You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created. God has created all things for His pleasure. Is God getting pleasure from the life we are living?
We often go to God to ask Him for things. How about going to God and say to Him Lord what can I do for You? What can I give you? How can I serve you? Better yet Lord How can I please You?
To please God is to serve Him in His purpose, His will and His desires. For examples:
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.(Romans 12:1-2)
Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord , for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the Lord of Lords! For His mercy endures forever: To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who made great lights, For His mercy endures forever— The sun to rule by day, For His mercy endures forever; The moon and stars to rule by night, For His mercy endures forever. Who remembered us in our lowly state, For His mercy endures forever; And rescued us from our enemies, For His mercy endures forever; Who gives food to all flesh, For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endures forever.
Psalms 136:1-9, 23-26
John 13:34 says to,
Love one another like Christ loves us.
Colossians 3:23 says,And whatsoever all of you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.
As proverbs 3:6 tells us, acknowledge Him in all our ways. Give Him thanksgivings, praises and worship. Let us not just continue to serve Him, but to serve Him only in ways that that please and give Him pleasure. Amen!
Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen.
