Are You Pleasing God?
All things are and were created for His pleasure. Are you pleasing God? Do you know what pleases God? The Bible says that He is worthy to receive Glory, honour and power, these things please God. Let’s look at the scripture and define a few things that God finds pleasure in.[Eph.6:5-7] Make sure that you are not trying to please men, but truly pleasing God.
- It’s all about Him and not about you! Who’s getting the glory?
- [Eph.1:12, 14] to the praise of His glory
- [Phil.1:9-11] should be filled with the fruits of righteousness because of Jesus Christ
- [Gal.5:26] If glory is not directed to God it is vain glory (American idol) and Satan is getting glorified
- [Prov.25:27] never seeking your own glory, [2Sam.6:6-7] Ask Uzzah about touching God’s Glory
- Is God getting glory from your life? or is it all about you?
- [1 Chr.29:17] Your Uprightness, living a God honoring life
- [Prov.11:20] the upright are His delight
