Romans 8:28

“God wants me to be happy.”

Some view God as a personal “genie” waiting to grant our wishes. Sometimes we even justify our sinful actions by thinking “God just wants me to be happy.” Happiness is always tied to circumstances and to the feelings and emotions that come with them. Our circumstances are always changing. God wants us to be obedient to him, to trust him, and to know everything he does is for our good, even if it doesn’t make us feel “happy” in that moment.
