Many people allow their happiness to be based on their present circumstances! If their circumstances change, then so does their mood from good to sad. The Apostle Paul was in prison when he wrote the book to the Philippians yet he said, “rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice”. Phil. 4:4. Why was he able to pin these words and wrote references about joy 15 times in this small book? Because his happiness was not based on the moment, but was based on the Lord’s joy which is eternal! Rejoice in Him today!
