Is God happy?

  |  0 Comments

IS GOD BY NATURE HAPPY OR UNHAPPY? I’m convinced most people view God as typically unhappy. They think, Maybe he has occasional moments of happiness, but because we sin we make God unhappy over and over. But this logic begins in the wrong place—with us. We flatter ourselves by imagining we are the primary source of God’s happiness, tilting him one way or the other by what we think, do, and say. Sure, God can be happy or unhappy with a person’s thoughts or actions, just as a man who’s thoroughly happy with his family and life in general can still be unhappy with someone else. However, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit can never be disappointed with each other. They’ll always bring only happiness to one another forever.Happy

David Murray identifies six kinds of happiness available to unbelievers and believers alike: social, natural, vocational, physical, intellectual, and humorous.

Murray calls that unique happiness “a joy that at times contains more pleasure and delight than the other six put together.”[
