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. Thereâ€™s a feeling of uneasiness on the inside of you. You might even feel a little sick to your stomach. Thatâ€™s because the desire to please God is built inside of you. That â€œfeelingâ€ is the Spiritâ€™s convicting that keeps you on the right path. God doesnâ€™t just give you the desire to please Him; He gave you the power to please Him. He didnâ€™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!
â€œFor God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.â€(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 Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
