“Happy New Year!” is the call of most of the world in these days. That’s precisely what I want for you and me, as well as for so many that I know around the world.
We can have a Happy New Year. Let me tell you what will make that possible for you:
It will be happy if we do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scoffers.
It will be happy if we meditate in God’s precious, wisdom-giving word.
It will be happy if we ensure that Jesus is Lord in our daily lives.
We will have a happy new year if we think on whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is just, whatever is lovely, and whatever is of a good report [that eliminates the obsession of some for most of the news broadcasts!!].
We will be happy if we place into practice those things which Jesus has both taught and commanded.
Finally, we will have a happy new year if we give more than we receive.
All these things are simple principles God gives for true happiness. Make this the happiest year of your life; seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.
I look forward to worshiping the Lord God through Christ Jesus in the coming days, weeks, and months. Ultimately, that will produce the deepest joy and greatest measure of happiness.
Let’s be happy together.
