She looks JUST like her mother.”?
We are Gods offspring, and so we actually look like God.
By nature, we desire to be with the one who created us.
Deep down there is a very natural longing to be with the one who made us, and to please Him.
When I was younger I always wanted to please my mom and dad. And they loved me for that.
Let’s see what the Bible says about us being created in the image of God.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Gen. 1
It says we were created in Gods image, after His likeness. Now this image and likeness is more referring to our soul, or inner man than it does our outward physical man.
And when we displease God it makes us unhappy. When we sin, it displeases God.

God DOES Want Us To Be Happy!
Let’s read what Jesus has to say about this.
“These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15.11
Not only does God want us to be happy, he wants us to be filled with Joy!
When is the last time you were filled with Joy? You can be.
I know life can be hard, if you think YOU have had a hard life, read here my testimony of suffering.
