Here are some of the quotes from the book “God’s Promise of Happiness” by Randy Alcorn  . If you enjoy these quotes, please buy the book at your nearest Christian bookstore or on Amazon.  Feel free to share this post over your social media. God bless you and enjoy your week!

“Sin is the biggest enemy of happiness because it results in a broken relationship with God.”

 

“As fallen, rebellious creatures, while we still want happiness, we don’t even want to want God. In spiritual darkness, we attribute our happiness to everything but God. But when we know Christ, we can cultivate our awareness of God as the Source of all happiness. Every flower, cup of coffee, meal, and song can stir within us gratitude and happiness.”

 

“Seeking happiness without God is like seeking water without wetness or sun without light.”

 

“God’s gift of happiness for believers is more than simply recognizing that happiness comes from knowing, loving, and serving God. We must do something: open God’s Word; go to a Bible study; join a church; volunteer at a homeless shelter; write a check to support missions.”

“God makes it clear that seeking happiness through sin is wrong and fruitless. But seeking happiness in him is good and right.”

“It’s not just okay to be happy; it’s right to be happy. The Bible clearly tells God’s children to be happy. Jesus commanded his disciples to be happy, and for a compelling reason: “Rejoice that your names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:20). If we’re not experiencing happiness in God, then we’re disobeying and missing the abundant life Jesus came to give (see John 10:10).”
