According to the dictionary, being “happy” means feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. But the Bible defines happiness as follows, when it says that; if you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, you should keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies. You should turn away from evil and do good,
search for peace, and work to maintain it. (See 1. Peter 3:10-11) As a disciple of Jesus Christ you should get happy when you are being hated, insulted, excluded, cursed, mocked, persecuted, lied about and, all sorts of evil things are being said about you for being a Christian. It should make you very happy to know that God will bless you and give you a great reward in Heaven! (See 1. Peter 4:14. Matthew 5:11-12 and Luke 6:22-23 ) “Are any of you happy? You should sing praises!!!” James 5:13 NLT
