A man wanted to move to a new house so he thought of selling his old house. So he talked to a broker to sell it. At the same time he was looking for a new house to buy so he looked at the newspaper and came across an ad. This house has everything that he wanted. He called up the number and upon inquiring found out it was his house. All the while he didn’t have to look for a dream house, he was living in it already.
The happiness and contentment that each of us has been longing for cannot be found in something outside of us, like a career or a material possession, it is found inside of us. The Bible says that we have been given everything we need for living a godly life (2 Peter 1:3). Joy and peace is fruit of the Holy Spirit.
We find it once we focus our attention on developing our intimacy with God. Has your heart been restless, lacking peace, craving for something that will make you happy? Remember, you already have it in Christ. It has already been given to you. All you have to do is nurture it as you strive to walk more closely with Jesus.
