HOW TO HAVE A HAPPY LIFE

THE PSALMIST WRITES in Psalm 104:15
Wine that gladdens human hearts,
oil to make their faces shine,
and bread sustains their hearts.
Psalm 104 is a great recounting of God's creative, providing, and sustaining work in all of His creation.  In verse fifteen I  note not only His physical sustaining work, but His salvific and sustaining work for our souls.

Wine, draws us to remember the saving blood of Jesus. 
                                                                    (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
Oil, the anointing and preserving work of the Holy Spirit.
                                                                                         (John 14:15-27)
Bread, the very Word of God which grants wisdom for life. 
                                                                                            (Matthew 4:4)
