The Pleasure of God.

Topic: The Pleasure of God.

Text: Revelation 4 vs 11.

I'm created in the image of God and God shall give me grace to fulfil His pleasure all the days of my life. I shall meet the expectations of my God. I shall not fall, I shall not fail and I shall not falter from the pleasure of God in Jesus' mighty name. Amen.

Prayer Target:

Brethren seeking closeness to God. Those seeking a break-up from forces of compromise, pollution and contamination to achieve purity and holiness.

Revelation 4 vs 11 is a song that we know too well: "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".  However, this scripture conveys a cardinal truth that we cannot afford to ignore: the truth of God's pleasure. Everything that God created, including you and I were created for His pleasure.  Whatever does not give pleasure to God cannot bring any blessing to man.

What is the pleasure of God? It means satisfaction, joy, enjoyment, contentment God derives from His creation. It means conducts, tendencies, activities and engagements that make God feels good and wins His approval. God feels pains when iniquities abound; when His laws are ignored and when His words are either disbelieved or un-heeded. But when righteousness and light flourish, His pleasure rises and His blessings come down. This season, the blessings of God will come down for you in Jesus' name.

God's pleasure is that all His children should live in obedience. He has no other desire. If you obey God, His blessings will obey you. There is no deceit at all with God. Although man is given to guile and lies: God is never deceived. God also has pleasure in those who praise and worship Him. As a matter of fact, He is always looking for worshippers. You can be one today and join His saints and angels that worship Him in spirit and truth.
Also, God has pleasure in those who give cheerfully. It is simportant for us to separate cheerful and righteous givers from fearful and unGodly givers. There is a giving that gets to God and there is a giving that gets to the receiver alone. Whoever gives without the spirit of God is a mere trader. Both Proverbs 15:8 & 21:27 say that the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord. Wicked ones give fearfully, hoping that their giving will save them from the wrath of God. Such giving is a waste because only repentance separates man from the wages of sin.

Therefore, as we celebrate the birth of the Lord, seek the pleasure of God more than any other thing. Christmas is glorious if Christ is in our lives. Anything short of this is mere jamboree. For the true children of God, Christmas is a season of celebration and reflection. Celebration because Christ is worth jubilating about. Reflection because  Christ must increase and we must decrease.  Worldly riches, knowledge and noise without Christ are less than nothing. Only the children of light can live forever more. Amen. Hallelujah!

Is there anything in your life that does not give pleasure to God? Please, quickly drop it. I repeat: quickly drop it. I repeat again: quickly drop it. God is sending me to you this season to stop giving pains to Him. This may be a last opportunity, only God knows. It is no longer fashionable to live in darkness. Darkness is the worst proof of  spiritual laziness- only lazy souls follow Satan.  Concerning the birth and ministry of Jesus Christ, the Bible says in Matthew 4:16 that: "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up". Have you embraced this "great light"?  God bless you & merry Xmas!
