Heaven Is A Happy Place

11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Heaven is where God is fully manifest and in His presence there is fullness of joy. That's why Heaven is a happy place!

FULLNESS OF JOY! We have never yet experienced that, but in Heaven we will.

4 "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

In Heaven there will be nothing that will ever cause unhappiness. Everything will always be perfect.

LUKE 15:10 NKJ
10 "Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

Angels are smiling, not frowning. God is not mad. No one in Heaven is having a bad day. No one is struggling.

17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Where God rules everything is right and there is peace and joy! God Himself is the Source of joy and is Himself full of joy.

17 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."

God is not worried or afraid. He rejoices in His work, His creation. He has confidence in His plan and His ability to carry it out. In His presence is fullness of joy because He is full of joy and everything He does produces joy.

4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The LORD shall hold them in derision.

Bad things may be happening here on earth. But it is not worrying Heaven or causing discouragement there. Because a glorious future has been determined and nothing will stop God's plan.

Jesus of Nazareth came from Heaven and perfectly revealed God to us in human flesh. He was not a somber man everyone was afraid to be around. No! Jesus attracted people like children and sinners. He was known as a friend of sinners. Jesus was no killjoy. As a perfect man with complete faith in God, it is very likely that Jesus laughed a lot, rejoicing in God and His creation.

Even though we still face things on earth that are not perfect, because Heaven is our true home we should be happy, too!

SAY THIS: Heaven, my eternal home, is a happy place!
