[adsense] Our God is a God of purpose. God had reasons for creating man. God wanted man in His image and in His likeness. Genesis1:26. God also created man to show forth His praises and glory, Psalm102:18 and Isaiah43:21. God also created man to give him pleasure.
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. Revelation4:11
Pleasing God is giving God pleasure. This is a duty of every Christian. If we truly love God, we want to do what will give Him delight and make Him rejoice over us and do us good. It is impossible for God to lie. What He promises to do, in His word and through the mouth of His prophets, He will do them. John8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hast not left me alone; for I do those things that please him. When you enjoy the presence of God, mountains and hills will bow before you, and only goodness and mercy will be following you. Your prayers will be answered when we obey his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 1John3:22
Yield Yourself To God Totally: This earth is not our permanent abode. We are here for a moment and we shall soon return home to give account of our stay here on earth. Life is like a school, and all our trials are indeed tests and examinations of life. What type of report sheet do we want to take home to the Father who created us? We all belong to God and we are accountable to him, 2Corinthians5:10. There is no hiding place from God. He is all knowing. He searches the hearts and knows all the reins. Just as your residence on earth is temporary, so are the pains and aches you are going through now. They will soon pass away. Be careful of what you do on earth. Exodus23:2 tells us not to follow multitude to do evil. Do not say that some people are doing what God hates and you will join them. Your case is different. Do what pleases God. He alone can reward you. You must not miss out of the new things God will be doing this last month of the year.
Be Obedient To God Totally. Do things that delight God. Read Deuteronomy28:1-14 to see the reward of obedience. The remaining verses are the reward of the disobedient. Obedience to parents pleases God, Colossians3:20 and Jeremiah35; Read Hebrews13:21, God is well pleased when you do good and give things to people, Hebrews13:16. Boasting that you know God as loving and righteous God is a agreat delight to God. Jeremiah9:24.
Put Off The Old Man: This pleases God greatly. Forsake the camp of the devil totally.Colossians3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, malice, wrath,blasphemy and filthy communications out of your mouth. When you listen to some Christians, you will doubt their followership of Jesus. They talk raw as if they are still in the world. Colossians3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deed. Satan is the Father of liars so whose kingdom are you projecting when you lie? Purpose in your heart to put off anything that does not give God pleasure. Always ask yourself if your action will plase God before you do it. Drop it like hot coal if you know that God will not be happy with it.
Put On The New Man: It delights God when you put on the new man after His likeness and image. Always behave like your Father. The purpose of reading the Bible is to gain the knowledge and renew the new man with the knowledge of God. Colossians3:12,13,14 Put on therfore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against you; even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. Study each of the key words in these verses and read the entire Colossian3. Do not lie to your spouse, or boss or to anyone at all. If you know that you will not lie, you will always do the right thing. Do not be menpleaser, but please God and fear Him.
Expect New Things: This is your month of reward, month of justification and month of greater achivement, of decoration and of unrival lifting. Believe God to perform His word for you. Forget all the past attacks and the unpleasant things you have gone through, and expect God to do new things for you this new month to crown your year with His goodness. Isaiah43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. This is the time to be praising God and be reminding God by form of declaring His word. “New things will begin to happen in your life, always get ready for them”. Nobody can stop the move of God in your life except you. Do not stop the move of God in your life. Do what pleases God and avoid what displeases Him.
God will give you: new heart, new name, new anointing, new finances, new baby and new desires. God will not share His praises and His glory with anyone, Isaiah42:8-10. Sing new songs to Him and praise His Holy name. Be ready for the new things God is about to do in your life.
Glory to God. Jesus is Lord!
