HAPPPINESS

THE SECRET OF SUCCESS

Happiness is a powerful tool that God had given man for successful living. Wherever you find happiness, you will find success there. That is the reason why Satan had been fighting seriously against happiness. We must make a point very clear here – laughter is not happiness and joy is from the fountain of the heart.

1.   THE POWER OF HAPPINESS Proverbs 12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad. Proverbs 14:30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones. Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

We can summarize the POWER OF HAPPINESS – Happiness
