“Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord — the people he has chosen to be his own possession!”Psalms 33:12 CSB
“We wait for the Lord; he is our help and shield. For our hearts rejoice in him because we trust in his holy name. May your faithful love rest on us, Lord, for we put our hope in you.”Psalms 33:20-22 CSB
This is the reason our nation is not happy. We are our own god. We are our own authority. We will not be anyone’s possession.
The key to joy and happiness is a trusting abandon to God. We have joy when we trust in God and our hope is in Him.
The more we try to control, the more we become angry or anxious.
The more we complain, the more we become bitter and discontent.
