We can be happy whereas there is nothing to be happy about. This should be the principle behind every Christian’s faith. You can only say, “Thank You, Jesus” genuinely when you are happy. In other words, “Thank You, Jesus” is a response from a happy heart. Daniel was happy whereas there was nothing to be happy about. That was why he went to his upper room to say, “Thank You, Lord”. You too can be happy as a Christian, even when everything around you suggests that there is no hope.
As a Christian, you can still find occasions to rejoice in the Lord. What is your situation? Are you under the pressure of poverty, sickness, rejection, failure in marriage, failure in career, failure in business or demonic oppression? Ask God to give you the cause to be happy. Ask God to give you the cause to be happy in your marriage, career, business and everything you set your hand to, in Jesus’ name.
