Philippians 3:10

PHI 4:4 “Keep on having perfect happiness by means of the Lord at all times; Once more I repeat the command, keep on having perfect happiness.”

Pseudo-happiness Satan’s attempt to counterfeit the happiness, the contentment, the blessing that God has provided for all members of the human race.

JOH 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it more abundantly.”

Because God wills the highest and the best for you as a believer, it is only when you receive that highest and best do you glorify God.

PSA 16:2-3 “O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.” (KJV)

God’s will is to give you His perfect happiness in the midst of all adverse situations.

God doesn’t depend on us for His pleasure and glory; instead He expresses His pleasure and glory toward us.

God is not glorified by our system of human works but is glorified by meeting our every need.

PSA 50:15 “And call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will glorify Me.”

JOB 36:11 “If they hear and serve Him, They shall end their days in prosperity, And their years in pleasures.”

1JO 2:15-16 “Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.”
