Numbers 32:1-42 – We say, “We want to be happy.” You, Lord, say to us, “What about being holy?”

Numbers 32:1-42

We say, “We want to be happy.” You, Lord, say to us, “What about being holy?” Happiness is like ‘the elusive butterfly.” We try to catch it – and it keeps on evading our grasp.” Lord, how can we find true happiness? Happiness comes to us when we are blessed by You, when we’re learning to take delight in Your Word: “Blessed is the person who … delights in the teachings of the Lord” How are we to enjoy the blessing of true happiness?  We find true happiness when we’re learning to rejoice in You, the God of our salvation, the God who leads us on the Highway of Holiness” (Psalm 1:1-2; Isaiah 35:8). Help us, Lord, to keep on taking the High Road – God-centred holiness. Help us never to be content with the low road – self-centred happiness.
