Think God doesn’t want you to be happy? Think again.

We know that we will experience unimaginable joy and happiness in Heaven, but that doesn’t mean we can’t also experience joy and happiness here on earth.

In God’s Promise of Happiness, bestselling author and noted theologian Randy Alcorn shares select passages and scripture from his latest hardcover release, Happiness, that provide insight, wisdom, and proof positive that God not only wants us to be happy, he commands it!

Top Highlights

“Both psychological research and Scripture demonstrate that those who give generously and serve others are happy people. Those waiting to be happy shouldn’t hold their breath —it could be a long wait!” (source)

“Research indicates there is ‘little correlation between the circumstances of people’s lives and how happy they are.’[11] Yet when people respond to the question ‘Why aren’t you happy?’ they tend to focus on their current circumstances. Happy people look to Someone so big that by his grace, even great difficulties provide opportunities for a deeper kind of happiness.” (source)

“Christians see the world seeking happiness instead of holiness, so we assume we should not seek happiness at all. But this false contrast between holiness and happiness is both unbiblical and impractical. The devil’s lie is that embracing holiness brings unhappiness. But God says duty and delight are connected.” (source)

“ we believe God’s in charge, then our complaints are about him. How dare he not give us what we want, when we want it” (source)

“happiness is dependent not on circumstances but on perspective, which is determined by our focus.” (source)
