Are You Happy? Only God’s Will Makes Us Happy

Do you ever find yourself asking, “What am I supposed to be doing with my life?” We’ve all been there at some point in our lives. For most of us, it comes as we graduate from High School and we are thinking about the future. For others, they may start college majoring in one area of study and then, change majors because they discover they enjoy something totally different than they did when they started college.
What about you? What do you enjoy? What’s your purpose in life?
In the first chapter of Jeremiah, the Lord is calling Jeremiah. The Lord says to Jeremiah, “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Notice the Lord says, “Before I formed your mother’s womb…I set you apart and appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
God set apart Jeremiah apart from the time of conception. God does the same with us. God has a purpose for all of us. God has a plan for us. And, we will only be happy and experience fulfillment when we are following God’s plan for our lives.
What about you today? Are you doing what God wants you to do? If not, you should be.
Over the last year-and-a-half, I’ve been in car sales. There was a time when I didn’t think I wanted to Pastor again. But, God has humbled me… just like Jonah in the whale. God has reminded me of my purpose in life.
How about you? We will never be as happy as we will be in the center of God’s will.
God chose Jeremiah before his birth. God has a plan for us as well. Are you doing today, what God wants you to do? If not, I encourage you to seek God’s will. You will only be happy doing God’s will in your life.
