Most people don't know what makes them happy. If they did, they wouldn't keep doing the things that make them unhappy.
You likely don't know what is in your own best interests. If you did, you would be happy all the time. Think of a situation you are trying to control. If you are honest, you will realize and admit that you often have conflicting goals and outcomes you want to happen.
You don't know exactly what will make you happy, and this creates a lot of angst and depression. That is why trying to control anything is futile. When you release control to God, that is a strong statement of faith that He will completely take care of you. He knows what is your highest good and what will give you true joy --- the joy of His Kingdom.
