Happy people have faith...

By Dr. Henry Cloud

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." -Ephesians 2:8-9

Faith increases happiness. We have this chip inside of us that is activated when we're involved in the spiritual life with God. Faith is a life changer and there are all sorts of measures for this, from improvement in health and wellness, to success in accomplishing goals, to bettering relationships, and more.

Faith orientation changes who we are, exactly as the Bible says it does, because we were designed not only for relationships with others, but also to have a relationship with God.

I know that there are many people who give and serve in faith, and still calamity comes. We know that. And life is not long for everyone. However, we do know this - that our quality of life and our happiness is enhanced by the life practices we engage in if they follow God's design for us, whatever our time is here on earth.

(Excerpted from a recent message on the "Hour of Power.")

Prayer: Dear God, how blessed I am to put my faith in you. Having faith that you are in control lifts the struggles off my shoulders and onto yours. Thank you for designing me to have faith in you. Amen.

Reflection: How has your faith in God enhanced your life?
