TOPIC: LIVING TO PLEASE GOD

DATE: THURSDAY 27th AUGUST 2020

SCRIPTURE: 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. Revelation 4:11.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot live with God in eternity if you cannot live for Him on earth. 

Yesterday, we saw that one of the things that constitute our readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven is being born again.

Today, we shall look at yet another thing that constitutes readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven.

It is living to please God with your life

You were created to give pleasure to God with your life, so you don’t live just to please yourself. You don’t live to please society, and you don’t live to please the devil; you live to please God, your Maker.

In Philippians 1:21, Paul the apostle said, For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Concerning Jesus Christ, God says, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17

This is also corroborated by Matthew 17:5 which says, While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Live to please God with your life

Beloved, endeavour to answer the following questions objectively: Who is your life giving pleasure to, God, yourself or the devil? What you do with money, who is it giving pleasure to? Can God say that He is pleased with your life based on the way you are living? Can God say He is happy with you? Someone is happy with the way you dress or appear, who is that person, God or the devil? 

Now, why is it necessary to live to please God? Revelations 4:11 says, 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.

You are to exist to please God because you were created for His pleasure. So, you cannot say, “I can dress the way I please. I will live the way I want”. No! You don’t have the license to live the way you want.

If God created you for His pleasure and you don’t live in this world for His pleasure, how will you end in eternity? You cannot live with God in eternity if you don’t live for Him on the earth. 

So, live to please God with your life, not the devil, society or yourself.

Remember this: You cannot live with God in eternity if you cannot live for Him on the earth. 

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Refuse to live for yourself, the devil, or society. 

2. Make up your mind to live only for God.

PRAYER:  O Lord, from today, I refuse to live for myself, the devil or society. I receive the grace to live for You only, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: And if there is anyone that is trusting God for success and breakthrough on earth, a major key to that is to be determined to give God pleasure. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Ezekiel 7-9

AMAZING FACT: The chemical compound in the body which causes feelings of ecstasy (phenylethylamine) is also contained in chocolate.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the grace to please God with your life this day in Jesus’ Name.
