God Wants You To Enjoy Life

"Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment" (1 Timothy 6:17 NIV).

"The way you fight fear is with truth and the truth says God "richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment" (1 Timothy 6:17b NIV). "

You may be under a lot of stress right now because of the economy, but God still wants you to enjoy life.

He doesn't want you to live without fun. The apostle Matthew spent three years with Jesus and he wrote, "[Jesus] came, enjoying life" (Matthew 11:19 PH).

As a Christian, you can enjoy life because your conscious is clear. You can enjoy life because you are secure within God's love. You can have fun, laughing in church. You can enjoy friends who don't manipulate you --- because they are learning to be like Jesus and that means they are learning to look out for the interests of others.

Unfortunately, there are many people who do not want to let God into their lives because they fear God will make them give up anything that is fun.

In other words, they think that to become a Christian is the same as saying the party's over, that to be spiritual is to be miserable. People are frantically looking for fun fixes, but that means they operate under the law of diminishing returns. They spend more time, more money, and more energy to get less and less of a thrill. They go around asking, "Are we having fun yet?" 

The way you fight fear is with truth and the truth says God "richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment" (1 Timothy 6:17b NIV).

God wants you to enjoy life!
