God’s Glory, Our Happiness

One of the greatest manifestations of the wisdom of God in the way He saves and works in the lives of people is that what glorifies Him brings us happiness.  He has brought these two things together.  It has often been commented on, but it never loses its wonder to the humble heart.  Our greatest desire—to be happy—will be fulfilled in seeking to honor God in all that we do.  Richard Sibbes said this: “What a sweetness is this in God, that in seeking our own good we should glorify Him. Therefore let us dedicate ourselves and services to God, for happy are they that can lose themselves in God, and be swallowed up in the love of Christ.  For time will come, if we belong to Christ, in which we shall lament for spending our time in pursuit of our own vanities.”
