“ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart.” Psalm 119:1-2 (KJV)
The happiness of the world is fleeting. Many people go along searching for happiness, and find what they think is “Happiness”, then……. it is gone. Like a puff of smoke, a gust of wind; and it is done. The search begins all over again.
The Psalmist has given us 176 verses in Psalm 119. They all show us the way of the “Blessed” or the truely “Happy” people.
Happy people walk in the way that is God’s. They are the undefiled, not by their own decree, but by God’s decree, and that is by the blood of the sacrificed Lamb of God who is Jesus Christ. These happy people find themselves in possession of the law of the LORD within their hearts, desiring to live for the LORD in all His holiness.
Happy people keep His testimonies, and seek Him with a “whole heart”. That is a heart that is right with God; a redeemed heart, a clean heart, free from guilt shame, condemnation.
The apostle Paul wrote,
“There is therefor now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1
and he writes also,
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1
Happy people have found true happiness through God’s own decree. “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear Him.” Matthew 17:5 You will not be happy until you do.
