We love offering little nuggets of advice, support, or sympathy. They come in handy when we want people to feel better. But what if the guidance you’re giving or receiving just isn’t true? What if God Never Said That?
This four-week series tackles common myths about God, like “God wants you happy” or “God never gives you more than you can handle,” and how those myths keep us from having a deeper relationship with Him.
Part 1, we’re going to talk about what may be the most popular misbelief about God in our western version of Christianity. That is that God wants you happy.
I would love with all my heart to be able to tell you, above all else, God wants you happy. Above all else, God wants you to enjoy your life. Above all else, God only wants good things to happen in your life, and God never wants anything bad to happen in your life, because for you, the bottom line is: God wants you to be happy.
