Desire And Power

The more things go wrong in this world, and the older I get, the more I want to please God. What about you? Do you desire to please Him? When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, God works in you to change your desires from self-seeking to God-seeking.

When you make a wrong choice, or do something that displeases Him, most times, you know it immediately. There’s a feeling of uneasiness on the inside of you. You might even feel a little sick to your stomach. That’s because the desire to please God is built inside of you. That “feeling” is the Spirit’s convicting that keeps you on the right path. God doesn’t just give you the desire to please Him; He gave you the power to please Him. He didn’t just call you; He equipped you! So follow that inner prompting.

Today, even when you make a mistake, even when you have a setback, God is always ready to help you. He loves you so much, and He wants the best for you. His plans and purposes for your life are good. When you are totally committed to Him, nothing will stop Almighty God from accomplishing great and marverlous things in and through you!

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”

(Philippians 2:13, NLT)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for filling me with the desire to please You. Father, I know that as I follow Your promptings, You are leading me in the path of life. God, I pray for the desire and the power to do what pleases You. I love You and bless Your holy Name, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

We pleasing God does not make Him to do anything for us. By pleasing Him I think we are trying to tell Him that we appreciate what He has done for us even before we were born and we are ready to always reverence Him as our only Lord. Very true, anytime we do the wrong thing instead of doing it right, there is always unease in our mind and spirit. Great post. God bless you.

Pleasing God will not help your salvation one jot. Salvation is not about what we do for God, It’s not about pleasing God in any way. It’s about what God did for us. His amazing, undeserved, unearned, unmerited grace. We can do nothing for God, because even before we were born or even thought of, God has done everything for us through His son Jesus Christ..
