All the days of the afflicted are evil,
But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance,
But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
Only a person who stay happy will celebrate everyday because he respond positively to circumstances. He know that as a believer of God, His every steps are directed by God. And all things work out for good to those who love Him, to those who are called according to His purpose. He knew that Jesus won the battle and we have every reason to celebrate. Only a person who stay happy will smile and not be depressed. He will being a smile to others. David understood that God the Father wants him to stay happy though he suffer affliction. Those who choose to think negative without an effort of wanting to change, evil will follow him. It is written in Psalm 15:15. David also responded with a great attitude of faith saying, " You have put gladness in my heart, More than the season that their grain and wine increased.
I believe that God wants me to be happy. He wants me to celebrate with him every day to have a feast(fellowship) together. I want goodness and mercy to follow me and not evil. I believe that God has put gladness in my heart and I just have to put in and effort to smile and be cheerful. Indeed a cheerful heart is a medicine to the soul. I want to be healthy as a whole.Though everyday i have tormenting thoughts, I believe that as I fixed my eyes upon Jesus, I will feel joy. I will not focus on pain. Thank God that I still smile and put in effort to be happy. I believe that God will deliver me from the negative stronghold that the devil has put in my mind. It's for freedom that Christ has set me free. All I ever one, all I ever need, all I ever have is You. Jesus, You are the true and everlasting friend that stay with me forever. I hope that one day You will call me your friend like Moses. :)
