“Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” Psalm 146:5 Happiness is an elusive thing. Why? In large measure it’s because the things we tend to pursue do not touch the deepest needs of our hearts. Our pursuits may provide moments of enjoyment, distraction, or pleasure, but the cry of our hearts goes unheard. It is only when we entrust ourselves to God and His care that we can find the happiness we seek. Our hope and help are found only in trusting Him. The one who puts God first will have happiness that lasts.
