Psalm 97:12 (ESV)
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!
Psalm 97:12 (NLT)
12 May all who are godly rejoice in the Lord
and praise his holy name!

THE THEOLOGY OF HAPPINESS

1. Whatever makes me happy must be right. Whatever makes me unhappy must be wrong.

2. Discomfort, delay, risk, suffering, inconveniences, and obstacles can’t be God’s will.

3. Without knowing it, I begin to worship the false gods of comfort, money, pleasure, and things.

GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU HAPPY

1. WHEN IT CAUSES YOU TO DO SOMETHING WRONG OR UNWISE.

1 Peter 1:15 (ESV)
15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,

2. WHEN IT IS ONLY BASED ON THINGS OF THIS WORLD.

1 John 2:15-17 (ESV)
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life[a]—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

GOD WANTS YOU BLESSED

Psalm 37:4 (ESV)
4 Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 97:12 (NLT)
12 May all who are godly rejoice in the Lord
and praise his holy name!
