Revelation 4: 11.
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.“
The Universe’s and all that is in them, including ‘we the people,’ were created for God’s Pleasure.
We find Jesus, as a man, doing God’s will, Pleasing Him.
So how do we Please Him?
■ By Speaking, Preaching, Sharing the Gospel. (1 Thessalonians 2:4)
■ Do good and to communicate, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. (Hebrews 13:16)
■ The Sacrifices, of Reverence and Awe come from an appreciation of who God is. Acceptable worship combines these motives. (Hebrews 12:28,29)
■ Visiting widows and orphans, Sacrifices of words must be accompanied by deeds of love toward others. (James 1:27)
■ Helping others Financially (Philippians 4:18)
■ That we present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)
■ Enoch, pleased God. He believed that God IS. (Hebrews 11:5,6)
■ It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. (1 Corinthians 1:21)
All these things Please God. When God is Pleased, we receive a promice.
“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.“
When we do not please God, by not believing on His Word, or Trusting in His Protection. We may die in the wilderness. (1 Corinthians 10:5)
It is easier to question God, than to believe Him. We gladly except the Promise of Salvation, we feel the weight of Sin and Shame leave us as we are Filled with Christ.
We fail, by not following up, by sacrificing our wants and desires, in study and prayer, accepting God’s way, by Walking With Him.
Matthew 5: 6.
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”
To Please God, to be truly Righteous, we must Hunger and Thirst for More of Him.
Set our faces, like flint, to love, Worship and obey Jesus, as He leads and guide’s us by the Holy Spirit.
Saints, learn to set your hearts, to Pleasing God. You believe and you are blessed now.
Walk with Him, and receive His Blessings, a new.
