God Wants You To Be Happy

The word “provisions” means more than a simple wish or desire: God’s Provisions is an expression that means “God’s stated conditions and stipulations and God’s wise preparations for future contingencies”. In other words, God’s Plans and Projects to His Creation. His Plans of Love to our life. He has stipulated His Provisions of Love for our life and therefore we need to comply with those Divine Provisions.
When we walk according to God’s Will, our life is like a river: sometimes full of obstacles and meanders, but always running firmly on its own natural bed and course to meet its ultimate goal. On the other hand, if you are not obedient to God’s Will, you cannot be a happy and fulfilled person. A tree fulfills its role in nature even if it does not bear flowers and fruit, because it constantly transforms CO2 into oxygen, thus guaranteeing the process of life on earth.
Creatures that fulfill the purpose of their own existence are a blessing for themselves and everybody around them. Those who do the opposite of what God asks from them are betraying their own nature and the reason of their own existence: consequently, they become frustrated and unhappy, literally disgraceful, because they are “deprived of grace”; they blocked grace to themselves. The human creature was created by God and to God. When you guide your steps towards Him, you become a blessing to yourself and everybody else and your life is full of happiness.
