INTRODUCTION

************

The Lord wants us to rejoice in Him at all times. The joy of the Lord will be a good medicine for our lives. The Holy Spirit will fill our hearts with joy. He will give us the oil of joy instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. It is the will of God that we rejoice always.

SCRIPTURES FOR MEDITATION

*************************

Philippians 4:4

" Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! "

Proverbs 17:22

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always,

pray continually,

give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Romans 14:17

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Isaiah 61:3

and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

THE MESSAGE

SEVEN KEYS TO EXPERIENCING CONTINUOUS HAPPINESS IN LIFE

*******************************************************

1.PRAYER

We can experience continuous happiness in life if we learn to cast our cares and burdens on the Lord through prayer and supplication . The Lord does not want us to go through life with a heavy heart carrying all our burdens upon ourselves. Instead the Lord is our burden bearer and He wants us to cast all our cares upon Him. As the Hymn ’What a friend we have in Jesus’ states ’ Oh what peace we often forfeit , Oh what needless pain we bear , All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer’ .

SCRIPTURES FOR MEDITATION

*************************

Philippians 4:6

" Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

I Peter 5:7

" Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. "

2.PRAISE

We can experience continuous happiness in life if we learn to praise and thank the Lord at all times . We should have a heart of gratitude for all the benefits that we have received from the Lord. We must praise Him in every situation , even in difficult times . Our joy and pride is in knowing God and not in our wealth and wisdom. Paul and Silas praised God even in prison. It is dangerous to develop a bitter and murmuring attitude towards God. The Israelites were punished severely when they murmured against God . They failed to enter the promised land because of their murmuring and unbelief.
