Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice!”
That’s the way it going to be with the person who is obeying the word of God. He has an anchor to keep grounded as the daily storms of life exist around him. The faithful are not spared a lot of the problems of life—they face them too. But the difference is the faithful have God’s help while the other people don’t (Psalm 34:1-22).
It’s like having or not having insurance. All need it, all aren’t spared problems, but it is good to have when problems come. And those with car crashes and health problems, face serious consequences by not having insurance.
A faithful person is happy because when life ends a greater reward awaits. Those without God go though life miserable, die, and face damnation.
