Today Reminder - 19 April 2012 (Please God)

My prayer for you for today is that you will live to please God, in Jesus name.

1 Thessalonians 2:4
For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts.

Please God. God alone examines the motives of our hearts, my goodness this statement made by Paul surely made me think this morning. How many times do we do something for someone just to please them yet inside we are angry about it. God not only sees the deed but He also sees the intentions behind it. We must be so careful about the way we commit our lives to please. We must please God in everything we do, from the smallest “hallo” up to your commitment in a relationship. We are so easily blinded by the enemy in who God is in our daily lives and in how we behave and treat other. We forget that God is not just somebody that we must keep happy. He is God and ultimately holds your salvation in His hands. 

My dear friend, it is so important that we remember who God is and that we realize how important it is to please Him and not ourselves nor people but God and God alone. We must remember who God is in the way we are with people and in our motives in everything we do.

I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you wisdom today so that you will know how to please God in everything and with everyone.

Have a wonderful day dear friend of Jesus.
