How to Really be Happy

  How to Really be Happy 

Biblical instructions just for You

 

 Did you know that the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 are instructions, directly from your Heavenly Father, on how to be happy right now ? 

We are going to take a look at those beatitudes and explore how easy it is to apply these simple directives to your life right now .

But first I have a question for you . Where do you turn for counsel on something so vital to your quality of life ? 

Many turn to their TV. There you will find numerous 'go-to' self-help celebrity's looking fly and sounding like a personal angel just for you. Those catchy sugar coated one liners they say sound so good.

 With any sugar high follows a sugar crash. All the talk shows are produced for ratings. 



Many people turn to professional counsellors or psychiatrists. These services are set up to make money . They are businesses. If they actually had an agenda to cure people of their unhappy problems they would soon be out of business. Psychiatrists regularly prescribe medications that they don't even know how they work. In other words they chemically carpet bomb their own patients brains for a living. In the Bible they are called Sorcerers. Read the last page of your Bible to see what God thinks of them.


 


All fathers want their children to feel better and improve their health and your Heavenly Father is no exception . 

Matthew chapter 5 verse 3 . Our Lord Jesus Christ teaching is about to teach us about how to be blessed . These are the 'Beatitudes'. This is gold . 

First off the word 'blessed' here in your King James really translates 'Happy' .  

Our Lord Jesus Christ will point out not only the characteristics that get you blessed but also what is the greatest moral and ethical good for you .

1) Matthew 5 v:3 Christ states "Blessed are the poor in spirit" .    

Your soul is what you are . Human being . 
Your spirit is who you are . The force by which you feel, think and decide . Your spirit is the intellect of your soul, the reactive attitude that motivates all actions . 

Mt 5 v:3 means your spirit is rich towards God and poor to the ways and things of the world . The Bible says 'You can't serve two masters, You can't serve God and mammon . (mammon means money and the things it can buy)

2) Mt 5 v:4 Christ states "Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted" 

This means you are happy to be part of the light of Christ . Happy to be in understanding of the truth as the truth is the great separating force between right and wrong, good and evil, heaven and hell . But you mourn for those who are outside the truth for whatever reason and struggle through life in the darkness . 

3) Mt 5 v:5 Christ states "Blessed are the meek" 

  •  This means you have submitted to our Lord with unquestioning obedience in all humility and humbleness. 
  •  Meek in the original Hebrew language means to 'afflict' in the sense of self discipline. 
  •  Meek means saying 'No' to oneself. Meek means staying true to ones own convictions in the face of vain curiosity's.
  •   Meek means saying 'No' to others and their vanity's. One could say "I'm meek towards God but not towards you". Christians are not second class doormat citizens 

4) Mt 5 v:6 & 8 Christ states "Blessed are they which do hunger and search after righteousness for they shall be filled" and "blessed are the pure in heart for they see God"

  • This means they have unwavering faith while seeking God's wisdom, understanding, counsel, knowledge and strength . 
  • This means they act selflessly without thoughts or intents of gain or reward .
  • This means they have detached themselves from the fruit of their actions and offered them to God .
  • They divert their instincts to serve God
  • They submit to God by sublimating vain activities and thoughts into productive works for God with no malice .
5) Mt 5 v:7 & 9 Christ states "Blessed are the merciful" and "Blessed are the peacekeepers"

  • This means being compassionate 
  • Seeking peace between individuals, i.e. harmony, concord
  • You seek to be part of a security, safety, prosperity, felicity, because peace and harmony make and keep things safe and prosperous
  • Your journey is dedicated to a place of peace 

Your call to action lies within yourself . As one thinks in their heart, so they are .
Personal happiness can only come from within  .

Christ teaches with splendid simplicity . 
The main pointers for you to follow are:
  1. Humble yourself
  2. Have unwavering faith in God
  3. Always put God first
  4. Seek a working knowledge of God's word, the Bible .
  5. Always give thanks to God 
Happiness is strictly up to the individual . It cannot be forced on others . In other words never put expectations on others so as to govern your happiness . People will always let you down at one point or another . God will never let you down . 

Happiness cannot be bought, its free . Let go and start being happy Now !
