31 Days to Happiness is based mostly on the Book of Ecclesiastes. Pastor Jeremiah brings out the message that almost every chapter in that book has to give us, which is: Without God, all is in vain. No matter who you are, what you do, where you go or what you think or believe—all life is vain without God.
I agree with Pastor Jeremiah and say that the book’s overall message is simply telling its readers that without God your life will have no meaning or purpose. I recommend all people read the book of Ecclesiastes before or during the reading of Pastor Jeremiah’s book. This is an accepted method for Scripture study. Ecclesiastes will give one wisdom and, if more wisdom is needed, one can ask the Lord and He will gladly give it.
The thing that hit me hardest in Pastor Jeremiah’s book is the fact that I am one of those who think I know best and the Lord should always do what I want Him to. I forget that God has a plan for my life already and the best living I can do is written in His plan. Indeed, we should all walk with the Lord moment by moment and let Him deal with our futures.
