Week 2 – Hard Wired for Happiness

Declaration: I declare that I am calm and peaceful.  I will not let people or circumstances upset me, because I am Hard Wired for Happiness.  My choice to live in happiness will give me the security and strength to rise above every difficulty.  Knowing that God has given me the power to remain calm.  I choose to live my life happy and bloom where I have been planted.  I will let God fight my battles.  This is my declaration.

God is in a good mood!

Psalm 89:15 “Happy are the people who know the joyful shout of Yahweh.  They will walk in your presence.” 

Psalm 122:1 “I was happy when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”

1. Is your happiness based on what happens in your life?

2. How do you maintain the proper balance between Godly happiness and worldly happiness?

3. Why should Christians be the most secure and happiest people on earth?

4. Randy Alcorn mentionsActs 17:22-23 concerning why human happiness cannot be found in objects of worship or stuff.  The answer can be found inAct 17:28.   We are hard wired for happiness.  “For in Him we live, move and have our being.”

5. Happiness is your choice! God grants the resources if you believe in the God of the Bible and have placed your faith in Jesus Christ to atone for your sins.

6. Choose how you will think and act!

“You will always move in the direction of your most dominant thought!”
