“The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

People chase feverishly after worldly (temporary) happiness. They give their earthy fortunes for it. Some have even sacrificed relationships in pursuit of it. Why? Well, maybe because they know not where true happiness lay. Man or Woman will never find happiness in magical potions or temporal trappings. Happiness, in its pure form is found only by mining treasures, found within God’s word, and then applying them to one’s life. A successful mining operation takes effort and perseverance. Successful self-application requires trust in the source. If the source isn’t trusted most generally it isn’t applied or adhered to. Trusting the Word of God is synonymous with trusting God Himself. Gold held in the hand will soon perish. God’s word held in one’s heart will provide enduring happiness. “He that giveth heed unto the word shall find good; And whoso trusteth in Jehovah, happy is he.” (Prov. 16:20 ASV).
