Overwhelming Happiness in God Alone

“I will be their God.” Jeremiah 31:33


Dear Christian, what more could you possibly need? To be truly happy, you desire something that will fully satisfy you. Is this promise not enough? If you could pour it into your own cup, would you not say, as David did, “My cup overflows” (Psalm 23:5). I have more than my heart could wish for.



…Are you asking for more than just quiet satisfaction? Do you desire rapturous delight? Then come, dear soul, God is the maker of heaven itself, and music fit for heaven is your inheritance. Earthly music blown through the sweetest woodwinds or drawn from living strings could never produce a melody as sweet as this promise, “I will be their God.”


…This is the masterpiece of all of God’s promises. Truly recognizing it makes for a heaven on earth and a heaven above. Abide in the light of your Lord and always allow your soul to be ravished with His love. Don’t miss God’s total provision for you in His promise, “I will be their God.” Live up to your privileges and rejoice “with an inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 1:8). “My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods.” (Psalm 63:5).


–Charles Spurgeon



It seems the entire world is searching for happiness, love, and fulfillment. Yet so many of us search for these things everywhere except where they can truly be found–in God alone.

–Jim Reimann
