Yesterday a new book was released by a prominent pollster. He claimed that it was the most comprehensive study ever done, coving more than 6000 interviews, dozens of topics and 15 years of research. The book contains, he said, proof of what Americans really want. He went on to cite some of the questions, the statistics and their interpretation. I don’t recall all of the examples he gave but one did stand out: “The more spiritual or religious a person is, the more in touch with God they are, the happier and more content they are.
That was hardly news to me. The Bible teaches that the more we submit to God’s will for our lives, the more He will bless us. And how can a person not be happy, filled with joy, and content knowing what treasure they have awaiting them when this life is done? No, I don’t need this new book or its author to tell me this. The Author of my faith has already assured me of it in His Word.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I am so thankful for the peace You put into my heart and the promises I have assured me by Your Word and sacrifice.
