The Secret

One day, one friend asked another,

“How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy,
and you never seem to get down.”


With her eyes smiling, she said,

“I know the Secret!”
“What secret is that?”
To which she replied,
“I’ll tell you all about it,
but you have to promise to
share the Secret with others.”


“The Secret is this:

I have learned there is little I can do
in my life that will make me truly happy
I must depend on God to make
me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life,
I have to trust God to supply
according to HIS riches.
I have learned most of the time
I don’t need half of what I think I do.
He has never let me down.
Since I learned that ‘Secret’ , I am happy.”


The questioner’s first thought was,

“That’s too simple!”
But upon reflecting over her own life
she recalled how she thought a bigger house
would make her happy, but it didn’t!
She thought a better paying job
would make her happy, but it hadn’t.
When did she realize her greatest happiness?
Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren,
playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,
a simple gift from God.


Now you know it too!

We can’t depend on people to make us happy.
Only GOD in His infinite wisdom can do that.
Trust HIM!
And now I pass the Secret on to you!
So once you get it, what will you do?


YOU have to tell someone the Secret, too!

That GOD in His wisdom will take care of YOU!
But it’s not really a secret…
We just have to believe it and do it..
Really trust God!

A PRAYER OF ENCOURAGEMENT

“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” 1 John 5:14, 15

Father, in the Name of Jesus I draw nigh unto you this day for I know that the Lord is nigh unto all that call upon Him; to all that call upon Him in truth. Father I know that every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1: 17) ; I know that whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continueth therein, he being NOT a forgetful hearer; but a doer of the work, this man shall be Blessed in his deed. (James 1: 25). So Father I bring my Prayer petition before you this day. Father, I am your precious child, your favorite child, I declare that favor goes before me and prospers my way. Father you have heard my prayer request regarding the matters of: _________________ and ______________. It seems that all kinds of temptations and tests surround me and that my choices and strategies regarding what I will do are critical to a good outcome. So I go to your Word for direction which says: My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this that the trying of your faith worketh patience; But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire wanting nothing. Father your word says: If any of you LACK wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to ALL men liberally and upbraideth not; and it SHALL be given him. But let him ask in faith nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. James 1: 2-7) Father I therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace on my behalf in my time of need. (Hebrews 4: 16)

And I simply ask that you will pour your love upon me this day, give me wisdom, revelation, grace and mercy. I pray that the eyes of my understanding will be enlightened this day in the knowledge of who you are. I pray that in any trial or test that I will be sober minded, grave and temperate. I know that you are able Lord to do exceeding abundantly above all that I could ask or think according to the power that worketh in me. (Ephesians 3: 20). I declare that I am fully persuaded having full confidence that what You have promised you are fully able to perform. (Romans 4: 21) I thank you Lord for hearing my prayer and for answering my prayer in Jesus Name. AMEN.
