Psalms 4:6


Who can provide happiness, and how?


The phrase, who will
show us good, is an expression for how do we find happiness.




6 There be
[rab] that say, [‘amar] Who will
[ra’ah] us any good [towb]? LORD, [Yahovah] lift thou
[nasa’] the light [‘owr] of thy countenance [paniym]
upon us. KJV-Interlinear



6 Many are saying,
“Who will show us any good?” Lift up the light of Thy countenance
upon us, O Lord! NASB

The phrase, who will
show us good, is an expression for how do we find happiness.


And as we have already
learned from the first psalm, happiness s (plural) come from God.


Whereas happiness
(singular) is what man seeks, in his attempt to relate happiness to things that
are external from himself.


Humanity seeks happiness
in things, in sensations. People seek wealth, money, in acquisitions, in
entertainment, in social interactions, in sensual activities. And all of these
things are separate and apart from ones inner self. They are all temporary and
without substance.


God provides happiness s
in many different forms, and Gods happiness s are internal to the soul and an
integral part of your existence. God does not provide happiness in things,
because as circumstances change, then your happiness or mood is subject to


However, doctrine is
consistent, unchangeable, reliable and permanent. Doctrine in the soul creates
a palace, a temple, a fortress within your inner self. And once you possess
something in spirit, then you possess it forever.


Lifting up the light of
countenance, is an expression for grace. Grace is Gods favor. And when God
gives you favors, then that is something remarkable and phenomenal. The world
in all of its glory, cannot match even one single small favor that God can
provide. And God provides favors in abundance to those who advance in their
spiritual lives.


Who can show happiness?
Who can provide happiness? Who can accomplish a fulfilled and complete life?


Only God can do that,
and He does it through the written word, Bible doctrine.


You can look to the
world and you will end up with nothing. You can look to doctrine, and your life
will end up with phenomenal blessings beyond imagination.




Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
