“God provides the environment for the happy life…”

prayingpsalmsFrom Eugene H. Peterson’s Praying With the Psalms:

You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you. ~ Psalm 128:2

Everyone wants to be happy; not everyone is willing to participate in the conditions of happiness. God provides the environment for the happy life: his ways and his presence are the context in which we experience the happiness that lasts.

PRAYER: Father in heaven, I want your presence to become such a natural part of my life that all my acts are motions of obedience and all my words are accented with praise, so that I may experience the prosperity you have for me in Jesus Christ. Amen.
