Thursday’s Devotion: Please God Above All Else

Seek to please God above all else.  As you journey though each day, there will be many choice-points along your way.  Most of the day’s decisions will be small ones you have to make quickly.  You need some rule of thumb to help you make good choices.  Many people’s decisions are a combination of their habitual responses and their desire to please themselves and others.  This is not God’s way for you. Strive to please God in everything, not just major decisions. This is possible only to the extent that you are living in close communication with the Lord.  When His presence is your deepest delight, you know almost instinctively what will please Him.  A quick glance at the Lord is all you need to make the right choice.  Delight yourself in Him more and more; seek His pleasure in ALL you do.

“And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him." –John 8:29

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” -Hebrews 11:6

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”-Psalms 37:4
