There is no greater joy than truly having a deep and personal relationship with God – A great bond that is based on understanding Him and His great love for us. It is the kind of happiness that nothing in this world could ever measure.

God is happiness that is beyond compare. Happiness that stays, uplifts, empowers, nourishes and lights up the soul. It is happiness that is forever, secure, strong and unshakeable regardless of circumstances.

Even Science confirms this. Out of well designed research, 79% proved that a strong faith and being active in God’s works relates to higher emotional well-being, happiness and satisfaction in life.

On top of Happiness that comes from God, more research conducted between 1987 and 1995 confirmed that 21,000 adults who served God lived seven years longer.

What’s more is that Dr. Viktor Frankl wrote in his book “Man’s Search for Meaning” about how his Faith in God helped him survive in a Nazi concentration camp.

Remember the times your days were great, you have all you need and even more? That’s God making you smile and happy ever since He created you.

But what about those really painful things that happened? It was the enemy making you turn away from God. The enemy is working its way through other people to deceive you and destroy your soul. (John 8:44).

Often times because of the troubles caused by the enemy, we fall into this trap of blaming God. You see, God will never ever harm us. God loves us.

He only wants the highest good for us. He believes in us that even if the enemy tries to harm us, we will choose to always do the right thing.

You are special, worthy, valuable, beautiful and lovely. That’s how God sees you. That’s how He’ll let you see yourself and everyone through His eyes.

No matter what the lies of the enemy has told you to believe for so long, God always always loves you. His love is so great and true that He would send Jesus to save us from sin. (John 3:16).

The enemy was so jealous that he defiled our soul to keep us far away from God. We’ve become so impure that we are shamed to go to Him.

As God is just and merciful, He had to punish us because of our sins. He could have easily condemned us but God sent Jesus to take the punishment for us.

Through Jesus our souls are cleansed to be alive with eternal life and free from condemnation.

Seek God by praying. Pray to God with thankfulness, praise and repentance. Remember to be grateful to Him. His goodness gives us life.

The wonders of his love are truly praise worthy. Be truly sorry for all the wrong doings and decide to change them.

Ask God to reveal himself to you and help you fully understand. The Holy Spirit of God will open your mind and heart.

God will give you wisdom.  He will guide your actions and show you the truth. He will awaken you to a beautiful life. (Proverbs 8:17)

 2.Worship.

3.Let God Speak.

God speaks through the Bible. He answers us all the time. He loves spending time speaking with us. For beginners in Faith like me, choose a New International Version of the Bible.

Make a devotion to read and understand God’s word everyday first thing in the morning. Start by reading a verse and reflect on it. Write the Bible verse and your reflections in a journal.

Have fellowship with people who know and live God’s word. Be with people who share God’s word. Learn and grow with them.

5. Serve in God’s ministry.

Use your talents, skills and passion to actively share God’s word in the Church. You can join either a music, multimedia or preaching ministry.

Serve God with people who share their skills to bring people closer to God.

God loves to cheer us up. He gives us everlasting joy and shares His heavenly kingdom with us. God gives us desires that are good for us and more.

We just need to truly be willing to really know God so we can fully accept Jesus in our lives.  And when we do, life becomes meaningfully happy.

Which of these ways make you feel closer to God? I’d love to know. Tell me in the comments and I’ll tell you mine. ^_^
