Many have tried to fill that gap of happiness by becoming rich and famous, yet all these things never bring them true happiness.Even King Solomon the wisest man in the bible, who had all the riches and everything and more money could buy said a few things:
1) Ecclesiastes 2:11, 'But when I reflected on all the works that my own hands had done and on all the hard work that I had toiled to accomplish, I saw that everything was futile, a chasing after the wind; there was nothing of real value under the sun.' Solomon acknowledge that everything he accomplish, and he accomplished quite a lot, that it all amounted to nothing like chasing after the wind. Here Solomon was stating that accumulating materials gains don't bring true happiness. So what really brings true happiness?
2) Solomon tells us what will bring true happiness at Ecclesiastes 12:13, 'The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man.' Being obedient to God's commandments will give us true happiness that we will not find any where.
Psalms 144:15 says, 'Happy is the people whose God is Jehovah.' Having a close relationship with my Heavenly Father and striving to make his heart happy gives me true happiness that no amount of money could ever buy. A person who is searching for happiness will never find it unless they come to know God and form a close relationship with him. For James 4:8 tells us, 'Draw close to God, and He will draw close to you.' God is extending a beautiful invitation to all who is looking for true happiness. Imagine having God, the Grand Creator as your best friend! It will be the best friendship you have ever form because he is the type of God who will have your back, a friend who will never leave you, a friend who is always happy and wants to see you happy also. I don't have much materially, but accepting God's invitation to be his friend have given me what money cannot buy true happiness. Will you accept God's invitation to be his friend and enjoy a relationship with a happy God?
