Learn how to be happy fulltime
Please God`s heart
By: Apostle Valdemiro Santiago

In the excerpt Philippians 4.10, Apostle Paul said he rejoiced in the Lord because His care on him had flourished again. Paul celebrated and demonstrated satisfaction at the manifestation of the population in favor of his ministry. Paul was just successful because he learned to live happy in any circumstance all the time, and it was the only reason why he was so successful. It goes beyond gratitude.
Seldom, we observe this excerpt. What opens doors and is overhauling in people`s lives, in servants’ lives is this attitude of being happy whatever the circumstance might be. It`s a hard attitude because there are many situations coming up to annoy us. We realize some things that should happen just to unbelievers, but they happen to us. When we see such things, devil gets a ride and makes us dissatisfied, and unhappy.
There`s nothing more irritating and disgusting to God than ungratefulness, unhappiness, and murmuring. Figure out how much God loved Moses, he was God`s friend. Even though, God didn`t allow him to access the Promised Land beyond the Jordan River because He got annoyed at his discontentment. In the desert, many people from Israel were swallowed in craters due to discontentment. On the other hand, the ones who learn this lesson, the happier they get, more doors are opened in heaven to them, I mean, extraordinary doors are opened. It`s not enough to be called Christians, we have to learn how to be happy with Christ and with God Father. One of the most complete and blessed men the earth has ever seen, is not ashamed of saying he learned along the years. None of us will be judged for past actions, which we were discontent and ignorant if we learn how to be happy at God. When Jesus said we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, He meant we have been observed and if we murmur, if we show our dissatisfaction, the unbeliever will say the Christian live badly. We may transmit people happiness or infect them with evils. We were called for blessings and not the other way around. God sees us fulltime and when we smile healthily, plentifully, surrounded by friends, peacefully and glorify God, He feels happy too. But, when we are painful, frustrated, in need, feeling unjust, and we don`t attribute it to Him - we assume God loves us - Satan will never be able to come up with misunderstandings between God and we. The fact that shows and assures Go loves us is His attitude of giving His Beloved, Begotten and the most valuable Son to sacrifice, Jesus Christ. Many people believe that conquering big things means having Abraham`s faith and seeing miracles, but I learned that what changes and makes a difference in human being`s life is to be faithful to glorify God in all of circumstances and all. There`s a the time. If you just murmur, curse and don`t become happy in hard times, faith won`t make any difference. Faith is the certitude that God is with us even in hard times. God wishes He would change your life, but He would never bless you anyhow. Otherwise, many people would live under no rules, disrespecting God ungratefully. There`s a spreadsheet on things that touches God`s heart. Being always happy is one of them. God is always great. David was another blessed man and he said: “Be pleased at the Lord and He will fulfill your wishes from the heart”, in a plural form. “Deliver your path to the Lord and rely on Him, thus the rest He will provide.” Paul and David never saw each other, they lived in different historical moments. Paul lived more than seven hundred years later than David. I believe he read some psalms of David. The word “learned” suggests reading, exercises, and someone taught it. Caleb found God`s men who agreed with him, he also found many people who wanted to destroy his faith and hope. Likewise it happens to you and me, our bishops, pastors, servants, and God`s men. Indeed, people pay much more attention to negative and bad side of situations, so devil takes the advantage of that for him to work on. Rewards in our lives come according to our learning. Our education, mainly these days, is necessary and important. When we show our expertise, we impress our employers. What God wants us to do is to learn how to be happy for Him to be impressed as well. We are responsible for the delay of blessings in our lives. If we dedicate ourselves to God`s lessons through the Bible, we will see God`s work. We just learn when we empty us out and receive what people give us. Receive what God gives you. If you learn this lesson, your life will be different.
